New attractions for Easter holidays at Fairytale Farm

Easter bunny

Fairytale Farm's unique Easter event is back for 2020, and we have loads of new attractions for you to see throughout the Easter holidays. See our brand new Beanstalk rising into the sky, it is unique in the UK. And you can milk Jack's cow, Daisy, who won't kick or bite. Our new duck pond is now a focal point in our animal area, and the ducks love it.

See our beautiful interactive Easter display, Mother Goose's Garden Party, where you can meet the animated Mother Goose and her friends. There is a chance for children and adults to pet our adorable rabbits and guinea pigs (you won't want to put them down!). There will be free egg-shaped cookies to decorate inside the Beanstalk Cafe, an opportunity to colour our Easter pictures in the Play Room and visitors can create an Easter lamb in our craft corner.

For the Easter Weekend itself, visitors can explore our Giant Rabbit Burrow and meet the Easter Bunny, who will tell an Easter story, and every child will receive a full size Easter egg. We also have a Golden Egg Hunt, running throughout the Easter Weekend. The Easter Bunny has hidden six golden eggs somewhere on our Enchanted Walk trail - find their location and win a chocolate prize.

With the exception of meeting the Easter Bunny, all activities are completely free. A visit to meet the Easter Bunny is £3.99 per child, including Bunny Tale and Easter Egg. (Standard farm admission charges apply).

New light effects in 2019 Illuminated Evenings

Illuminations 2019













Don't miss our Illuminated Evenings on Saturdays and Sundays from 12th October to 24th November, with some new light features for 2019.

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, with a new light show for 2019. Snow White’s Castle and the Seven Dwarfs’ house, both new for 2019, 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 (3pm 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.
