We’ve had an overwhelming response to Father Christmas this year and all our slots are now fully booked.
Come and meet Father Christmas in his traditional grotto on the Victorian Street at Preston Park Museum, every weekend from Saturday 27 November until Sunday 19 December. With twinkly festoon lights hung above the cobbles and traditional swags and wreaths decorating the street, we promise to make your visit magical! Places are limited and must be booked in advance.
Each child will receive a gift from Father Christmas.
Visits to see Father Christmas must be pre-booked online. You can arrive at the grotto at any time during your booked slot. Your visit with Father Christmas will last about 5 minutes. Once you have booked your visit you will receive a booking confirmation email. You will need to show this when you arrive.
On the day of your visit, you will also need to purchase a museum ticket from the Welcome Desk or show a valid annual museum pass.
How much is it?
A visit to see Father Christmas is £8 per child and includes a gift. You will also need to buy a ticket for the museum or show a valid annual pass. All of our tickets last a year so you can visit as many times as you like. Museum admission prices
