Illuminated Evenings 2019

Illuminated Evenings

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Don't miss our Illuminated Evenings on Saturdays and Sundays from 12th October to 24th November.

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 Dancing Water Fountains will be illuminated. Snow White’s Castle and the Seven Dwarfs’ house will also be illuminated and will look spectacular.

The farm will stay open until one hour after dusk every weekend, and daytime visitors can stay on and see the illuminations for free. We also operate a reduced admissions price from 5pm (4pm from 27th October). 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. And, don't forget, our annual pass holders can visit for free, as many times as they like.

We also offer an all-in farm admission and food deal. Our 'Illuminations and Supper' Deal is available every weekend from 5pm (4pm from 27th October) for £6.50 per person. This price gives evening entry to the Farm (with a chance to see the animals if you arrive promptly), a soup with crusty bread or hot dog plus a hot or cold drink, and finish the evening with a stroll through the illuminated gardens after the lights switch on. A truly magical evening for the whole family. You can buy these in advance online for only £5.85 (a saving of 10% per person from this already discounted price). Note that the animal area and playground closes at dusk so please arrive as soon after 5pm (4pm from 27th October) as you can if you want to see these parts of the park before the illuminations switch on.

Sci-Fi Weekend 2020

Fairytale Farm is being invaded by frightening aliens from TV and the movies in July 2020 when the farm park holds a special Sci-Fi Weekend in aid of charity. The aim of the weekend is to raise money for Let's Play, a local Banbury-based charity for disabled children, and there will be opportunities to donate to the charity at various places around the farm.

Meet aliens and other characters from famous TV shows and movies, see our alien reveal, regular alien parades, sci-fi story-telling and a little bit of science fact thrown in for good measure. There will be a special alien reveal at 11:30am on both days, and two alien parades throughout each day at 11:35am and 3pm, plus much more besides.

The Sci-Fi Weekend runs from 10am to 5pm on both Saturday and Sunday. The date will be anounced soon!

It is a real one-to-one experience, with your very own alpaca.

Summer Holiday dates: Tuesdays and Thursdays dated TBC.

The sessions are at 12 noon and 3pm, with access from the Huff and Puff adventure playground. Charge is £2.25 per person walking. Each walk will be escorted by an experienced animal handler and parents can accompany young children on the walk.
