All day

Christmas comes early this year at Godstone Farm, and families are cordially invited to a festive extravaganza like no other! Godstone Farm welcomes all to immerse themselves in the spirit of Christmas with a magical visit to Father Christmas, accompanied by a heartwarming live theatrical experience by the Unusual Theatre, entitled 'Twas the Night Before Christmas.

**New for 2023: 'Twas the Night Before Christmas!**

In the festive season filled with joy and wonder, Godstone Farm introduces an exciting new addition to its Christmas celebrations. 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, is a live theatrical experience by the Unusual Theatre Company, and promises to enchant audiences of all ages. Based on the cherished poem of the same name, this fantastically festive family show will transport attendees into the heart of a living Christmas tale. Performances are scheduled at 11am, 1pm, 2pm, and 3pm on the day of the visit, with each show lasting approximately 20 minutes in the old play barn, close to the ponds.

**Daytime Father Christmas Visits:**

Daytime Father Christmas tickets include entry to the farm for an entire day of fun, complete with access to the farm's huge new Play Barn. The Father Christmas visit is scheduled at Elf Check-In, and here, families will step through the elf-door and embark on an unforgettable journey filled with enchantment and joy. Guests will have the opportunity to meet the industrious and friendly elves, explore a magical Christmas Toy Shop, and select a special gift to cherish. As an additional treat, visitors can decorate their very own festive delight!

**Dive into the Enchantment of Dusk Visits:**

With a Dusk visit, families gain access to Godstone Farm after its regular closing time. This exclusive experience ensures an enchanting adventure, beginning with a warm welcome from Father Christmas’s friendly elves and culminating in a special meeting with the big man himself. After this magical encounter, guests are invited to explore the Christmas Toy Shop and select a cherished gift to remember the visit by. To ensure a seamless experience, visitors are asked to arrive at Elf Check-In 5 minutes before their scheduled ticket time. Please note that a Dusk visit does not include daytime farm entry, and it does not grant admission to our Christmas Show. However, the experience promises to be a magical journey through the Christmas spirit, perfect for families looking to make memories in a quieter and more intimate setting.

Nicola Henderson, CEO of Godstone Farm comments: “The sound of sleigh-bells are set to fill the air at Godstone Farm again this year as we pull out all the stops to help families to create lasting memories with a visit to Father Christmas, ahead of the big day. Whilst our Toy Shop is a firm favourite year on year, where little ones can choose their own gift, we also wanted to help families soak up the festive atmosphere, and savour quality time with loved ones, with our first-ever live theatre show. We cannot wait!”
