Biggest Sci-Fi Weekend ever on 20th/21st July

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. 

Fairytale Farm is an Assured Animal Attraction

Animal Assured Attraction logo

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.

Two weeks of Easter fun (6th to 22nd April 2019)

Fairytale Farm's unique Easter event is back for 2019, and we have loads of new attractions for you to see throughout the Easter holidays.

We have various activities running right through the entire Easter holidays (6th April to 22nd April). See our beautiful new 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.

And for the Easter Weekend (Good Friday 19th April to Easter Monday 22nd April 2019)...

For the Easter Weekend itself (19th-22nd April 2019) we have some additional activities. 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 £3.75 per child, including Bunny Tale and Easter Egg. (Standard farm admission charges apply).
