Christmas Grotto

Special event

Sat 27th November – Fri 24th December, Woodhorn Museum

10 minute time slots bookable from 10am - 3.30pm (check calendar below for available dates and times) Child £8.50 to include a gift, free accompanying adult (must have a valid Annual Pass)

Note: Tickets for both the relaxed and regular sessions have now sold out.

Let’s give Father Christmas a warm Woodhorn welcome when he visits the Workshop Galleries this year.

You are invited to come and meet Father Christmas this Christmas and find out what you should be leaving for him and the Reindeers on Christmas Eve.

2021 has been another challenging year for everyone and Father Christmas is no different! But you will be pleased to hear that Coronavirus didn’t reach The North Pole and we are following all of the Covid guidelines to keep you and Father Christmas as safe as possible ahead of the big day.

You can book a 10-minute session with Father Christmas for groups of up to 6 people.

The ticket price is £8.50 per child (There is no charge for adults, but all adults must have a valid Annual Pass to get admission to Woodhorn Museum. You can buy this in advance online or on the gate – but make sure you arrive with plenty of time to do this on the day).

The ticket price includes:

  • A 10-minute session with Father Christmas
  • A photo opportunity – socially distanced of course and you will have to take the photo yourselves this year.
  • An age-relevant gift

As well as visiting the Christmas Grotto in the Workshop Galleries, why not also enjoy Woody’s Winter Trail and go on hunt for the reindeer hiding around the museum.

Terms and Conditions

Tickets cost £8.50 per child and include a gift.

At the time of booking, please make sure you have selected the correct date and time within the booking calendar.

Please take into consideration your availability, and any travel times that may impact on your visit as tickets for the Christmas Grotto are non-refundable.

Please make sure all adults have a valid Annual Pass. You can buy your Annual Pass online ahead of your visit, or allow time to buy your admission on the gate when you arrive.

If you are a few minutes late, we will do everything we can to get you to see Father Christmas within your booked timeslot, but this cannot be guaranteed.

We expect the Christmas Grotto to be fully booked. If you miss your timeslot completely, due to the limited capacity, we will not have any flexibility to fit you in to a later timeslot but we will make sure your children receive their gift.

Tickets for the Christmas Grotto are non-refundable and non-transferrable by Museums Northumberland. If you are unable to use your tickets you are welcome to transfer your booking to someone you know.
