Get ready to embark on a wild and wonderful Christmas adventure as Beale Wildlife Park gears up for the holiday season. This year’s festival activities promise to be a celebration for families and wildlife enthusiasts alike.  

Event Highlights:

  • SANTA’S GROTTO; Step into winter and meet Santa Claus himself. Children will have the opportunity to share their Christmas wishes with Santa, and with the help of Santa’s elf, each child will pick a small gift to remember their special visit.
  • MEET THE REINDEERS; While Santa is busy meeting children and checking their lists, why not visit the most important animals of the season? Resting before the big night arrives, our Reindeer paddock can be booked for feeding opportunities and keeper talks.
  • WINTER TRAIL; Discover the hidden beauty of Beale Wildlife Park as it takes on a new charm during the holiday season. Explore the park’s beautiful winter landscape and search for penguins and snowmen to win a prize.
  • CHRISTMAS CRAFT WORKSHOPS; Get creative with holiday-themed craft workshops suitable for all ages. Create a wooden reindeer, tree decorations or cards to take home as treasured keepsakes. And don’t forget to visit the letter-writing station in the education centre.
