The Great Santa Hunt 2023

About the event

The Great Santa Hunt is back on at the Ashburton Art Gallery and Museum these school holidays with a special late night opening event on Wednesday 20 December, so get your torches ready!

All the lights will be turned off, so you’ll need your torches for the late night opening hunt to find the sneaky Santas in their new hiding spots across the museum.

The late night event will run from 5pm - 7pm. You can head on over to the Library after the Santa Hunt at 7:15pm for some Christmas Stories and songs as we get into the Christmas spirit!

The Santas will be hiding all summer from 21 December until 31 January, so you can come back during opening hours while the lights are on and search for any you missed on opening night – or have a go at finding them all again, it may trickier than you think!

Expert Santa-hunters who can find them all will earn a badge and go in the draw to win a special prize, so good luck and happy hunting.

The Art Gallery and Museum is open 10am-4pm daily. Admission is free.
