Airfield Estate Christmas Experience
THE TRUE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS
Selected dates from Saturday 23rd November - Sunday 23rd December 2019 at Airfield Estate.
The True Spirit of Christmas Past will be a seasonal experience that reflects the original values of Christmas - family, charity, goodwill and happiness - and embraces and encourages an environmentally friendly festive celebration.
You’ll get to immerse yourself in the festive atmosphere of the Log Cabin, where little ones will pen their postcard to Santa before strolling to the magnificent Airfield House festooned with traditional seasonal decor. Here they’ll whisper their hopes for Christmas morning to Airfield’s beloved Santa Claus, enjoy stories with the Elves and receive a sustainably sourced gift presented in a reusable cloth bag.
There’ll be time to take a photo with Santa before moving along to his Magical Alpine Potting Shed to plant a keepsake bulb in recycled paper using super-fuelled soil from the Estate’s recycled food waste. Little ones will take their handiwork home and watch as their plants grow and blossom.
The Elves’ Kitchen is where you’ll get to enjoy a fun-filled chocolate fondue and creamy Jersey milk and grown-ups will indulge in a delicious homemade chocolate treat and a mulled wine in the Claus Cafe.
Take a twirl on the Victorian carousel, enjoy face painting and arts and crafts, plus the chance to meet the Estate’s baby animals, plenty of family games to get the heart racing and all included in the ticket price.
Parents can choose to add a fabulous family photo on Santa’s Sleigh with life-size reindeer for a small charge and delicious Estate-bred hot dogs will be available to purchase from the Claus Grill.
With a strong emphasis on environmental awareness and sustainability, Airfield will work across the Estate to showcase a glorious green rustic-inspired Christmas that reduces the use of plastics and glitter, along with a reduction in store-bought decorations, a move to upcycling existing decorations and the use of natural decorative features.
