Early Evening Wonderland

From: 13th Dec 2021

*NOW SOLD OUT*

Join us after dark this Christmas for an extra-special Woodland Wonderland experience.

When the Christmas lights are twinkling and Santa not only knows your name but also a little bit about you, Christmas can officially begin! From 4 to 6pm, Monday 13th to Friday 17th December, we are inviting just 20 famillies each evening to enjoy a personalised Santa experience and Christmas tea in our woodlands. (When you book tickets, you will be asked to select a time-slot - this is your time to see Santa, you are welcome to join us for the whole two hours).

When you book, we'll ask you to tell us the names and ages of your children, along with a little bit of information about them so that Santa can surprise them with his knowledge!

Tickets are limited to ten people in each transaction. To book more than ten tickets, please make multiple bookings. For group bookings and coach parking, please call us on 01509 852525.  

We're centrally located between Loughborough, Nottingham, Derby and Leicester - find us at LE12 6LU, ten minutes from the M1 motorway.
