Join us for a Christmas Fairytale - Saturdays and Sundays from 1st to 23rd December and on Christmas Eve.

At our magical event, visitors can enter our brand new fairytale castle and take a journey to the North Pole. After getting our penguins to dance, you will walk though the Toymaker's Christmas cottage and then witness Santa's sleigh all ready for its Christmas journey into a starlit night. Then meet Santa himself in his cosy fairytale grotto, which evokes an atmosphere of a bygone age. Every child visiting our Grotto will receive a present from Father Christmas.

Visitors to our enchanting grotto have commented about the relaxed atmosphere and attention to detail, and this year there is so much more to see than ever before. It really is a festive experience like no other.

You can also join in with various Christmas activities around the Farm, including Christmas cookie decorating, a festive-themed hunt and there is mulled wine and a mince pie for every parent. Plus you can enjoy all the usual Fairytale Farm attractions and see our enchanting Christmas lights, which are bigger and better for 2018. 

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 £5.70, plus normal admission, and this includes Santa visit, gift, Christmas cookie decorating plus the mince pie and mulled wine for the parents. Tickets are only available online, and cannot be purchased at the farm admissions desk. We only have a set allocation of tickets for each day and once these have sold out no further slots will be available.

Please note that Mouse Town - which has been specially themed for Christmas - will only be open between 12.30 and 1.30pm.

It's time for Halloween family fun!

Halloween poster 2018

We have a family friendly Halloween event this year, from Saturday 20th to Sunday 28th October 2018, with free games and activities for younger children. In our 'Fairytale Baddies and Spooks' event, we have free pumpkin carving for every child, free spooky biscuit decorating and get creative in our colouring corner and enter the on-site competition.

If visitors come dressed up for the occasion they will receive a free treat, and if they post a picture of themselves on Facebook or Twitter, next to a well-known Fairytale Farm attraction, and share the post with Fairytale Farm, they will be entered into our prize draw to win a free family annual pass to the farm, valid for a year. We also have face painting for a small extra charge.

And don't miss our special late night Halloween event on Saturday 27th October, where we combine the excitement of our spectacular illuminations with Halloween activities to create a truly memorable evening out. Visitors arriving after 5pm can take advantage of our special ‘Illuminations and Supper’ all-in farm admission and food package and will be able to join in with the extra Halloween activities, as well seeing the farm and having a stroll through the illuminated Enchanted Walk. Special evening activities will include a workshop where children can make their own potions and spells ready to cast on All Hallows Eve, and a spooky story corner. (Note that those who have paid the full admission price earlier in the day can stay on and see the illuminations free of charge, and all the hot food can be purchased individually from our Beanstalk Cafe).

Book discounted daytime tickets here, and book discounted tickets for our special evening event on Saturday 27th October here.

Illuminated Evenings are back!

Poster for illuminated evenings

Don't miss our Illuminated Evenings on Saturdays and Sundays from 13th October to 23rd December, and Monday 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 Dancing Water Fountains will be illuminated. We also have new and updated features that were not part of last year's line-up, and our Fairytale Street will be illuminated.

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 28th 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.

On these special event nights we will also be offering an all-in farm admission and food package. Our 'Illuminations and Supper' package is available from 5pm (4pm from 28th October) for £6.25 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 £5.75 (a saving of 50p 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.

Plus amazing animals, adventure play, an enchanted walk, rubber duck racing and many more attractions for the family to enjoy together.
