When Santa got stuck in the Garden at Ford Park

12 December @ 11:30 am - 3:00 pm

Join us for a 1hr Trail and Santa Experience at Ford Park
11th / 12th of December
Entry times every 15 minutes from 11:30am to 3pm
Did you know Santa is a keen gardener? You didn’t? Well, he is! He spends all year growing all the fantastic ingredients needed to make the very special food which the Sleigh Team feed to his Reindeers on Christmas Eve!  This food is really important as it makes sure the Reindeers have enough magic and strength to fly all the way around the world delivering presents to children in countries far and wide!
This year, some of his gardening didn’t quite go to plan, and he’s missing one, vital, very important ingredient … can you help him find it within the Ford Park Garden?
This experience will take a maximum of 1hr, meet the Garden Staff at the main park gates where you will be given an interactive trail map, and a series of tasks. Follow the trail around the park, completing a series of tasks as you go. You will work your way around the park before joining Santa in the main Ford Park garden for story time, and to complete the final task.
All attendees will have the opportunity to have a chat with Santa, and will leave with their own bag of reindeer food and some reindeer snacks (which they have made themselves!) to take away with them and sprinkle outside their houses on Christmas Eve so the Reindeers can keep their strength up (and magic up of course) on their giant Christmas Eve journey!
£6 per entry, under 3’s FREE and do not need a ticket. Tickets are none refundable once purchased and the event will go ahead in bad weather, please prepare to dress like a really great gardener in your wellies and waterproofs!
Any questions please contact us via the contact links at “Christmas at Ford Park” on Facebook, or via the “contact” option on your ticket confirmation. This event has been put together by Tiny Wild Fox and the team at Ford Park, for direct event enquiries head to tinywildfox.com.
