Aliens to invade Fairytale Farm this weekend

Sci-Fi Weekend

For details of the 2015 Sci-Fi Weekend, please click here.

Fairytale Farm is being invaded by TV's most frightening aliens on Saturday and Sunday 2nd/3rd August when the farm park holds a special Sci-Fi Weekend in aid of charity. The aim of the weekend is to raise money for Helen & Douglas House and Sue Ryder, and there will be opportunities to donate to either or both charities at various places around the farm.

Owner Nick Laister explains what visitors might find when they visit the farm this weekend: "Fairytale Farm has had a fantastic start to the summer, with our new attractions all proving very popular with visitors. So we thought we would do something completely and utterly different - if not a little crazy - and allow ourselves to be invaded by the scariest alien race in the universe and their friends. Although the creatures may be frightening, it is all in a good cause, as we are supporting two charities that are close to our hearts. And we are not going to reveal the identities of the aliens that will be visiting as that will spoil the surprise, but what I can say is that these are some of the most famous and iconic monsters you will see on your TV screens."

The Sci-Fi Weekend runs from 10am to 5pm on both Saturday and Sunday. The alien line-up will change slightly for the two days, so visit on both days to see the full line-up - if you dare! Put the date in your diary now!

Mouse Town arrives at Fairytale Farm

Mouse TownA brand new indoor attraction opens at Fairytale Farm on 26th July 2014: 'Mouse Town'. This beautifully crafted model village is located inside a former stable building and features a quaint English rural town, complete with shops, church, houses, village pond and jail. But what makes it different from other model villages is that it is home to a family of mice who can be seen going about their daily business.

Adults will be impressed with the attention to detail in this stunning model town, built by craftsmen. Children will love watching our family of white and grey mice scampering around, looking out of windows, shopping in the butchers and cheese shop and visiting the spooky graveyard.

Such is the incredible detail of the model town, children are challenged to spot interesting features in the Town, such as 'The Cat in the Jail', 'A Penny Farthing', 'Cheese in the Window' and a 'Hot Air Balloon'.

Mouse Town will open at 10am on Saturday 26th July, and is one of the many attractions that are free once you have entered Fairytale Farm. It will stay open every day until 2nd November.

Sleeping Beauty comes to Fairytale Farm

The magical fairytale character Sleeping beauty has arrived at Fairytale Farm in a new display on our Fairytale Street. You can see her peacefully sleeping in her beautiful castle awaiting her prince. We have also opened the Hansel and Gretel scene, which pictures the moment when the witch climbs inside the oven to show Gretel how it is done.

The sets have been designed and built by theatre designer, Rhyannon Richardson, and have taken several months of design, preparation and construction. They opened for the first time on Easter Saturday and were an instant hit with our visitors.

Easter Monday is your last chance to visit the Easter Bunny in the Giant Rabbit Burrow. The Burrow is open from 10am to 4.30pm on Easter Monday (with a lunch break), so come and visit, meet the Bunny, listen to a lovely Easter story and come away with a golden egg.
