Meet Father Christmas

Our meet Father Christmas event is now fully booked.

  • Booking essential
  • Admission applies

Looking to create some special festive memories this year? Visit Father Christmas in his cosy Grotto, located in our historic Parsonage.

Once greeted by our friendly Christmas guides, you will spend time in Father Christmas' living room with our festive colouring activity.

One by one, each family will be called through to meet Father Christmas in his festive Grotto, where he'll check his list and present each child with a special gift. You will then have chance to capture your memory with a photograph before heading back into the Park to explore the rest of our Christmas experiences. Our guides will be happy to help you take the perfect photo!

Each child ticket admits one accompanying adult for free. Additional adult tickets can be purchased for £2.50 on the day as you enter the grotto. These additional tickets are available on a first come, first served capacity during each time slot due to room capacity and cannot be pre-booked.

Please arrive in plenty of time to book into your time slot. You must arrive at the beginning of your time slot e.g. if you have booked for 10:00 - 10:15, you must arrive for 10:00.

Father Christmas at Clumber Park is a special event and all visitors must purchase tickets as these are not included with your membership or admission to the Park and we ask that members scan their cards on entry as usual. For Non National trust Members normal admission charges apply
