A Christmas Fairy Trail

About A Christmas Fairy Trail

Enter Archerfield Walled Garden’s mystical Fairy Trail and get lost in a world of fairies, forest folk and folklore. A beautifully ethereal world with surprises around every corner. Welcome to A Christmas Fairy Trail…

After the success of last year we are SO excited to bring A Christmas Fairy Trail back to Archerfield Walled Garden! But don't expect more of the same... we've gone much bigger for 2018 and you can expect a magical surprise around every corner!

When you arrive:
You'll begin your journey at our briefing zone, where you'll be given your own pair of headphones to listen to an introduction to this year's story from our intrepid woodland explorer, Gus. You'll take a leisurely stroll down towards the Fairy Trail through our magical willow world, lit up with lasers and shrouded in smoke. Expect to encounter our fire juggling gate keeper, friendly forest folk and lots of surprises on your way... look up and enjoy the illuminated skyline as you head towards the magic.

What to expect:
Once you enter the Fairy Trail you'll be transfixed by flying fairies dancing in the treetops, a glimmering meadow of thousands of lights and a woodland lit up with laser beams. Watch the aerial dancers and Fairy Blossom perform before giving a performance of your own at the Fairy Disco. When you're done with all that, join us at the fire pits for s'mores and surprises before warming up at our Hot & Hearty Food Bar where we're serving up comfort food classics, mulled wine, hot chocolate and sweet treats.

Back for 2018:
So many of you told us how much you loved Fairy Blossom last year... we're happy to say that she's returning this December! She's flying in to spend Christmas in her favourite place, dancing the night away with all of our lucky visitors; if you look up into the air you might even see some of her friends partying up above.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for A Christmas Fairy Trail are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
