Tickets on sale for magical 2019 Christmas Fairytale event - available online only

Details of Christmas Fairytale 2019 event

 

 

 

 

 

Tickets are now on sale for our Christmas Fairytale event 2019, which runs on Saturdays and Sundays from 30th November to 8th December, then daily from 14th December to Christmas Eve. We always receive fantastic feedback about this event each year, and the 2019 event will be bigger and better than ever, with our amazing new Fairytale Castle now fully complete.

Tickets are available online only, and as this event normally sells out we recommend booking well in advance.

In this magical and immersive event, you will enter a beautiful Fairytale Castle and start your journey from the South Pole to the North Pole. You will meet some interactive dancing penguins, visit the Toymaker in his cosy log cabin and see Santa's sleigh ready to launch into a clear night sky of twinkling stars. Then you will walk through the Secret Forest to meet Father Christmas himself in his beautiful Grotto, which evokes an atmosphere of Christmas past.

Our aim is to provide a relaxed and personal visit to the Grotto, with time for your entire family to meet and greet Santa, take your own photographs with him, and watch your children’s faces light up as Santa gives each of them a wrapped present. Santa is just how you would expect him to be – magical, very friendly and wanting to spend time chatting with your little ones, asking them what they would like for Christmas and if they have been good this year!

Other Christmas activities include Christmas cookie decorating, a festive-themed hunt and mulled wine and mince pies for the parents, as well as a chance to see our extraordinary Christmas lights.

We now operate an all-in price for our Christmas Fairytale event, which covers admission to Fairytale Farm, the magical Fairytale Castle walk-through, Grotto visit and all activities. 

Prices are:

  • £6.75 for Adult/Older Children tickets (i.e. those not receiving a present from Santa);
  • £12.49 for Child Christmas Fairytale tickets (i.e. those receiving a gift from Santa); 
  • £6.25 for Senior tickets.

The whole family can accompany their children into the Grotto, as long as at least one child holds a Child Christmas Fairytale ticket.  (Visitors not wishing to visit the Fairytale Castle and Grotto at all can just pay standard admissions prices.)

To buy all-in tickets to our Christmas grotto event, including farm and Grotto admission, please go to our Christmas Fairytale Ticketing Page. This is operated by our ticketing partner joylandbooks.com. Once you have selected tickets this will take you to a secure server where you can buy the tickets online.

We are pleased to announce that Fairytale Farm is now an Assured Animal Attraction, having been awarded a quality mark by the leading industry certification scheme for farm animal attractions. Securing this quality mark required an independent inspection of the farm, and in particular an assessment of its compliance with the NFAN/HSE Code of Practice on how children and adults should interact with animals on farm parks. Thank you to all our animal staff for helping us become an assured attraction.

You can find out more about this certification scheme here.

Sci-Fi Weekend image

Fairytale Farm is being invaded by frightening aliens from TV and the movies on Saturday and Sunday 20th and 21st July 2019 when the farm park holds a special Sci-Fi Weekend in aid of charity. The aim of the weekend is to raise money for Let's Play, a local Banbury-based charity for disabled children, and there will be opportunities to donate to the charity at various places around the farm.

Meet aliens and other characters from famous TV shows and movies, see our alien reveal, regular alien parades, sci-fi story-telling and a little bit of science fact thrown in for good measure. There will be a special alien reveal at 11:30am on both days, and two alien parades throughout each day at 11:35am and 3pm, plus much more besides.

The Sci-Fi Weekend runs from 10am to 5pm on both Saturday and Sunday.
