Christmas At Stockwood - What Katy Said

Christmas At Stockwood

We’ve been very lucky to be able to go to a few Christmassy days out this year, the girls have absolutely loved it! This weekend we travelled a little way to visit Christmas at Stockwood, a festive adventure for kids.

We were given full tickets which allowed a visit to Santa, but you can buy a reduced ticket if you’d just like to take part in festive activities. At £6 a ticket it is a good day out (£4 extra to see Santa) for the family.

We arrived nice and early as our Santa time-slot was the first of the day.  There is a little show put on by some elves while you wait for Santa to arrive, with a singsong and interaction with the children. The curtain then pulls back to reveal Santa in his sleigh.

What I liked was the fact that not many people were allocated the same time-slot so there wasn’t too much of a wait while we queued to say hello. We were at the back of the line so had a bit of a wait but the elves came along and chatted with the girls while we waited.

We had a quick chat with Santa and then everyone was given a present – even baby as his ticket included a present from Santa at £4.

Writing to Santa at Stockwood

After our grotto visit we went to explore everywhere else. First stop was writing letters to Santa. Each child was given special paper, an envelope and a selection of stamps to use to decorate.

Next was making reindeer food – saved me doing it at home so I was glad of that! There are elves helping at every station so that is a nice touch.

There were a couple of craft activities set up in different rooms, one making snowmen and the other decorating gingerbread men.

Last but not least was a magic show from Krisgar – who quite frankly is brilliant. He had the adults laughing as well as having the children mesmerised! Gracie now wants a magic show for her next birthday. I couldn’t get photos with all of the other children around but he was definitely the highlight for me.

I vlogged our day out if you would like to see a few other bits from the day…

Overall a really fun experience and for the price I would definitely say it is worth it. I did feel at times that I wasn’t entirely sure what was happening when, so a program would have been helpful but the girls had a great day so that is the main thing isn’t it?

Have you been to see Santa this year?
