2017 Events

Illuminated Evenings

Don't miss our Illuminated Evenings on Saturdays and Sundays from 14th October to 17th December, and every day from 20th December to 24th December.

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, and our Fairytale Street will be illuminated.

Illuminations at Fairytale Farm

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 will be opening the Farm until late on 14th, 15th, 21st, 22nd and 28th October to celebrate the switch-on of the Illuminations, when we will stay open until two hours after dusk. On these special event nights we will be offering an all-in farm admission and food package. Our 'Illuminations and Supper' package is available from 5pm for £6.00 per person. This price gives evening entry to the Farm (with a chance to see the animals if you arrive promptly at 5pm), 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 here for only £5.49 (a saving of 51p per person from this already discounted price). Note that the animal area and playground closes at dusk so please arrive as soon after 5pm as you can if you want to see these parts of the park before the illuminations switch on.

Walking with Alpacas 2018

On Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the summer school holidays visitors to Fairytale Farm can walk with our amazing alpacas. Take one of these enchanting creatures around a farm trail and learn the art of training an alpaca to walk (alpacas are not naturally social creatures with anything other than another alpaca). It is a real one-to-one experience, with your very own alpaca.

Summer Holiday dates: Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The sessions are at 12 noon and 3pm, with access from the Huff and Puff adventure playground. Charge is £2 per person walking. Each walk will be escorted by an experienced animal handler and parents can accompany young children on the walk.
