Fairytale Farm to reopen for 2014 earlier than planned

Due to popular demand, Fairytale Farm is reopening earlier than planned in 2014. The farm will be reopen on Tuesdays and Thursdays only from 21 January, throughout January, February and March 2014.

Owner Nick Laister says that this is due to demand from visitors: "Fairytale Farm was opened by the Prime Minister in June last year and we have been really taken by surprise by its popularity, with visitor numbers far exceeding expectations. Visitors are telling us that they would like to be able to visit the farm throughout the winter, and lots of people have been turning up at the farm to find us closed. We have therefore decided to pilot winter openings through to the end of March, when we will be opening on Tuesdays and Thursdays only. All the attractions will be open as normal, and our land drains very well so we will not have any issues with standing water or significant mud. We believe it will be a great winter day out."

The Enchanted Walk, Huff & Puff Adventure Playground and Alfie & Friends Animal Zone will all be open, as will the cafe, shop and indoor play room.

Fairytale Farm to illuminate Enchanted Walk

Illuminations

Fairytale Farm will be illuminating its Enchanted Walk until 9pm at weekends in September and October and daily through the October half term holidays.

The park will be open all day as normal, but at dusk hundreds of lights will twinkle as our Enchanted Walk will be transformed into a magical sensory experience for all the family, with the Mermaid Garden, Giant's Camera, The Extinct Band and Giant Party Poppers being highlights.

Park owner, Nick Laister, says: "During the day all the usual attractions will be open as normal, with the Enchanted Walk, Huff & Puff adventure playground and Alfie & Friends animal zone being the highlights. At dusk, we will close the playground and animal areas and illuminate the Enchanted Walk, which should be a magical experience for children of all abilities. We believe this is the first of its kind in the UK, and we are excited to see how children will respond to this unusual attraction."

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 areas after dusk. The Beanstalk Cafe will be open throughout with a choice of hot and cold snacks. Carers, annual pass holders and those under 3 can enter for free.

Fairytale Farm is open weekends only until 27 October, then daily again from 28 October to 3 November. There will also be a spectacular Halloween event (details to be announced soon) and join us for a Christmas Fairytale on Saturdays and Sundays from 30 November to 15 December and daily 21 to 24 December.
