An Airfield Christmas Experience 2016
If a traditional family Christmas with fun for all ages is what you’re looking for then come along to Airfield Estate
Experience a Christmas like never before at Airfield Estate this festive season. Enjoy a warm elf welcome before stepping into an enchanting festive tepee where you’ll have the chance to write and post your letter to Santa Claus, before meeting the man himself for some story-telling and a special gift.
Specially selected by Santa himself, Airfield’s elves will be on hand to greet all the good boys and girls with seasonal cheer before inviting them into a magical tepee. Write and post your letter, create Christmas crafts and watch some old fashioned, merry movies. Then it’s time to meet our favourite festive fellow, Santa himself in his home from home at Airfield Estate for some story-telling and receive an early gift.
But that’s not all. Get wrapped back up in scarves and gloves and pop over to the Christmas courtyard. Meet some of Airfield’s newest arrivals, newborn farm animals and enjoy a cup of warm hot chocolate made with creamy milk fresh from Airfield’s Jersey cows. Not forgetting Mums and Dads and Grannies and Grandads, they can stay cosy with seasonal mulled wine and browse or shop for something special at the Christmas market featuring quality Irish-made gifts and wonderful seasonal artisan food.
While all this is happening, the elves will be busy like Airfield’s bees hard at work in the kitchen. Pop in and help them decorate some tasty gingerbread treats to bring home, if you haven’t munched them all by then. Visit the Grey Barn and for a chance to see where Santa stores his sleigh. If that’s not enough finish off your visit by stopping by the North Pole Express train and hop on board for a festive journey around the gardens.
As always sustainability is a key theme to Airfield’s activities. Stop by the Polar Express Way and see a giant Christmas tree made entirely from tomato cans recycled from Overends restaurant.
Schools and community groups also have the chance to take part in a Christmas Tree Challenge. The challenge is to make a fantastic tree using only recycled materials … tin cans, plastic bottles, milk or egg cartons.
Send Airfield an image of your tree by Wednesday November 30th and the top ten will be chosen to go on display decorating the Polar Express Way alongside Airfield’s tree. Visitors during the festive season will then have the chance to vote for their favourite and the winning group receives a trip to Airfield Estate.
If fun, family experiences all year round is what you’re after then keep it going by giving family or friends a very special gift this Christmas with an annual membership to Airfield Estate. As Ireland’s largest urban farm and food gardens experience, it’s the perfect spot for a special family experience where all ages and generations can have fun and discover more about food, farming and the natural world.
