SEN Forest Father Christmas Experience 2019

Come and meet Father Christmas in this specially designed event for children with SEN

  • Booking essential
  • Admission applies

Meet Father Christmas and his elves at Hatfield Forest. This event will have no loud music and less children, more helpers and a very relaxed feel. Your child can go and see Father Christmas or just collect a gift from a helpful Elf, make a tree decoration and finish with a hot chocolate and toasting marshmallows under the stars. If you would like pictures of where the event takes place to familiarise your child these will be available on request.

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.

Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00

 

*Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

Please note...

National Trust members park for free.

Car Parking: cars £8, minibuses £10, coaches £25, please pay at kiosk or pay and display machine.
