Kelburn's utterly unique Santa's Secret Forest event returns for 2016 on the weekends of 3rd and 4th and 10th and 11th December.

The Country Centre will be magically transformed into a Christmas Village with Santa's Grotto, and Elf workshop plus craft stalls, festive lights, food, music and much more,

Jared Bowers, General Manager for Kelburn, and the man behind this Christmas Extravaganza, said: “It’s fun for the whole family, as visitors search for Christmas clues spread across the Country Centre, including some special locations in the Secret Forest, that give them the password to get into Santa's Grotto, where every child between two and 14 receives a gift!”

He continued: “The Playbarn will be converted into the North Pole, an ideal setting for Santa’s Grotto, and a great place to visit Santa whilst staying warm!”

Rangers will be roasting marshmallows by the campfire and there’s free mulled wine and mince pies for the parents too.

Tickets are available online and selling fast, so the Kelburn team strongly recommend buying them early as there is limited capacity and this event has now sold out two years in a row!
