This year we are operating a booking system to see Father Christmas in order to minimise the time spent queueing.
You can book for a 20 minute time slot where you will be invited in to the festively decorated yurt to see Father Christmas as part of a small group of up to 10 children. He will call out your child's name when it is his/her turn to meet him. Up to 2 adults can accompany your child(ren) free of charge. Extra adults will be admitted for £2, space permitting.
The cost per child is £5 which includes 20 minutes in the yurt, a chat with Father Christmas and a gift. Siblings aged 2 or under who don't want to meet Father Christmas can accompany you as long as they sit on your lap due to space limitations.
Pushchairs/buggies/prams must be left outside.
Book now to ensure your time slot and reduce waiting times. You can of course turn up without booking and pay on the night, but you will then need to wait until there is a space, or at the end of the bookable time slots (about 8pm) and join the queue, but we cannot guarantee a visit if there are large numbers.
The adults had their Christmas Carol film last night...now it's the kids' turn! Indoor showing of The Muppet Christmas Carol. The Green Place will be open as usual for food and drinks.
The Muppets perform the classic Dickens holiday tale, with Kermit the Frog playing Bob Cratchit, the put-upon clerk of stingy Ebenezer Scrooge (Michael Caine). Other Muppets -- Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie Bear and Sam the Eagle -- weave in and out of the story, while Scrooge receives visits from spirits of three Christmases -- past, present and future. They show him the error of his self-serving ways, but the miserable old man seems to be past any hope of redemption and happiness.
