Father Christmas' Flying Visit

Wednesday 22 December, 11:30am-1:30pm, 3-5pm or 6:30-8:30pm

Evergreen, the mischievous Elf, is up to his old tricks again! Last year, he missed meetings with Big Foot and the Snow Queen, told ‘rude’ jokes and needed to learn how to wear his uniform properly – fortunately Ennis the Great Grey Owl helped him there. He got his just desserts though with a custard pie splat!

Father Christmas has kept him working at the Hawk Conservancy Trust making presents under the beady watch of Charlie the Barn Owl. He keeps an eye on all elves, boys and girls so that Father Christmas knows who to put on his naughty and nice lists. Something magical happens at Christmas time and the owls will share with us all the details of Evergreen’s mischievousness of the past year.

Father Christmas and more of his magical team of owls will be stopping at the Trust for this special family event. Find out what mischief Evergreen the Elf is up to and watch the magical owls fly. Girls and boys will meet Mother Christmas, who will share some freshly-baked treats from her kitchen for the children to enjoy whilst she tells them about the magical owls.

Father Christmas’ elves will have a special present to give out to every good girl and boy too!

This joyous family event will allow you to watch our birds fly and join in with activities with plenty of covid safety measures in place. The event includes magical owl flying display and festive storytelling. It also includes a hot dog or burger, festive biscuit and hot drink and we have plenty of outdoor seating with space to allow for social distancing.
