Illuminations Weekends 2018

About

Don't miss our Illuminated Evenings on Saturdays and Sundays from 13th October to 23rd December, and 24th December.

The park will be open all day as normal, but when daylight fades the entire Enchanted Walk will become a magical wonderland of fairy lights, which will delight children and adults. The Mermaid Garden, Giant's Camera, The Extinct Band, Giant Party Poppers, and Light Fountains will be a blaze of colour and the Dancing Water Fountains will be illuminated. We also have new and updated features that were not part of last year's line-up, and our Fairytale Street will be illuminated.

The farm will stay open until one hour after dusk every weekend. We operate a reduced admissions price from 5pm (4pm from 28th October). The Beanstalk Cafe will be open throughout with a choice of hot and cold snacks.

We also offer an all-in farm admission and food package. Our 'Illuminations and Supper' package is available from 5pm (4pm from 28th October) for £6.25 per person. This price gives evening entry to the Farm (with a chance to see the animals if you arrive promptly), a soup with crusty bread or hot dog plus a hot or cold drink, and finish the evening with a stroll through the illuminated gardens after the lights switch on. A truly magical evening for the whole family. You can buy these in advance online for only £5.60 (a saving of 10% per person from this already discounted price). Note that the animal area and playground closes at dusk so please arrive as soon after 5pm (4pm from 28th October) as you can if you want to see these parts of the park before the illuminations switch on.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Walking with Alpacas 2018

On Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the summer school holidays visitors to Fairytale Farm can walk with our amazing alpacas. Take one of these enchanting creatures around a farm trail and learn the art of training an alpaca to walk (alpacas are not naturally social creatures with anything other than another alpaca). It is a real one-to-one experience, with your very own alpaca.

Summer Holiday dates: Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The sessions are at 12 noon and 3pm, with access from the Huff and Puff adventure playground. Charge is £2 per person walking. Each walk will be escorted by an experienced animal handler and parents can accompany young children on the walk.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sci-Fi Weekend 2018

Fairytale Farm is being invaded by TV's most frightening aliens on Saturday and Sunday 11th and 12th August when the farm park holds a special Sci-Fi Weekend in aid of charity. The aim of the weekend is to raise money for Let's Play, a local Banbury-based charity for disabled children, and there will be opportunities to donate to the charity at various places around the farm.

The Sci-Fi Weekend runs from 10am to 5pm on both Saturday and Sunday. Put the date in your diary now!
