Early booking for Father Christmas is essential. Please arrive 15 minutes before your time slot to allow enough time to get to the Castle. Normal admission applies. If there is adverse weather (wind speeds over 50mph or ice/snow) the Castle will be closed and Father Christmas will be cancelled. We will contact you to let you know the morning of your booking and you will be refunded for your session. Please always check the MET office forecast before travelling. Father Christmas sessions are for groups of up to 16 children accompanied by up to 2 adult per family due to space limitations in the room. Sessions run for approximately 30 minutes. Please note this is a ticketed event you will need a ticket per child. Father Christmas sessions include a story with one of the elves, an audience with the man himself and one gift (not wrapped).
