Santa Spectacular at Willows Activity Farm

Visiting Santa is a family tradition we look forward to every year! It wouldn’t be Christmas without having a chat with the man in red suit and telling him little man’s wishes.

We were delighted to visit Willows Activity Farm during Santa Spectacular. We all had an amazing day, filled with festive fun, entertainment and adventure play!

I asked little man what his favourite part of the day was and he said he enjoyed every single minute of it. From watching the new 3D film Sleigh Ride to making his own husky dog in Create a Cuddle. As a parent, I love the fact everything is included in the ticket price, so there are no surprises.

Visiting Santa in his grotto was truly special, Santa was patient and asked little man several questions.  During our journey, we thoroughly enjoyed the sparkling scenes inspired by fairytales, winter wonderland and Christmas characters.

At the end of the visit, Santa gave a golden key to little man, which he used to unlock Santa’s Toy Shop and choose any gift he wanted.

There was so much to choose from, little man was spoiled by choice!

 The elves around Willows were very keen to pose for photographs and sign little man’s Elf passport.

Little man really enjoyed completing the Elf passport to become a Willows elf and claiming his magic reindeer dust by completing the Reindeer Hunt around Willows Farm.

Our next stop was the Create-a-Cuddle workshop, where little ones can make their own husky dog inspired by Mischka. You can also meet Mischka throughout the day.

As little man was having fun at Woolly Jumpers indoor play barn, he met two elves, which invited him to go to Elf school.

Little man was really excited, even more when he was asked to go to stage while the elves were teaching the Elf-abet.

Willows’ programme is fun-filled with festive activities such as arts and crafts and Santa letter writing, festive wood tractor ride, nativity story, magical ice rink, meet the reindeer, sing-a-long with Ronnie the Reindeer and Christmas funfairs.  The usual activities are also available throughout the day, such as Cotton-tail village, the Farmyard, Peter Rabbit adventure playground, JCB young drivers zone, tree house adventure and Peter Rabbit woodland play trail.

We absolutely loved visiting Santa Spectacular at Willows, it was made even more special by the attentive staff which took the time to speak to little man and interact with him. A massive thank you to Willows!

Santa Spectacular is available until 24th December. For more information and to buy your tickets, please visit:
