Do you have what it takes to help Santa make Christmas happen? Join our enchanting festive event at Cannon Hall Farm – which brings the magic of Christmas alive with a brand-new enchanting festive experience.

For the third year running, we’ve teamed up with our amazing friends from Talegate Theatre Productions and the Copycat Party Company for an event that’s guaranteed to leave the whole family feeling full to the brim with Christmas spirit. 

Join Santa on a magical adventure in our staged show (in our indoor heated event space) before adventuring on to the Toy Factory where children take their magic key to the elves…and choose their very own present!

Cannon Hall Farm is known for its festive experiences and, following the success of last year’s show, we are back with a new story.

The Santa Apprentice – have you ever wondered how Santa’s elves know exactly what to do to get ready for Christmas? Delve into the centre of the action at ‘Santa’s School For Elf-ceptional Elves’ to meet Sugar and Spice, the latest recruits at the North Pole and experience this upbeat winter tale full of singing, dancing and magic.

You will be able to visit all your farm favourites from Cannon Hall Farm – including our reindeer Prince and Roger.

Our experience tickets include farm admission – including the indoor soft play – from your arrival time until closing, one Santa show session, access to the Toy Factory plus a gift for paying children.

Children under two go free to Cannon Hall Farm – but if you wish for them to have access to the workshop and choose a toy please select the correct ticket which has a charge. 

Don’t forget we close early on Christmas Eve at 3pm.

The time on your ticket is your arrival time – it is vital you pay close attention to both your arrival and show times or you could risk missing your Santa show.  Please note: this is a group experience and there is no one on one opportunity to see Santa.
