Father Christmas is returning to his rightful place at Sacrewell this year-the Mill House. Having moved to the old farmhouse for a couple of years while work was being done to the 18th century grade II* listed building, the team says Father Christmas is looking forward to being back in his regular spot from 3 December-and this year the centre is offering Toddler Experiences too.
Engagement manager Jack Pishhorn said: “Our visitors have come to know and love seeing Father Christmas in the mill and he certainly enjoys being in there too. The event will be open for bookings only so that people are ensured a time slot and can plan their day out to Sacrewell.”
Tickets are available for the 3, 4, 10 and 11 December, and every day from 17 December until Christmas Eve, priced £11 per child (£6 for members and under twos) and £7 per adult (free for members). Entry includes a visit to Father Christmas and his reindeer (reindeer at weekends only) as well as admission to Sacrewell for the day. There will be plenty of other Christmas activities taking place across the site, such as wooden reindeer making, marshmallow toasting and the Christmas craft room where you can make gifts and cards. Surcharges may apply.
On December 3 Father Christmas will be welcomed to Sacrewell by the team and visitors via our special sleigh tractor at 10am outside of the visitor centre. Please come and welcome him, Mother Christmas and his reindeer to the farm!
Tickets for the Toddler Experience are priced £8 per child (£5 for members and under twos), £7 per adult (members free) and are available on 8, 9, 15 and 16 December with activities aimed at children pre-school age or younger and includes a free tractor sleigh ride.
Almost everything at Sacrewell is outside; you’ll want to come dressed for the weather!
When booking your tickets to see Father Christmas please give enough time before your timeslot to arrive at Sacrewell and find the watermill where Father Christmas will be waiting for you, we suggest arriving at least one hour before. Please be aware that there will be multiple children booked within each 30 minute slot – the timings simply allow us to manage the queue for you. Within the queue you will have the chance to meet the elves and Mother Christmas, as well as have a go at some great Christmas crafts whilst you wait.
