BELIEVE IN THE MAGIC OF CHRISTMAS

 

BIGGER, BETTER AND MORE IMMERSIVE THAN EVER BEFORE!

 

Norfolk’s sell-out Christmas experience is back, and this year it’s the LARGEST all-inclusive event we have EVER HOSTED! Have you been before? Well, you can expect some HUGE additions and elements for a fantastic family experience like no other! We’ve listened to feedback from our avid supporters and team, and have a whole enhanced all singing, all dancing event!

What’s included?

The Christmas Experience offers 6 activities for you to enjoy throughout the day. This includes 4 ‘free-flowing’ elements and activities, which means you can enjoy these activities at your leisure throughout the day. Additionally, there are 2 ‘timed’ elements, where you will visit Mrs Claus and help her cook up a storm in her kitchen and, of course, a timed group experience to meet Father Christmas.

Firstly, children will check in at passport control before immersing themselves in heaps of fun. Up next, head to the BRAND NEW Father Christmas’s mail room and help him sort through the mail.  Then, it’s time to head to the North Pole HQ to make reindeer food and much more. Brush up on your skills and become a fully fledged elf in our BRAND NEW ‘Snow-Olympics’ activity. Lastly head to the present workshop and learn how the elves make and repair gifts. Make sure you pay attention, as it will then be your turn to create your own craft to take home.

Now for the only 2 time-slotted elements of The Christmas Experience. Up first we have the BRAND NEW Mrs Claus’ kitchen. Watch Mrs Claus create a variety of festive bakes, before the children decorate their own gingerbread people.

Finish your magical day with a trip to Father Christmas’ front room. Watch him appear from the fireplace, listen and take part in his immersive story, before meeting Father Christmas in person where you will receive a golden coin to spend in our HUGE toyshop.

This year we’ve really UPPED the event and added lots more theming, including snow and more trees, so you and your children will really be immersed in a magical world for the duration of your visit!

Each child as standard receives an elf hat, elf passport, and a good quality craft and present. With the present retailing at £11.99.

If all of the above wasn’t enough this year your tickets also include UNLIMITED PLAY at the Fun Park and access to the Junior Farm too.

We also have a new optional HUGE Build a Teddy experience in our very own workshop, hosted by our elves to make your day out even more memorable.

There will be lots of photo opportunities where you can take some fabulous images to keep and to share with family and friends.

Can I bring food and drink?

Our 2 Cafes are open for food, Usually food or drink is not permitted on the Junior farm due to the risk of contamination from the animals, but during the Christmas Experience you are welcome to take food and drink into the expeirences, as long as you dispose of the items correctly and thoroughly wash your hands.

Are there toilets close by?

Toilets are situated on our main site approximately 70 metres from the centre of where the experience will take place.

Can I go on the farm and see the animals?
Yes of course.  Your ticket grants access to Junior farm AND Fun Park, so you can also see the animals once your experience has ended.
Can I purchase tickets on the day?
This event sells out well in advance every year, and as capacity is limited this year, we do expect demand to be high, it is unlikely you can purchase tickets on the day, but do call us, but do not turn up without booking for the experience as we will be unable to admit you.
How can I get in contact with you?
Arrival time and place?

On arrival, head to the Junior Farm kiosk. Your tickets allow you to arrive at any time from 9:30 to get the most out of the activities we have on offer. You will book a time when booking your tickets, this time is specifically for the Mrs Claus, Santa & toy shop elements of your experience, so if you are deciding to arrive close to this time, please arrive atleast 10 mins prior to your booking time to ensure we can check you in and you have time to get to the correct part of the experience. Note theabove timed elements will take around 1.5 hours, so pelase factor this into your visit plan.

Do I need to pay for babies
Yes, we have gifts and crafts relevant for various age groups.
Can I bring extra people who I haven’t booked for?
All people visiting the experience must be booked, we have to adhere to track and trace guidance and capacity limits, if you have extra people please call us in advance.
How are you ensuring this event is Covid safe?

We’ve been navigating Covid for a while now and have robust practices in place to keep you safe, around the site you will see lots of safety signage and hand sanitizer, on Junior farm there are lots of hand washing facilities with warm water. 

Can I come prior to my ticket time?

Yes! You’re ticket is the time you will be visiting Mrs Claus, Santa & the Toy Shop, these are the only time slotted elements of the experience, the rest of the elements and activities you can take part in at your leisure at any time throughout the day from 9:30 – 5:30, so we recomend making a full day of it to get the best out of your tickets.

I'd like to book the additional Build-a-teddy workshop or Festive Afternoon Tea, what time should I book for?

For the build a teddy activity you should allow yourself 45 minutes, including getting to the area.

Afternoon Tea we recomend allowing 1 hours 30 minutes for this

Remember to not clash with the ticket time you have booked for your Christmas experience, as that section of your experience will take around 1 hour 30 minutes, so allow enough time for this to finish before your other activites 

Do you offer concessions?

Unfortuantely not, this experience is a capacity driven event, so every person adult and child entering the experience requires the relevant ticket to gain access, we promise there’s lots of fun for adults and children alike!

I've got a young/restless child, is this going to be suitable?

Yes! This year we have changed the experience, so that the majority of it is free flowing, so if you need some time out or a breather you can do that! the only timed elements are the Mrs Claus, Santa and the toyshop!

Why are you launching tickets so early?

Firstly, we LOVE Christmas, but secondly, this event has become so popular over the years that it sells out so quickly, so we find this time of year works well for families to know they have secured their tickets and don’t have to worrythat they have missed out.

I've booked, but haven't received my booking confirmation email?

Sometimes when an event has high demand and lots of people bookings at one time, your confirmation email may take a little while to come through, as long as you get to the completion screen where you have a unique order reference, your booking is secure, if in doubt, log into your account on our website, and you will see your booking (if you have successfully made one) in your bookings section

I'm nervous I won't receive the booking link via email, how can I check that?

You must be signed up to our mailing list by 30th June, with your marketing preferences, set to ‘yes’ for email, we have noticed some people have signed up, but haven’t opted to receive email, so you WON’T receive the booking link, you can check your preferences by logging into your account on our booking page, then in your profile you will see a ‘preferences’ tab where you can check your marketing preferences.

What is your policy if someone in my group has Covid before they arrive?

Covid Policy: our tickets are none refundable and our standard none transferable, however if you are asked to isolate, or test positive for covid, we will refund your tickets with proof of a positive test or notification to isolate

How Many tickets can I purchase?

We are allowing a maximum group size of 8 people, but you can book seaparetly to increase the quanitity available
