The Wildwood Trust



Christmas at Wildwood

We will once again be hosting our always popular Wildwood Santa’s Grotto. Tickets are available for every weekend in December and the week leading up to Christmas Day and each child will get a quality gift, a visit with Santa, a mounted photo and will also see Santa’s reindeer in their stable.
In addition to the grotto, we also have some local schools providing Christmas Carols on 3rd December to get everyone in the mood. And for the little ‘uns we have crafting activities on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday just before the big day.

Christmas raffle tickets are available from the shop for a chance to win a bear experience, a zoo keeper experience or a luxury large soft toy.
