Fairytale Farm is recruiting!
Fairytale Farm is the UK's first visitor attraction to put disabled children first in its design and layout - but is loved by children (and adults) of all abilities. We are recruiting a Cafe/Admissions Assistant, to run the Farm on weekdays when the Farm is open to the public. The Cafe/Admissions Assistant will be in overall charge of the day-to-day running of Fairytale Farm's front-of-house visitor operation on weekdays and will ensure that every visitor to the Farm has the best experience possible. Download details here.
We are also still looking for volunteers to help with the animals and in the cafe, particularly at weekends and school holidays. If you would like to volunteer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Santa returns to Fairytale Farm in December 2014
Santa is returning to Fairytale Farm this Christmas at weekends from 6th to 21st December and then daily from 22nd to 24th December.
At our magical 'Christmas Fairytale' event, children can meet Santa in his indoor fairytale Grotto and receive a present, join in with various Christmas activities, enjoy all the usual Fairytale Farm attractions and see our enchanting Christmas lights, which are bigger and better this year.
We have designed and built a grotto with a difference, that will appeal to adults as well as children, and all the Christmas activities from last year, including Christmas cookie decorating, mulled wine and mince pies, will return. Plus join in with Santa's Christmas hunt.
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 £4.95, plus normal admission, and this includes Santa visit, gift, Christmas cookie decorating plus the mince pie and mulled wine for the parents. Non-farm visitors can still meet Santa for £7.50.
Please note that Mouse Town - which has been specially themed for Christmas - will only be open between 12.30 and 1.30pm.

Fairytale Farm in the Oxford Mail
The article features a big picture of Fairytale Farm's actors, who will be roaming around our Enchanted Walk every evening from 31 October to 2 November, scaring visitors who dare to enter 'Nightmare Farm'.
It also mentions the family behind Fairytale Farm, who will be running the event with their own children involved. The event runs for three evenings from 6.30pm to 10pm.
Click here to view a larger version of the article.
For those who are too frightened to try Nightmare Farm - which is not recommended for younger children - family activities will be running throughout the day from 31 October to 2 November.
More details on our Halloween events can be found here.
And don't forget that Fairytale Farm is open right through the October half term and our Enchanted Walk is illuminated every evening from dusk. We stay open until two hours after dusk each day.
