This December, the sound of sleigh bells will once again ring through Tapnell Farm Park, as Santa Claus (and a selection of his friends) will be in residence for some festive farm fun.

After the sell-out success of last year, Santa will once again be bringing two REAL reindeer to hang out at Tapnell, to take a quick break before they head off on their epic journey around the world on Christmas Eve. He will also be visiting with some different friends on other weekends in December, including Mrs Claus, his Elves, and an unexpected assistant – the usually grumpy, and especially naughty, Mr Grinch!

The Grinch will join Santa on Saturday 15th December and Sunday 16th December, to lend a helping hand when he opens his Christmas grotto for the first time – what could possibly go wrong?! The grotto will then reopen the following week with Santa and his REAL reindeer from Friday 21st December to Sunday 23rd December.

Spaces to visit Santa’s grotto and the reindeer are strictly limited, and we be splitting visitors into small groups to make the experience as magical as possible. Tickets to visit Santa’s grotto and his special guests must be booked in advance and can only be booked as part of a visit to Tapnell Farm Park.

Each group carries a maximum of 12 children, with up to 2 accompanying adults per child. We will also be offering a limited number of autism-friendly sessions on Friday 21st December - more info down the page.

Christmas Lights Switch On & Christmas Craft Weekend

Also in December, Santa will be making a special appearance to turn on our Christmas lights. The big Christmas light switch-on will be on Saturday 1st December, with a rumoured appearance from one of his other “special guests”. Santa will then take a break from the Park until the grotto opens, whilst his Elves will be on hand with free Christmas Craft sessions on Saturday 8th December and Sunday 9th December. They will be sharing some of their North Pole knowledge with the children, demonstrating how to create festive cards and treats.

Autism Friendly Sessions

On Friday the 21st December, we will have several Autism Friendly Grotto Sessions for Santa and his REAL Reindeer.

Children and their adults will be escorted by the elves to meet Santa and the Reindeer in very small groups (6 children max). Music will be quieter, and Santa and his Elves will be prepped ready to give a warm welcome.
