Father Christmas in his magical stable grotto

Children and parents meet Father Christmas at Calke Abbey

Father Christmas will be spending some time in his magical stable grotto at Calke this year. Why not pay him a visit? If you've been good this year, he might even have an early Christmas present for you...

Father Christmas is a very busy man at this time of year, so you'll need to book online to make sure he's got a present ready for you.

Book your visit now!

Follow the link below to book your visit to see Father Christmas. Choose a date and time slot, then select a ticket for each child in your group.

Tickets cost £5 per child, which includes an early Christmas present (a customer booking fee of 5% applies).

The small print...

We have a limited number of tickets for each time slot – if you're struggling to book your time slot, there might not be enough tickets left to accomodate your group. In this case, try booking a different time slot, or book tickets in consecutive time slots.

If you have a large group visiting Father Christmas, we may ask you to go into the grotto in smaller groups – it's a magical stable grotto, but it can get quite busy in there! Due to limited space, you can take up to three accompanying adults in to see Father Christmas.
