This winter, Willows Activity Farm in St. Albans will once again be holding its magical Santa Spectacular.

Taking place from 22 November until 24 December, visiting families will be invited to enjoy one of the biggest festive experiences in Hertfordshire.

Get in out of the cold

To help keep little ones happy as the chilly weather sets in, Willows will be putting on plenty of indoor activities, including the synthetic ice rink, Christmas shows likes the Elf Sing-a-Long and Nativity performances featuring real farm animals! Animal lovers will also be delighted to meet Mischka, the beautiful Alaskan Malamute and – of course – Santa’s reindeer.

Fancy meeting the big man himself? Every child will have the chance to say hello to Santa in his festive grotto and receive a golden key to his Toy Shop. In here, children will be able to see all Santa’s presents, stacked from floor to ceiling, and choose one to take home.

Elves, tractor rides and cuddly toys

Kids and grown-ups will all be welcome at the Elf Academy, where you can learn the basics of how to be an elf from Santa’s expert elves, all the way from the North Pole. Also included in the entrance price is the Create-a-Cuddle workshop, which allows little ones to make their very own reindeer cuddly toy.

The popular Willows 3D film will be back for another year, with children being whisked off into the skies on an adventure with Santa. Tristan the Runaway Tractor will also be on hand to take visitors on a real life magical ride in the Willows festive wood.

Peter Rabbit Adventure Playground™ will be open every day throughout Santa Spectacular, and Peter Rabbit will be around for meet and greets at selected times.

All-inclusive price

Christmas can be an expensive time, so its good to know that all the activities at Willows are included in the entry price, without any of the annoying extra charges throughout the day. Discounted tickets can also be purchased online in advance at
