Father Christmas's hand holding on to a red sack with bells on it.

Extra times have now been released for Saturday 2 December. You can still book a relaxed visit with Father Christmas. Find out more about our relaxed sessions and book. 

We are delighted to have a special visitor to the museum this year – Father Christmas will be in residence for this weekend only!

Book in your spot to visit him in our weekend ‘Snug’ nestled within Oaklands Park which will be decorated as the perfect place for a festive selfie; he may even let you sit on his sleigh!

You will be captivated by his friendly Nordic elves who will greet you and guide you all the way to meet Father Christmas in his ‘Snug’.

Each child will receive a gift to take away plus an extra surprise. We think this will be popular so make sure you book early to avoid disappointment.

Upon booking, please let us know each child's name who will be attending and what gift they would like to receive. You have a choice between the teddy bear and penguin bowling set, as pictured below.

If your child(ren) would prefer a relaxed environment to enjoy their visit with Father Christmas, please book one of our relaxed sessions. These sessions will have quieter music, a brighter lit room and less festive lighting. Book a relaxed visit with Father Christmas.
