About our Father Christmas experience

Father and Mother Christmas and their elves have set up camp at the Eden Project in their cosy grotto, complete with a roaring fire. There are letters to sort, presents to deliver, and a very important sleigh to prepare. Father Christmas and Mother Christmas are keen to meet you and your children, so they can help. It's all part of our Festival of Christmas this year. 

About the prize

One lucky winner will win an exclusive meet and greet for their family with Father and Mother Christmas and their elves on Thursday 19 December, with free entry to our Festival of Christmas and Father Christmas experience, plus mince pies all round.

Here's what will happen on the day:

You'll enjoy free entry to the Eden Project (from 9.30am), where you can get into the festive swing with our Festival of Christmas – including live music from 5pm, plus lots to explore during the day. At 7.30pm you’ll get to take part in our Father Christmas experience alongside lots of other families who are getting ready for the big day, followed by exclusive time* beside the toasty fire with Father and Mother Christmas and their elves, sharing mince pies – the perfect photo opportunity!
