The Odeon West End in Leicester Square recently showed the premiere of an exclusive Santa training film created to show Santa's helpers across the UK how to put the magic into Christmas.

"Santa School: The Film" was created by Odeon and the Ministry of Fun, the largest provider of Santa’s helpers to grottos across the country.

Starring Santa himself direct from the North Pole, the film showed Santa instructing his right-hand men on how to fine tune their Father Christmas persona, including how to say Happy Christmas in a number of different languages and how to deliver the perfect "ho, ho, ho".
