These early evening sessions are perfect for popping in to see Father Christmas after school or before dinner.

The Sunnycroft hall fire is lit and and the fairy lights are glowing making this a really magical time to visit the Sunnycroft bakery and the Man in Red.

Accessibility
Sunnycroft house is a small historic house and has three steps up to each doorway to enter or exit the event. This event is regrettably unsuitable for wheelchair or buggy access. There is no handrail at the entrance to the house. Inside, your visit is all on the ground floor of the house which is level. Seating is available if required around the house and when visiting with Father Christmas.
Other
Father Christmas tickets cost £15 per child and £5 per accompanying adult/person. Please select the appropriate ticket for the number of children and accompanying people. The max. group size is six people (adults or children) due to the size of the house. Please arrive no more than 10 - 15 minutes before your time slot as parking at Sunnycroft is limited. If you expect to need to use the toilet facilities before entry to the house or pay for additional tickets please account for this extra time between arrival and the start of your time slot. On arrival you will be guided to the back of the house where you will meet the baker. The house is 150 yards from the carpark, please give yourself time to get from the carpark to the house. Your visit should last around 20 - 30 minutes from arrival to leaving the Sunnycroft site. There is no catering available at Sunnycroft. We recommend making a day of it by also visiting Attingham Park: it’s a 15 - 20 min drive towards Shrewsbury. If you would like to visit the Attingham Mansion please also book a timed entry slot.
