Tickets available for Friday 18 Dec only, all other dates sold out.

Experience the magic of Christmas at Marks Hall Estate. Join your elfin guide as they take you on a journey to find Father Christmas. You’ll meet his festive friends as you walk around the Arboretum - can you help the drummer boy find his drums? The fairy has lost her magical sparkle, can you help? And the snowman needs you to light the way. Then it’s time to meet the man himself. Enter our evergreen glade, decorated with twinkly lights and colourful trees, and listen as Father Christmas reads you and your new friends a yuletide tale, straight from the North Pole. A special gift awaits, just for you.

But wait! That’s not all, step into our festive garden and help Father Christmas find his reindeer in time for the big day - a tasty gingerbread treat will be your reward. Make a Christmas decoration in our pop-up workshop to take home.

Sessions run throughout the day, 10am – 4pm. On arrival, please park at the Visitor Centre car park where you'll be met by our festive elves to begin your experience.
