The Paraffin Pixies Search for Santa

About The Paraffin Pixies Search for Santa

It's been a strange time for us all.....
... and continuing restrictions mean that dear old Santa still can't meet young visitors face-to-face inside his warm cottage. Undeterred, sensible Santa will now be welcoming visitors to his willow dome workshop, where he can have a good natter and a ho-ho-ho in the open air. The problem is that the location of Santa's workshop is top secret, and very few know the right path to take through the dark, dark, forest to reach it. You might get hopelessly lost if you don't have a helpful guide.

Paraffin Pixies to the rescue:
Our old friends the Paraffin Pixies are here to help. The happy little creatures, who live inside old paraffin heaters, have expert knowledge of the secret ways through the woods that lead to Santa's workshop.

The Pixies will be your guide on a journey along magical illuminated trails that wind among the trees and fields. In the dark of a winter evening, you’ll encounter fantastical sights and spectacular lights. Within this world of wonder, you’ll see preparations being made for the best Christmas ever. You may bump into some of Santa’s helpers, and his faithful reindeer may be nibbling away in the moonlight. You might even have opportunity a quick chat to the dear old chap himself, as his happy team work through the night to prepare for a perfect Christmas day.

Awesome lights and sounds will also transform our giant covered play-space into a winter dreamland, while the big spaces of the orchard barn will be filled with twinkling lights, tasty delights and happy Christmas cheer, ensuring that the fun goes on no matter the weather.

Dates: 10th - 12th Dec, 17th - 19th & 23rd December
Tickets must be booked in advance
