Festive face painting
Storytime and gifts with Santa
Begin your Christmas experience by meeting Santa’s friendly elves for festive face painting before penning your festive wishes to Santa and posting to The North Pole.
You’ll then join Santa in the beautiful setting of Airfield House for magical story-time and handcrafted gifts which are presented in a reusable cloth sack.
The Elves will be waiting for you in their kitchen to decorate homemade, Estate cookies and serve up steaming cups of hot chocolate with festive toppings (or spiced winter warmer for the grown up’s!)
In the Christmas Craft Workshop, kids will roll up their sleeves and create their own unique, take-home holiday art piece.
Then it’s all aboard The North Pole Express for a blast of fresh-air and a special trip around Airfield Estate, keeping an eye out for our resident animals along the way.
This year we’re proudly supporting Team Hope and all families who attend The Christmas Experience and donate a new toy will receive a free family picture on Santa’s sleigh, capturing your precious memory of the day for years to come.
Adults attending The Christmas Experience will also receive a festive recipe card from Culinary Lead, Luke Matthews as well as a FREE return pass to visit Airfield Estate in the New Year.
