Santa, please stop here…

29 November 2013

Many people assume our holiday parks close down before Christmas but this couldn’t be further from the truth. So why not hop on your sleigh and pay us a visit this year?

There’s plenty of festive fun for all the family taking place at a variety of our parks. Our properties, which remain snug and cosy, take on a yuletide glow at this time of year and you never know, Santa might even drop in for a visit!

Christmas Party

Tydd St Giles Golf & Leisure Estate often hosts annual Christmas Party Carvery Nights in December. The nights include a three-course Christmas carvery meal, with mince pies and coffee and there is Christmas music playing throughout the evenings.

Most years the park offers visitors a Christmas carvery meal on selected Sundays in December too – a perfect treat for all the family.

Billing Aquadrome Holiday Park & Showground hosts numerous festive events and activities for young and old alike, such as asking people to write their wishes on cardboard stars in return for a donation to the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance (WNAA).

Last year the team decided to place a Christmas wishes tree in The Venue as they thought it would be a great way to raise money for a worthy cause and they are hoping to do it again in the future. People take a star, write a wish on it, pop a donation in the collection box and tie the star to the tree. Some people chose to remember a loved one on the star as an alternative to a wish.


The WNAA does a fantastic job of preventing loss of life and aiding recovery for people in the area and attends an average of four calls per day from road traffic collisions to house fires. It aims to attend any situation it can with its technologically advanced civilian helicopter.

Billing Aquadrome Holiday Park & Showground hosts an annual Christmas Extravaganza. During the event there is a Christmas market including craft stalls, festive treats, decorations and trees and much more. Children also have the opportunity to meet Santa in his grotto each day.

There will be festive food and treats on offer including mince pies and mulled wine, as well as free face painting and a soft play area for youngsters. Entry to the Christmas Extravaganza is usually free and tickets do not have to be booked.
