Storytime with Father Christmas at Chatsworth

Enjoy a magical family visit to listen to Father Christmas. Includes entry to the farmyard and playground.


2nd December 2023 - 23rd December 2023 10:15 am - 4:15 pm

Father Christmas will captivate little ears with the story of the first Christmas. Children will then be able to help our elves make some reindeer food and receive a small gift to take home and enjoy.

Event details

Saturdays and Sundays from 2 to 23 December, and Friday 22 December

Session times: 10.15am, 11am, 11.45am, 12.30pm, 2pm, 2.45pm, 3.30pm & 4.15pm

Includes entrance to the farmyard and playground, Father Christmas storytime, a craft activity with our elves, a gift to take home for children and a hot drink for adults. Gifts are suitable for ages up to 11.

Quiet session

On Sunday 3 December and Friday 22 December at 4.15pm we will be offering a quieter session of our Storytime with Father Christmas event, which will deliver the same magical experience in a more relaxed environment. Fewer tickets are available so we're able to offer more support to individual children, and background music and lighting levels will be reduced.

All children ages 0 to 16 must book tickets for this event and must be accompanied by an adult.

£16 per child | £12 per adult
