We very much regret to announce that we will not be going ahead with Santa Specials this year. In view of the ongoing Covid-19 situation, the safety of our visitors, volunteers and staff must be our top priority. We also feel, given the restrictions we now find ourselves operating under, that we are unable to offer the same magical experience as in previous years. We realise that this decision will be disappointing for our visitors, but in the circumstances, we feel it is the right thing to do. 

We thank you for your understanding and support at this time and look forward to seeing you next year when we hope to be back even bigger and better than ever!'
