SANTA FLIES INTO WELFORD
We have our very special visitor to Welford Christmas Tree Farm yet again! The elves tell us that Father Christmas will be flying over Leicestershire into Northamptonshire before finally dropping in to visit us at the farm where he will distribute his presents in our very own charity grotto!
...And in 2017 we have some very important changes...

 

>>> PLEASE READ: IMPORTANT CHANGES TO SANTA FOR 2017 <<<


Santa's Grotto: Due to being so popular last year we have decided to change to a Ticket Only System to see Santa in his Magical Charity Grotto. This is avoid the 3 hour queues we have had in the past resulting in very cold children and parents. Tickets will go on sale on the 18th of November from 9am by calling the farm on 01858 657008 or by visiting our festive shop on the farm in person - these will be on a strictly first come first served basis - tickets cost £5 per child and will need to be paid for over the phone. As always all profits will go to charity. Families & friends can see Santa together if they wish. We can fit a maximum of 6 people in the grotto at any one time.

Santa's Grotto Dates: December Saturday & Sunday 2nd/3rd, 9th/10th & 16th/17th - time slots are available from 1-2.30pm & 2.45-4.15pm PLUS Wednesday 6th & 13th - 4-6pm*

Meet & Greet Santa: As tickets to see Santa in his Grotto are limited, we will also be holding our hugely popular 'Meet & Greet Santa' sessions throughout the afternoon, where he will wander around the farm. For a small donation in his charity tin your child can have a photo taken with him and be given a bag of sweets or small gift. This worked especially well for those children who are perhaps a little too nervous to see Santa on their own in the grotto.

Meet & Greet Santa Date: December Saturday & Sunday 2nd/3rd, 9th/10th & 16th/17th - 15 minute sessions from 12.45-1pm, 2.30-2.45pm & 4.15-4.30pm*

*Please note times are approximate so please be patient with Santa - he's a busy man and will not rush the children!


ALL FOR A GOOD CAUSE...
All profits from our grotto are given to charity - This year the money will be split between 'Leicesters Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre' and 'Creaton Save Our Shop Campaign'. Last year we raised an amazing £200 for Multiple Sclerosis and £200 for The Donkey Sanctury from our Santas Grotto! So thank you to everyone who visited him last year.

Plus we also raised an additional £443.36p for the Multiple Sclerosis Society via the donation tins we have on site making it a whopping total of £643.36p. This charity is one very close to our hearts, so thank you to all who donated.

THE FESTIVE CHOIR
We will also be having our lovely Choir Singers back again helping to make the farm feel extra Chrismtasy. Saturday the 9th & Sunday the 10th of December 2-3.30pm

THE NASEBY BAND
We are also very lucky to have The Naseby Band back for their second year to get everyone into the festive mood. Sunday the 3rd of December 1.45-3pm

Friendly Farm Animals

Our friendly farm animals are always a real hit with children (and adults!), we have;  pigs, goats, calves, turkeys ....and of course Eddie our 3 legged wonder dog! So come and give then a friendly pat, its free! But remember to bring along a carrot or 2.

This year we have the return of our extra special visitors - Santa's Magical Reindeer - who will be with us from the Saturday 25th of November right up until Thursday the 21st December! We are very excited!!! We even have some more 'Magic Moss' on sale so you can feed them by hand and help boost their magical flying powers - only £1 per cup from our festive shop!



FREE ARTS & CRAFT AREA
We also have our little Arts & Craft area back again where the children can get into the Christmas mood by making cards, decorations, write letters to Santa or complete our Christmas Quiz with a chance of winning a prize! It is open every day and whats more... is FREE!

NEW FOR 2017: GO ON A MAGICAL ELF HUNT!
