Leave all the stress of Christmas at home and join us for a day of festive fun with the whole family. Pick up some unique Christmas gifts, enjoy a delicious lunch, visit Santa and book tickets for our Christmas Panto – The Magic Castle. A wonderful day for the whole family.

Christmas Market
Browse local products and find that perfect gift for Christmas. There will be a great selection of stalls with products from jewelry to fabrics and from Christmas decorations to fudge and flowers. After some shopping, the little ones can burn off some energy on our bouncy castle or try the funfair games! Children can transform into an angel or a reindeer at the hands of our face painters and send grandma a picture of her favourite grandchildren. Get festive and make a hand-crafted X-mas decoration or meet the gorgeous Sandy Balls Alpacas!

Santa’s Grotto
Visit Santa and his helper in the magical Sandy Balls grotto. Let him know you’ve been good and give him your letter ready for Christmas Day. Santa’s helper will be able to help you write one. Each child will get a small present to start the festive season! Don’t forget to get a nice picture with Santa himself!
