Father Christmas will captivate little ears with the story of the first Christmas. Children will then be able to help our elves make some reindeer food and receive a small gift to take home and enjoy.
£16 per child | £12 per adult
Saturdays and Sundays from 2 to 23 December
Session times: 10.15am, 11am, 11.45am, 12.30pm, 2pm, 2.45pm, 3.30pm & 4.15pm
Includes entrance to the farmyard and playground, Father Christmas storytime, a craft activity with our elves, a gift to take home for children and a hot drink for adults. Gifts are suitable for ages up to 11.
All children ages 0 to 16 must book tickets for this event and must be accompanied by an adult.
On Sunday 3 December at 4.15pm we will be offering a quieter session of our Storytime with Father Christmas event, which will deliver the same magical experience in a more relaxed environment. Fewer tickets are available so we're able to offer more support to individual children, and background music and lighting levels will be reduced.
