On arrival you will be asked to take your seats in the festive lit marquees, enjoy alfresco hot chocolate and immerse yourself in the show, as children get to interact with Father Christmas live from the North Pole via a large screen.


We endeavour to take you on an exciting journey to find the magic portal inside Himley Hall which will transport us to the home of Father Christmas.  Find out if you’ve made the naughty or nice list, receive a bespoke Himley Hall gift and enjoy a Christmas craft and food market*, festive entertainment and vintage fairground.


The show, including the interactive meeting with Father Christmas all takes place on a large screen.  This event is set in the courtyard and grounds of Himley Hall so wrap up warm!
