11 & 12 November
Meet the Reindeer: Free – open from 11am

Santa’s Arrival: Free – starts at 3pm
Santa’s Parade: To follow Santa through the Enchanted Forest you will need to purchase an Adventure Zone ticket.


Listen… can you here the jingle bells? Santa is on his way!

Come and join Santa and his wonderful reindeer as he arrives at Stockeld Park to mark the opening of our magical Santa’s Grotto.

Santa’s reindeer spend the rest of the year roaming wild in the Cairngorm mountain range in Scotland and are lovingly cared for in anticipation of their very special night on Christmas Eve! You will be able to see them in their paddock at Stockeld Park from 11.00am onwards on both Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th November.

Santa’s Sleigh parade will take place around the Enchanted forest at 3pm on both days. You may follow the parade for free up to the Enchanted Forest gates and then you will need to have an Enchanted Forest ticket to follow the parade around the magical illuminated woods.

The last entry before the parade for the nordic skiing will be at 1:30pm as it will be temporarily closed from 2pm – 4pm during the parade.

Take part in our special raffle and one lucky child will win the chance to ride alongside Santa in his sleigh.  Santa will then be available to meet and greet in his very special grotto.

If you would like to experience the full parade you can buy your Enchanted Forest tickets on the day or click to buy your Day Passes online.
