We are thrilled to reveal our fantastical theatrical experience written and produced especially for Craigies – Santa and the Christmas Bear.
Creating an unforgettable family experience is what we set out to achieve and with the help of an award-winning Santa theatre company and their team of professional actors they will bring the enchanting story to life. Take it from us, it is filled with fun and magic for the whole family!
The Santa and the Christmas Bear festive family experience will run every weekend from 3 – 23 December at Little Farmers. Visitors will embark on an immersive festive adventure, journeying through three magical mini-Christmas wonderlands filled with little surprises along the way!
In this panto-style experience, children will be captivated by theatrics, fun storytelling and rhyming elements. They will meet Mrs Claus and a cheeky elf named Splatz, who need help creating a special gift to thank Santa for his hard work delivering presents around the world. Of course, Father Christmas makes an appearance too!
Our interactive event also includes a 1.5-hour play session at Little Farmers adventure farm park, and children will choose a special early Christmas gift from Santa himself to take home.
Santa and the Christmas Bear runs from 3 – 23 December and tickets are now on sale! Book your tickets here.
Words from our founder John Sinclair:
“Christmas is all about spending time with family and having fun together. The festive experience at Craigies Farm does just that with a focus on quality and good value.
“Our Santa and the Christmas Bear event has been designed by theatre professionals for both kids and grownups so everyone can enjoy some much-needed escapism, have a laugh and make unforgettable memories.
“We have frozen the cost at last year’s prices to help those saving for the big day, with kids aged 12 months and younger going free.”
Christmas at Craigies
Families can enjoy an array of festivities at our farm this year. As always, Dalmeny Christmas Trees will be based on-site, so visitors can come down and choose their own tree – Craigies’ carol singers will make the experience even more magical!
Families can recreate their own nativity scene with a visit to the animal fields and meet some of our animals, including horses, pygmy goats and highland cows. Those in favour of home comforts and more plush surroundings can retreat to the newly-refurbished Craigies Café for a hearty scran and enjoy Craigies festive menu, looking out over the winter wonderland from indoors!
