IMPORTANT CHANGES FOR 2021
- BUY 1 TICKET PER FAMILY – NOT PER CHILD - Each tickets allow you to book up to 4 children, Eventbrite will charge you for a non-refundable deposit of £6 (plus Eventbrite booking fee). This is the equivalent price of a ingle child entry.
- STATE NAMES & AGES OF EACH CHILD – at the checkout state the name and ages of all the children visiting Santa.
- PAY BALANCE AT THE FARM – Families with more than one child will pay for the remining children on arrival at the farm.
What our customers say about Santa:
- NEW FOR 2021 - Payment - Payment will be taken for 1 ticket only at the time of the booking and the balance will be payable on arrival at the farm. We cannot take the full payment at the time of your booking due to the complex nature of our booking system. Unfortunately Eventbrite cannot accommodate the number of options we require.
- Time slot - Your Eventbrite "ticket" means you will be seen within a 30 minute time slot (for example: between 1pm - 1.30pm) and that you should be seen within that 30 minute period. We have found that trying to book specific time slots (for example 1.25pm) only disappoints the children and parents as some visits can take longer or less time than others.
- Timings - these are approximate, so please be patient if Santa does over run.
- Limited Numbers - We limit the number of bookings/families within each 30 minute time slot so that each family has a fair amount of time with Santa and are not rushed.
- Own Allocated Visit - Your visit will not be combined with any other families - you will have your own allocated visit with Santa. You are more than welcome to combine your visit with your own friends or family at the time of the booking. This can be particularly helpful if you have very shy children.
- Names & Ages of children - We need the names and ages of your children at the time of your booking as this helps the Elves on the day to ensure we have the age appropriate gifts and the right number of presents.
- Proof of Booking - Once you have made your booking you will need on the day of your visit or show via your phone as proof of your booking. You will need to present the ticket to one of our Elves (our staff!) and make the payment of £6 per child either by cash or card payment.
- Clothing - Please wear appropriate clothing and bring an umbrella if it is raining as there is no covered area outside the Grotto while waiting.
- Profits - all profits are donated to the Leicestershire Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre'.
