Father Christmas at the Farm
Saturday 29 November 2014 to Sunday 21 December 2014
Bring the family down to Tatton’s Farm to greet Father Christmas and his rare breed farmyard friends, some of whom are the star attractions in the nativity scene. Once the children have received their free gift from Father Christmas there is so much to keep them occupied :- an outdoor play trail and den-building area, an indoor playbarn with ride-on tractors and music from brass bands or choirs. Families will love milking the wooden cow in the shippon, story-telling and visiting Aunt Mary in her cottage. Meet our reindeer Prancer and Dancer : Prancer is part of our animal adoption scheme, which would be a great gift for any member of the family. Visit the Farm on Saturdays and Sundays from 29th November until 21st December. Adult £6, Child £5 (includes a gift from Father Christmas).
