Christmas at Bocketts Farm

Enjoy a magical and festive family day out at Bocketts Farm including a visit to meet Father Christmas in his traditional workshop.

23rd November – 24th December 2023

Visiting Father Christmas

The experience begins as children hop on board the Santa Express trailer. Our elves then take you on a short journey to their traditional workshop. Next, you’ll be invited to meet Father Christmas in his magical grotto. Each child will receive a special golden coin to spend in his amazing toy shop, selecting the gift of their choice to take home! Before you leave you may like to purchase a professional photo or souvenir.
