£20 per ticket which admits 1 child (aged 3 - 10) and 1 accompanying adult

A Christmas wish is the most powerful wish of the year and when little girl Holly wishes upon the ‘Christmas Star’, something magical happens.

The Christmas Fairy answers Holly’s wish and takes her on a fantastical festive adventure filled with fun and excitement.

Your children will be part of the adventure and will meet our Christmas characters along the way. Say hello to Jack Frost, The Nutcracker Soldier, Santa’s elf and Mrs. Claus as Holly goes in search of Father Christmas. But will she find him in time to give him her Christmas list or will it be too late?

This event is fully interactive and will have the children entertained as soon as they arrive. Let the children dance and sing along with our Christmas chorus as they perform a medley of festive favourites. Take part in an art and craft activity and be dazzled by our magical lantern parade. There will be music and dancing, games and prizes, live singing performances and party dances. There will be time for photos with our amazing Christmas characters and a very special appearance by a very special guest.

Your child will also receive a gift and party bag on leaving after our spectacular finale. Come dressed in your favourite festive fancy dress or your Christmas pyjamas.

£20 per ticket which admits 1 child (aged 3 – 10) and 1 accompanying adult
