LaplandUK announces new winter dates

LaplandUK has announced its winter season dates for this season, which will run from 4 to 24 December. The lavish interactive theatrical production, which recreates Father Christmas’ arctic homeland, has become the essential destination for families seeking the ultimate Father Christmas visit in the UK.

This season is LaplandUK’s fourth year of operation and the captivating Nordic-inspired day out will again be located at the beautiful Bewl Water Estate, near Tunbridge Wells in Kent, just 40 miles from Central London.

Tickets prices have been reduced this year by an average of 30 percent. Included in the ticket price is the opportunity for every child to decorate gingerbread in Mother Christmas’ kitchen, go “ice-skating”, meet husky dogs, see reindeer, send a postcard from Father Christmas’ working North Pole Post Office, work with the elves on a new activity in Father Christmas’ toy factory and meet the mystical Sami people.


A personalised visit to Father Christmas himself in his snowy forest home completes this unique day and because parents or guardians have already provided Father Christmas with all the information he needs (via the website), he “magically” knows everything about his little guests and presents every child a beautiful high quality gift.

Mike Battle, Founder and Managing Director said: “We are keen to make the LaplandUK experience available to a wide range of families in these challenging economic times. By operating for only three weeks this winter our running costs are greatly reduced and we can pass these savings on to our customers. In addition we have removed the cost of the food from the ticket price.”

Families will be able to purchase a range of quality warming snacks and meals as well as hot and cold drinks in the Nordic restaurant on site.


It’s a recipe that has enchanted over 120,000 visitors to date and promises to do the same again this year.

LaplandUK’s vision is to provide a magical high quality Lapland-inspired Christmas experience for all the famil in the UK as an alternative to flying to Lapland, thus enabling children to have an enchanting Christmas day trip without generating extra carbon emissions.

Tickets range between £44.50 and £62.50. Bookings must be completed in advance and can be made on-line at; tel: 0871 620 7063.
