Things to see and do

There's plenty to keep the whole family entertained!

Free Christmas crafts!

At the end of the illuminated trail, you'll find free Christmas craft activities to enjoy in our Learning Centre.

Father Christmas, Mrs Christmas and the elves!

Father Christmas, dressed in traditional green, joins us from 5pm each evening for children to share their Christmas wishes and be given a small token gift. You'll find him in his chalet along with his helpful elves!

There is no additional charge for meeting Father Christmas and Mrs Christmas.

*Meeting Father Christmas cannot be guaranteed and is on a first come first served basis

Christmassy characters!

Stilt walkers join in the festive fun every evening! We expect visits from the Christmas fairy and Jack Frost!


A lovely traditional carousel will also make itself at home at the event - please note there is an additional charge for carousel rides.
