The Santa Experience returns!

We are delighted to bring this sell-out event back and have an all new format for this year's show.

Add some magic to your Christmas with a visit to Santa and his elves at Archerfield Walled Garden. Come and hear all about Santa’s Christmas preparations at this charming winter experience which takes place by Santa’s Sorting Office.

Santa will tell a short group story before inviting family groups into his Sorting Office to meet him individually and giving them a gift.

Santa’s custom-built wooden Sorting Office and set has been designed by our friends and long time event partners Rogue Village - the creative thinkers behind A Christmas Fairy Trail, Hobo Cinema and Canteen Street Food Festival.

This is an outdoor event which takes place under the shelter of our courtyard barn. We will be making it as cosy as we can but please remember to wrap up.

Santa can’t wait to meet you.
