Festive Fairytales With Father Christmas!

Upon moving from Tier 2 into Tier 3 under the stricter government guidelines effective from today, it has become apparent that we are unable to completely fulfil the Odds Farm Park experience that you know and love.

It is therefore with a very heavy heart that we have to announce, that we will be temporarily closing our doors at Odds Farm Park from tonight Saturday 19th December 2020, with a look to re-opening on the 7th January 2021. READ MORE

Odds Farm Park has been sprinkled with even more Christmas magic, and again this festive season we will be joined by a very special guest!

Snuggle down with your loved ones and be transported to a magical world of merriment and yuletide wonder, as Father Christmas treats you to tales full of Christmas adventure and festive frivolities.

Father Christmas invites you to join him and his Elves for an enchanting, and socially distanced, group story-time. After meeting Father Christmas and stopping for a festive photo keepsake, you will take a magical stroll deep into the sparkly, wintery Enchanted Woodland, to arrive at the North Pole, with a stop at The Toyshop on the way!

Make sure to come prepared in your festive winter warmers!

Once Upon A Christmas will be a covid-secure experience, and through meeting all necessary social distancing and ventilation requirements, guests must come prepared for an outdoor wintery experience.

Give your family an experience to treasure and enjoy this truly special story-time with Father Christmas this season!
