Summary

Jackson has always wanted to meet Father Christmas. He knows all about the reindeer, he knows about the elves and the secret North Pole workshop, he knows about the magic that allows Father Christmas to deliver presents around the world in just one night, but there's one thing he doesn't know...how did Father Christmas become Father Christmas?

One Christmas Eve, Jackson’s wish comes true, and not only does he get to meet Father Christmas but he also hears his incredible story. So begins an enchanting fairy-tale journey into the world of Torvil - a mean-spirited and miserly elf who, on one magical night, discovers the true meaning of Christmas. This might not have been the story Jackson was expecting, but, as Father Christmas tells him, no good story ever is.... 

Get ready for a charming and magical story from actor and comedian Ben Miller that will remind everyone of the true spirit of Christmas and prove once and for all that Father Christmas really does exist!
