Crib, Rudolph, Mrs Claus & More

Why not come and enjoy a modern day live crib where children can get their photo taken as Mary and Joseph along with the donkey, sheep, goat and miniature pony. Not only that, but there will be real life deer on show as well for people to pet and smaller animals such as bunnies and chickens for people to hold. Once all of this has taken place, children will be invited to write their letters to Santa and post them in the magical north pole express post box.

Next on the list the children will get to see Santa Claus, where they can tell him whether they have been on the naughty or nice list and where they can get a picture taken with Santa himself and receive their very own wrapped gift. After each child has visited Santa, they will then be invited into Mrs Claus's kitchen, where each child will help Mrs Claus in the preparation of making ginger bread men. Once they have come out of the oven and cooled, each child will get to decorate their own individual gingerbread man and can either eat it themselves or hold on to it till Christmas eve, when Santa arrives as he loves gingerbread men. There shall be tea and coffee provided for the adults also.

A message from Santa

Be sure to bring in your Christmas letter when visiting me and my elves! I will be collecting all letters and taking them back to the North Pole with me. And if you have time pop into Mrs Claus kitchen and make your own cookie!
