Sold out - A Quiet Visit with Father Christmas - Neurodiverse Friendly

Father Christmas will be returning to his grotto at Quarry Bank for a special quiet visit.

  • Booking essential

Christmas is for everyone, and this year we are delighted to offer neurodiverse friendly sessions to meet Father Christmas.

Attendees will experience a special 30-minute session including festive activities, crafts, the chance to meet Father Christmas and receive a gift.

These sessions will host fewer guests, no music will be played, with fewer people around. The relaxed atmosphere will give ticket holders the opportunity to explore as they'd like in their own time. These sessions are open to guests of any age who have additional needs.

Please purchase a Father Christmas ticket for each child/attendee that wishes to receive a gift.

Two adults/carers per family group permitted to attend with the ticket holder.

As part of the booking form there is an opportunity to share information about the needs of your group. Please do feel free to share anything you think would make your experience more enjoyable, although we may not be able to meet all needs/requirements.

Non-National Trust members do not need to purchase Quarry Bank admission tickets in order to attend this event. If however you wish to explore the buildings and gardens on your visit, then you will need to pay for admission at Visitor Reception.

National Trust admission charges do not apply.
