Christmas Visits

Magical Christmas Visits At The Play Village

It’s our very first Christmas at The Play Village and we are truly excited to share our plans for the festive period with you all. We are huge lovers of Christmas and if we could bottle the bubbling excitement and wonderment of children we would. Using our play space, we will be creating a spellbinding and atmospheric Christmassy Play Village that helps build suspense and excitement for the Big Day. We hope that a visit to The Play Village adds to all the special things you do as a family to create treasured moments together at this time of year.

Below is a summary of the Christmas Events we will be offering from the last week of November through to the end of December with dates, times and prices. Santa Claus will be making 12 special visits throughout December with tonnes of festive fun in all our other play sessions.

Please Read Before Booking

To ensure all our guests have a wonderful festive experience at our Play Village we are operating a strict limit of guests during each session. We do already limit the number of children playing, and over the festive period we will need to limit the number of accompanying adults.

Every child ticket purchased will admit one accompanying adult and 2 babies & crawlers for free. There will be a limited number of additional adult tickets available for purchase. To guarantee adult entry you may need to purchase an adult ticket. Once our sessions are full we will not be able to add adults to bookings.

If all our adult tickets are sold for a session, you will need to purchase a child ticket to ensure your admission as an adult. Admittance to the Village will be strictly by ticket only.
