Join Marwell for an Enchanted Christmas.Make your family’s Christmas magical and join the elves in Marwell's enchanted world in Marwell Hall.
Begin your enchanted experience by enjoying some festive refreshments, Be charmed by Mother Christmas in Pirate Cove and listen to stories from Neverland - inspired by Peter Pan, Create your own Christmas present bag in the elves workshop, and Meet Father Christmas and receive a special gift before posing for a professionally taken family photo.
To spread extra cheer, the elves have starred in their very own festive take of the viral hit Baby Shark. Baby Elf, which can be viewed on Marwell's social media channels, features a catchy backing track thanks to the zoo’s own workplace choir and follows a family of mischievous elves as they prepare for Christmas.
Marwell will also be encouraging guests to take #Elfies – selfies with the playful elves for a social media competition. To be in with a chance of winning a stocking full of presents, guests will need to upload their pictures from the Christmas at Marwell event using the hashtag #Elfie to Marwell’s Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. The winner will be announced every Monday from 19 November for the duration of the event.
Just one of the many reviews from the 2017 Christmas at Marwell event: "Having participated in a large number of Christmas events at various places with the grandchildren I can honestly say that the Marwell Christmas event surpassed any of the others. The group sizes were just right and all the children seemed to enjoy the story time and plate painting. Everything was arranged beautifully. The gift was excellent quality too. This was 1.5 hours well spent and we will definitely go again. Plenty of time after for a meal in the restaurant and visit to the animals. Well worth the money." ~ SueN280 on Trip Advisor.
This event requires pre-booking, please see the Marwell website for prices and booking information. Your experience will last around 60-80 minutes and includes zoo entry*
