Fairytale Farm ready for a sparkling Christmas

Santa and elves in Grotto

Fairytale Farm has announced details of its 2016 Christmas Fairytale event. Our Christmas Fairytale is on Saturdays and Sundays from 3rd December to 18th December and then daily 19th to 24th December. Click here to buy discount tickets online.

Owner Nick Laister says that the Fairytale Farm team has been working right through the year to make the 2016 Christmas Fairytale the best ever: "We have new Christmas activities and new and improved Christmas lights and some changes to our grotto. We have a magical illuminated grotto entrance, and every parent of a child who visits Santa will get a mince pie and mulled wine."

Nick adds: "Visitors of all ages will be able to join in with various festive activities, enjoy all the usual Fairytale Farm attractions and see our enchanting Christmas lights. Special Christmas activities include Christmas cookie decorating, a chance to find clues to discover Santa's favourite Christmas carol and Christmas colouring. But the highlight for every child is sure to be the visit to see Santa in his indoor fairytale grotto where they will be able to have a chat with the man himself and receive a lovely present from Santa's workshop. And children who visit before Christmas Eve will get a chance to write to Father Christmas  with their wish list and post it in our special SantaMail post box."

The animal areas and adventure playground will be open until dusk, after which we switch on our Christmas lights, creating a wonderland of colour.

Grotto tickets are £5.20, plus normal farm admission, and this includes Santa visit, gift, Christmas cookie decorating plus the mince pie and mulled wine for the parents and all the other Christmas activities that the whole family can join in. Non-farm visitors can still meet Santa for £7.99.

Please note that Mouse Town - which has been specially themed for Christmas - will be open between 12.30 and 1.30pm each day.
