Christmas Fun with Santa on Junior Farm  – possibly the best Santa Experience for little ones in Norfolk


Norfolk’s favourite Santa has agreed once again to take time out of his busy schedule at the North Pole and will be coming to Junior Farm at Wroxham Barns with his Elves for his hugely popular ‘Santa Experience’ where you can have Christmas Fun with Santa on Saturday 1st, Sunday 2nd, Saturday 8th, Sunday 9th, Saturday 15th, Sunday 16th, Wednesday 19th, Thursday 20th, Friday 21st, Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd December.

There will be no need to rush as your visit lasts 1½ hours so there will be plenty of singing, games and the opportunity to spend quality time with Santa and his Elves. NEW this year is Elf College where the children take part in fun challenges – including learning the “Elfabet” – before each child receives a gift from Santa (the perfect photo opportunity for the grown-ups to get some fabulous images to keep and to share).

Suitable for children aged 2 to 10 years. Buy tickets online at our website NOW, but be quick as this event sells out every year so be sure to get your tickets as places are limited for each event! Choose from 10.00am, 11.15am, 12.45pm, 2.15pm and 3.30pm.

Prices range from £7.50 to £12.50 per child and in addition to the Santa Experience on Junior Farm also include full admission for the whole day to enjoy all the other activities and meet the friendly animals on Junior Farm. Discounts available for Season Ticket Holders and adults.

Magical Christmas Evening - Friday 30th November

Christmas is always a special time of year at Wroxham Barns and this year the fun starts with our Magical Christmas Evening on Friday 30th November 6pm-9pm with the official ‘switch on’ of the thousands of twinkling Christmas Lights.  We’ll have even more sparkle than ever before plus a stunning 15-foot Christmas Tree.   Don’t miss the countdown at 6.30pm – join Santa and his elves as he turns on the lights to start ‘The Magic of Christmas’.

Meet our REAL reindeer – they’ll be with us for one night only!  We’ll also be joined by Santa’s Elves who can tell the children (and the mums and dads) all about Elf College and our much-loved Santa Experience on Junior Farm which starts on 1st December.  Advance Tickets will be available to purchase (buy early as they’re always a sell-out).  Look out for Barny and Bella too and grab a “selfie” for the children with our popular Junior Farm mascots.

Listen – or even sing along – with all your favourite Christmas tunes from The Broadbeat Choir, always a great favourite with our visitors.

Enjoy a complimentary glass of mulled wine, canapés and mince pie on us or why not treat the family and join us in the Restaurant for a delicious meal. (Advance booking is essential). Head to The Farmyard Cafe for sweet treats, snacks and drinks.  Look out for our food tastings and special offers too.

Be sure to make time for some fabulously festive shopping – enjoy the ‘Uniquely Wroxham Barns’ experience in our shops and craft studios and find that special gift as well as picking up your favourite festive food, drinks and treats too.

To make this event extra special, entrance is by advance ticket only and tickets are available NOW on our website.  Tickets are £5 each and in return you’ll receive a FREE £5 voucher to spend anywhere on site at Wroxham Barns until 31st December 2018.  (Under 16’s free but do need their own ticket to guarantee admission to the event which can also be secured online).

So, make sure you put Friday 30th November into your diary, book your tickets here and come and get festive with us. It’s going to be magical.
