Wishing you the most magical family Christmas,

from Our family to Yours.

Join in the fun with some gingerbread decorating, Reindeer Food creation-station, then on to 'Elf Security' to check you're on the nice list! Wind your way through the twinkly winter scenes, until you reach a very special door, where the real Father Christmas will be delighted to see you!

Santa's Toy Store

Following your heart-warming encounter with Father Christmas, the cheeky elves invite you through his twinkly winter wonderland where the most spectacular sight will be revealed! A jaw-dropping array, from floor to ceiling, of toys and games igniting tremendous excitement for the little ones, as they choose their very own Christmas gift from the genuine North Pole Toy Store.

The clock is ticking! (Oh yes it is!) Book your tickets soon to enjoy this magical festive favourite, guaranteed to have you cheering, laughing, singing and making life-long merry memories. Join Cinderella, Buttons and The Ugly Step Sisters as we tell this classic story with dancing, singing, and some traditional panto gags. (Tickets for our panto sell quicker than a pumpkin carriage! So we advise you to book early to avoid disappointment with this one!).

Plus FREE access to the rest
of the Farm Park!

Sleigh what?! YES! Festive Fishers tickets include FREE admission to Fishers Farm Park this Christmas!
