Q574: Are there any regulations as to who can play 'Father Christmas' at a school or local fete for example?

Whilst there is no mandatory requirement to apply for standard or enhanced disclosure for a person wishing to be Father Christmas, if the recruiter feels that they would prefer to carry out such checks, then they will be eligible to apply.

If the Father Christmas is within a school then it is very likely that a check will be carried out by the local education authority.

Please see Q87 for more details on this kind of check.
