About the 2023 Father Christmas experience

Father Christmas and his team of industrious Elves have spent many years researching the science of giving and have made some incredible discoveries, which they're longing to share with you. This includes some extraordinary revelations about the magic of plants and their amazing abilities. 

You're invited to step into their enchanting log cabin inside our Dome tent for an intimate, behind-the-scenes look at where the Christmas magic happens.

What to expect

As part of this unforgettable 40 minute experience, each child will be given the chance to meet Father Christmas and leave with a gift they can grow for many years to come.
