Meet St Nicholas and Lady Winter in their Yuletide grottos this Christmas 2020.
Our St Nicholas mirrors the Father Christmas of the past. Dress warmly, and gather, socially distanced, in the Northwood kitchen courtyard – where there will be a fire – or in the courtyard marquee. Enjoy a glass of hot punch, alcoholic and non-alcoholic available, before being taken to the woodland grotto to make a wish with Lady Winter and then meet St Nicholas in his grotto for a short story with the very experienced story teller. Aimed at the whole family.
Please be aware, if you are looking for a red Santa Claus this isn’t it! This Christmas event will be an atmospheric Christmas of stories, lanterns and imagination. Children won’t receive a toy but something more meaningful and symbolic instead, a wishing stone as well as chocolate coin. Event runs on: 5th and 6th, 12th and 13th December, 17th to 23th December 2020. At 12noon, 1.30, 3.00 and 4.30pm.
To comply with Covid guidelines, each story session with St Nicholas can hold up to 40 people max, tickets are sold by the “table” that can hold up to 5 (i.e. 8 tables socially distanced in the marquee grotto). The table ticket price is£115 for 5 people (£23pp) and includes the fairy trail ticket, fairy museum with fairy winter display, and like last year includes a magic pebble for making a wish in Lady winters well (virucidally cleaned). Please note – as a small business, there will be no refunds if the sessions cannot take place due to Covid-19, they will instead be deferred to Christmas 2021.
