Festive Fairytales With Father Christmas!

1st – 24th December 2021

Important Notice

We encourage guests to continue to wear a face covering in all indoor areas.

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 group story-time. After seeing 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!

*Extra charge applies for photography prints

When making your ticket booking, you will be asked to book an Admission Arrival Time session. 

These sessions last for 15 minutes each, and you can arrive at the time Farm Park any time during this session. For example, if you have booked the 9:15am session, you are welcome to arrive between 9:15am and 9:29am at Odds Farm Park.

Your Once Upon A Christmas experience will start 30 minutes after your arrival time session has ended. 

For example, if you have booked the 9:15am to 9:30am Arrival Time Session, your Once Upon A Christmas experience will start at 10:00am.

To ensure all guests have enough time to enjoy the Farm Park, all visitors with admission arrival times after 2.15pm will be able to enter the Farm Park from 2.00pm (however, their Once Upon A Christmas experience will still start 45 minutes after their booked admission arrival time).

After your Once Upon A Christmas experience is complete, you are welcome to stay at the Farm Park until our close at 17:30
