Two enchanting family Christmas shows will take place throughout the day:

The Frosty Tales Show in the cosy barn will feature everyone’s favourite Snow Sisters as they take you on a frosty adventure! 

The Snow Sisters will be joined by the Ice Harvester and their very special snowy friend.

Christmas really IS the most wonderful time of the year so join the Elves for the Merry Messenger Show in the heart of the forest for a Christmas Tale of delight and wonder! Featuring Christmas songs, Mrs. Christmas and the Nutcracker!

The Birds of Prey Shows will take place at 12 noon and 3 pm daily.
