Meet Father Christmas

Once again we will be hosting Father Christmas and his cheeky elves on selected dates this November and December.

The Grotto

Father Christmas will be here at the Farm Park between 10am and 3pm on the following dates:

Saturday 24th & Sunday 25th November ……       ……
Saturday 1st & Sunday 2nd December
Saturday 8th & Sunday 9th December
Saturday 15th & Sunday 16th December
Thursday 20th – Monday 24th December

Special children’s tickets are available for these days, which include Farm Park entrance, a special time slot to see Father Christmas and their own choice of present from the Toy Room. Children, toddlers and young adults with a Father Christmas booking will also be invited into the elves workshop to make a Christmas Eve box.

We book up fast so advance booking online is strongly recommended. At least one week’s notice must be given in the event of a cancellation. 

Our cheeky elves will usher you and your child/children into Father Christmas’s luxury grotto to see the man himself, before giving you access to the Toy Room to choose your gift and see your photograph.

Once you’ve made your booking you’ll receive a confirmation email with a link to an online questionnaire. If you’d like us to personalise your grotto visit, please complete this no later than 2 days prior to your visit.

Please note for bookings on Christmas Eve, we will begin moving our animals in preparation for our closing period. Therefore, some areas of the Farm Park may be closed or feature fewer animals.

Booking tips:

  • Only children who would like to meet Father Christmas need to book in advance. To be able to book a ‘member’ ticket you will need to enter the membership number of that child. This can be found on the back of their card.
  • Accompanying adult members do not need to book.
  • Non-member children who will be coming with you and who do wish to meet Father Christmas will need a ‘Christmas Experience and Farm Park entry‘ ticket.
  • Non-member children who will be coming with you and who do not wish to meet Father Christmas will need a ‘Saver‘ admission ticket.
  • Accompanying non-member adults will need to purchase a ‘Saver‘ admission ticket. These can be bought online or at the gate.

We visited to meet Santa, and I have to say it was the most magical experience for the kids from start to finish. From the elves as soon as you open the door to big man himself & the toy shop, entertainment show and all of the trimmings – thank you it was brilliant. – Trip Advisor

Best Father Christmas I have seen in a long, long time (…) we felt that they really made an effort throughout the whole park- Trip Advisor

The elves and Santa were brilliant and for the first time in 3 years in seeing Santa in various places, we haven’t felt rushed in and out!! – Facebook

So personal and beautiful (…) a bargain! – Facebook
