Experience Christmas at Kent Life

This December, Father Christmas will be taking time out of his busy schedule to stop off at Kent Life.

Ho Ho Ho!

Come along and join in the festive fun. Jump on board our Land Train driven by the Head Elf and don’t forget to grab your chance to meet Father Christmas in his magical grotto and take home a special gift. There’s also the opportunity to decorate some festive gingerbread too! Grown ups can also enjoy a cheeky mince pie and sampling of  cider.

Pay a visit to our farmyard friends, they love to see our guests throughout December.

Don’t forget to send your letter to Father Christmas in the post office, visit cuddle corner and take a trip to our paint a pot studio. Why not download our itinerary in advance to help plan your visit?

Experience Christmas – Visitors with additional needs

New for 2019, we will have a dedicated day on Thursday 19th December for those with additional needs such as autism and other sensory difficulties.

This gives families an opportunity to meet Father Christmas in a calmer environment, with quieter music, lower lighting and smaller group sizes, to reduce overloading the senses and create an experience which is accessible for all. There are a limited number of sessions, and these can only be booked by phone – please call 01622 763936.
