Friday 1st December-Friday 22nd December: Seeking Santa Experience

Santa’s feeling sad – he’s got the blues, and we need you to come along and tell him your best jokes to make him giggle again. He will be in his magical winter wonderland grotto at Alderford from 1st December to 22nd December, and you can book in to see him at the café on 01948 665914.  He will be available every day from 9am – see his schedule below – so your family can have a special personal audience to tell him your wishes.  But the jokes must come first. Prices range from £45 to £65 per family.  There are some special candlelit sessions available (Santa’s has agreed to forego his tea on these evenings!)
