Christmas Visits

Magical Christmas Visits At The Play Village

We are excited to celebrate our 4th Christmas at The Play Village. We are beyond excited for Christmas visits to begin for 2021 and fill your little believer’s hearts with the wonderment of Christmas magic. Christmas for us is truly the most wonderful time of year as we dress and theme our beautiful play space in all things festive and sparkly to create a spellbinding and atmospheric Christmassy Play Village. A visit to our Play Village is sure to add to suspense and excitement of the Big Day, and we are always honoured to be part of the special things you do as a family at this time of year.  Thank you to all the families who now see a visit to us at Christmas as a festive tradition…that feels very special.

Please Read Before Booking

To ensure all guests have a wonderful festive experience at our Play Village we are operating a strict limit of guests during each session. We have always limited the number of children playing, and over the festive period this will make for a truly intimate family experience with Santa playing along throughout the festive play session.

Each booking is restricted to 6 guests with a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 2 adults and up to 5 children per booking.

Unfortunately, additional single adult tickets are not available to purchase. If you require more than two adults per booking you will need to make multiple bookings.

To guarantee entry, you will need to purchase a child ticket to ensure admission as an adult. Admittance to the Village will be strictly by ticket only.

Please ensure you have read our Ticket Entry Terms & Conditions prior to booking.

Our Christmas Visits For 2021

Below is a summary of the Christmas Events we will be offering throughout December with dates, times and prices. Following the success and quick sell out of visits from Santa Claus over the past three years, we have added more dates with Santa for 2021 so your little believers won’t miss out on spending the whole play session meeting Santa and playing along in all of the festive fun and activities we have planned.

The Princess’ Wish…The Tale of Santa & The Christmas Toy Soldier

The Magical Village Princess has a very special wish this Christmas – for her true love to be home in time for Christmas Day. The Princess makes the Villagers wishes come true all year long… but who can make The Princess’ wish come true? There is only one other person in the whole wide world who can grant the wish of the Magical Princess… Santa Claus…the master of all wish making.

Disheartened, she knows Santa Claus is busy with all his elves in the North Pole preparing to bring joy to children all over the world.  He couldn’t possibly help…could he? Very early one morning the Princess wakes to sound of Rudolph and Vixen’s bells getting louder and louder…could it be that Santa has heard her plea for help? With the help of our elves Berry & Sparkles and your little believers, Santa hatches a plan to make the Magical Village Princess’ dream come true and wastes no time granting all the wishes of his little helpers.

The Christmas visit with Santa will be a 2.5 hour long visit. Santa and the elves need all the help of the children to grant the Princess’ wish and bring festive cheer and spirit to her heart. The Magical Princess will illuminate the twinkling Village lights and the Christmas Tree star, and Santa will greet all children and families along with the Princess and his elves. Santa will invite all the children to join in for some festive songs and activities as the story of the Princess’ Wish…The Tale of Santa & The Christmas Toy Soldier unfolds and Christmas would not be the same without some songs and dancing. The session will close with a story from Santa in his sleigh with all children receiving a gift from Santa and plenty of opportunity throughout your visit to take a beautiful photograph to remember your visit.

Time Together After Christmas And New Year

It’s that time again… all the presents have been opened, the children have that beautiful glow of Christmas, bellies are full and only the rubbish chocolates are left in the tin. The festive fun isn’t over yet.  It’s time to venture out and have a change of scenery together, stretch the children’s legs and continue the perhaps more relaxed festive celebrations into the New Year.

Enjoy time together as a family in our beautifully decorated festive Play Village, continue the Christmas celebrations and share some quality time together during the Christmas holiday before the twinkly Christmas decorations come down and New Year’s resolutions begin.

Dates: 27th – 30th December & 2nd – 4th January

Time: 9.30am – 12pm / 12.30pm – 3pm / 3.30pm -6pm

Tickets for time after Christmas and New Year have not yet been released. We all appreciate that things can quickly change right now.  With this in mind, we are holding the release of our December & January school holiday tickets for a little while.  We will announce the release of these tickets via our social media pages and website.
