The Magic of the Orient at the Fòrum offers a unique experience where children can deliver their letters and toddlers hand in their dummies as they get a close-up look at the best-kept secrets of the Three Kings of the Orient and their whole magic entourage.
Have you ever wondered how the Three Kings know which toys are for which home? Who has the job of organising and transporting them? How do they know what’s inside each parcel? What are the clothing and implements used by each of the creatures in the magic entourage made of? Where are all the fantastic animals travel?
Where are all the letters kept?
You’ll find the answers to all these questions and more thanks to the royal surprise that the three Kings of the Orient have lined up at the Fòrum Pergola on 28, 29, 30 and 31 December, plus 2, 3, 4 and 5 January.
To avoid situations with a high risk of infection, Their Majesties will not be able to wave at us from the traditional parade around the city streets this year. However, in line with the safety measures, they’ve prepared a magical surprise to ensure everybody can give up their baby’s dummy or hand in their letters with their wishes in person. They’ve sent a huge shipment in advance with all their most prized possessions and all the toys that will be delivered to the children of Barcelona.
An immersive route
The public will be able to visit all this cargo with an immersive route lasting 30 minutes. The visit will allow you to discover the magic secrets of the royal entourage: floats, costumes, banners, magic machines, fantastic creatures and more, plus the chance to deliver dummies and letters with all your wishes directly, using the big royal postbox.
The pages Estel, Omar and Gregori, plus all the magical creatures who help them, will not be able to receive you in person, but they will be working their magic as they meet you virtually and guide you around this special set where you can see the secret preparations for the night of 5 January to ensure that all Barcelona children receive their presents at home.
And don’t fret! The Three Kings of the Orient will be arriving in Barcelona on 5 January and the royal entourage will be ready for the most magical night of the year, ensuring every Barcelona home gets a visit, just like they do every year...
