Children's Events

We regularly hold children’s events throughout the year to coincide with most of the school holidays.

All tickets can be purchased at the tills or by phone on 01245 320314. Tickets do sell quickly, so the early bird catches the worm!

Here are just some of the events that will be taking place in 2017:

Go on a magical journey with the Elves and St Nicholas in our German Market inspired workshop.  Here you'll learn how to make a real fir table -centre for Christmas, make and decorate special elf boots for St Nicholas to fill with chocolate and listen to the story of St Nicholas. When St Nick comes to say hello, we'll learn who made the nice list and then enjoy a lovely breakfast of sausage hot-dogs or hand-made waffles topped with treats or an afternoon light tea of the same.  All led by the mischevious Meadow Croft Elves.
