This notice tells you about the Santa Special Event,

how to book a ticket and about your visit to Santa at S.C.M.E.S


We would like to offer our traditional Santa Special. We have made some slight changes to the way we operate this year but hope to make your visit just as enjoyable as normal.


This event is for children under the age of 10 to visit Santa.


This event is held over two days 11th & 12th December 2021.


This is a ticket only event and ALL the members of the family visiting must have a valid ticket. Ticket holders must present their tickets on entry at the main gate. You can either print your ticket or present a digital version at the gate for entry to our event.

Ticket Types


Child No Santa age 10+

Child + Santa Visit


​We have several time slots during the afternoon. Please select a time and book one ticket per child who wishes to visit Santa and receive a present.


When buying a ticket from our website please note, although you can buy more than 5 tickets for children who wish to see Santa, our registration page only allows for 5 children / age group choices. If you require more than 5, please make an additional booking per child. You must also book adult tickets and child tickets (aged 10+) for anyone else who will be visiting the event. 


​This year, as a precaution, Santa has requested that he is not overcrowded in the grotto. Therefore, we are limiting the number in the Grotto to a maximum of 4 guests at any one time. This could be at least 1 adult and up to 3 children, or 2 Adults 2 children etc. If there are more in your party, we suggest you split the group into smaller groups of 4 to help with the visit. Other members of the family will still be able to see Santa from behind a screen by the front doors.


Unlimited train rides for all while the event is on.

A free mulled wine and a mince pie for all the parents.

Hot and cold drinks and light refreshments will also be on sale.


When visiting Santa this year please be aware the government have currently relaxed the rules on COVID, however, we will apply any regulations that are in force at the time of our event.  We may have to change the way you see / visit Santa. We would like to remind you to maintain social distancing and wear masks whenever necessary. Hand sanitizer will be available for use at various locations.


Please arrive approximately half an hour before your chosen allocated time slot for your child to visit Santa. Line up at the Santa Station where you will be booked in and then depart by train around to Santa’s Grotto.

​Car Parking for this event is in a field just past the Holy Bush pub. This is managed by our members while the event is going on. See our car park map

Please DO NOT park in the Holly Bush Pub car park.

Limited disabled parking spaces on site are available upon request. see above URL.


In the event that we are unable to operate the Santa Specials due to weather or other reasons we will endeavour to operate the following weekend. We hope to notify any visitor by email but please keep an eye on the website calendar for any last-minute changes.


Please also look back here at least one week before the event to see if we have had to make changes to this policy on the day of running this event.


​We all hope you come along and enjoy yourselves this festive season.


Looking forward to seeing you there!
