Our illuminated evenings return from 6th September
We will be illuminating our popular Enchanted Walk again this year every Saturday and Sunday evening in September and October, plus during the October half term, and we will stay open until two hours after dusk each day.
The park will be open all day as normal, but when daylight fades the entire Enchanted Walk will become a magical wonderland of fairy lights, which will delight children and adults. The Mermaid Garden, Giant's Camera, The Extinct Band, Giant Party Poppers, and Light Fountains will be a blaze of colour and the Hex Water Fountain will be lit in ever changing colours. We also have new and updated features that were not part of last year's line-up.
We have a new mermaid, who lights up internally and looks beautiful, and our new Sleeping Beauty and Hansel & Gretel displays will excite children. There is an all-new Extinct Band, who are brighter and more colourful than ever.
Normal admission prices apply during the day, and visitors can stay on and watch the lights in the evening. For visitors arriving after 5pm, there will be a discounted entry price of £2 for adults and £1.75 for children and senior citizens, which will allow access to all the sections of the farm until dusk, and the illuminated sensory trail after dusk. The Beanstalk Cafe will be open throughout with a choice of hot and cold snacks.
The adventure playground and animal areas will close at dusk as the lights come on, so be sure to arrive in good time so you don't miss all that Fairytale Farm has to offer in the daylight. Our reduced price admission after 5pm on Saturdays and Sundays means that there is time to see the whole park in the daylight before the lights are switched on, which is great value. And, don't forget, our annual pass holders can visit for free, as many times as they like.
We are open every day until 2 November with the illuminations being switched on every Saturday and Sunday at dusk and throughout the October half term. See photographs of last year's display here. (Note that the illuminations will not be available after 5pm on 31 October and 1st/2nd November because of our Halloween event).
