Christmas is coming to Wild Place Project

Santa will be there from Saturday December 2 to Saturday December 23 to welcome children and their mums and dads.

By the time he leaves he will just have enough time to load up his sleigh and get ready to fly off on Christmas Eve night to deliver presents.
 
Santa can be found in a magical Christmas yurt, sponsored by Tockington Manor School, sitting in a big red armchair surrounded by fairy lights, cards and gifts.
 
It is the perfect place for children to meet him and whisper to him gifts they would like for Christmas.
 
There will also be a great opportunity for visiting children to meet Santa’s famous reindeer who will be near him each day.
 
People who visit Santa can also make the most of being at Wild Place Project for an early Christmas walk through the woods in the crisp December air.
 
As well as taking the opportunity to see the giraffe, lemurs, cheetah and zebra as Wild Place Project turns into a winter wonderland.
 
Those who want a tasty seasonal treat can head for the warmth of the Courtyard Café.
 
Nigel Simpson, head of operations at Wild Place Project, said: “The build-up to Christmas is always special here and it begins when Santa arrives.
 
“Seeing him in our Christmas yurt and meeting his reindeer together with the chance to see our animals and walk beneath the trees make for a perfect family treat.”
 

As part of the festive build-up Christmas trees will be on sale in the Wild Place Project car park from December 2. Prices start at £20 and threes will be on sale during Wild Place Project’s opening hours. The trees are high quality and fresh and customers do not need to purchase tickets for Wild Place Project to buy them.
