Santa Spectacular

23rd November - 24th December

We recommend booking your Santa Spectacular tickets in advance to avoid disappointment. Our prices vary depending on which day you visit. All online tickets must be purchased up to midnight before the day of visit.

The Santa Spectacular programme is a full day out of festive family fun and the child ticket price includes all the activities and shows plus a visit to Santa and being able to choose a gift from his Toy Shop, making a toy bear in the Create-a-Character workshop and biscuit decorating. Under 2’s can go free but paying under 2’s visit Santa, do the Create-a-Cuddle workshop and biscuit decorating.

For every Santa Spectacular child ticket purchase we will plant a tree. The tree will be planted in a tropical forest via TreeSisters who currently fund nine tree planting projects across the world. Trees grow quickly in tropical forests and you will have helped to make a positive impact on our world and planetary care.

Willows Activity Farm Members Top-up

Members do not need to book in advance and can pay on the day for their top up.

The child member top up is £17.00 (same as last year) and adult members will continue to come in free.

Members can also visit Willows and not do the extra activities (Santa, Create-a-Cuddle and biscuit decorating) for no child member top up rate.


Do we need to book advance tickets for Santa Spectacular?

We recommend booking online so that you can guarantee the day you want to visit and receive an online discount for booking in advance (up to midnight before the date of visit).

Can you buy tickets on the day for Santa Spectacular?

There are on the day tickets available at admissions every day but these are not discounted.

What time do you open?

We open from 10.00am every day during Santa Spectacular. We open at 9.00am on the following dates
21st-24th December.

What is included in the Santa Spectacular ticket?

The Santa Spectacular ticket includes all of the activities on the Santa Spectacular programme, there is no extra charge for any of these activities. Please note that on certain dates some activities will run to timed sessions such as the skating on the synthetic ice rink. Please check the programme before your visit for all of our times.

Your Santa Spectacular ticket also gives admission to all the usual areas of the farm such as our Farmyard, the Peter Rabbit Adventure Playground, Mr Tod’s Lair, Super Secret Squirrel Nutkin Test and Cotton-Tail Village.

Peter Rabbit and Lily Bobtail will appear in shows and Meet & Greets every day and on weekends and 23rd and 24th December Benjamin Bunny will also appear. We do recommend heading to the Meet and Greets early as on our busier days we cannot guarantee every child will be able to meet the character but we do our best within the 25 minute Meet and Greet slot.

The only activity which isn’t included in the Santa Spectacular ticket is our Meet Mischka VIP and Farm Sled Ride. This is a separate ticket and needs to be booked ahead as there are only two timeslots per day. More details can be found here.

Do Under 2’s need a ticket?

There is a charge for Under 2’s who want to meet Father Christmas and choose a toy from his Toy Shop, make a soft toy in the Create-a-Cuddle Workshop and do gingerbread decorating.

If your under 2 will not be taking part in those activities they are free of charge. Babes in arms can still go into the Grotto with older siblings but will not be able to choose a toy from the Toy Shop.

Do we receive a timeslot to meet Santa?

We do not run timeslots for meeting Santa. However, Santa does not leave Willows Activity Farm without meeting every child who has a Santa Spectacular ticket. Our Grotto is open from 10am daily and on certain dates we open our doors at 9am so you can be first in line.

We do recommend you take our elves advice on the day and if the line is long to see Santa then come back later on in the day when it isn’t as long. There are plenty of activities running all day to keep everyone entertained.

I’m a Willows member do I have to pay extra to visit during Santa Spectacular?

Willows members can continue to visit Willows and enjoy the activities as part of their Willows membership (except visiting Santa, Create-a-Cuddle and gingerbread decorating). However, if a child member wants to visit Santa and receive a toy from his Toy Shop, take part in the Create-a-Cuddle workshop and gingerbread decorating there is a £17 top up fee per child. Adult members do not need to pay additional fees.

Will Peter Rabbit and his friends feature at Santa Spectacular?

The Peter Rabbit Adventure Playground, Mr Tod’s Lair, Super Secret Squirrel Nutkin Test and Cotton-tail Village are open every day of the year and included in your Santa Spectacular ticket.

Peter Rabbit will feature in a new seasonal singalong show every day and a Meet and Greet, both of which are included in the Santa Spectacular programme.

Do we have to pay for a photo with Santa?

Our professional photographer elves will be with Santa in his Grotto to take a photo of your child(ren) with Santa. These will be available to buy. We request that adults don’t take their own photos to ensure every child has lots of time to chat with Santa.

Do we have to pay to park our car?

The car parking facilities at Willows Activity Farm are free of charge.
