A magical Santa visit in the great outdoors!

A magical Santa visit in the great outdoors!

Thursday 30th November 17 - Sunday 17th December 17

Venue: Peatlands Park, Loughgall (Exit 13 - M1)

The festive experience brings something for everyone of all ages. The Peatlands event package has reserved a special train service to chug along the Park’s narrow-gauge railway to see Santa, which includes a gift, a free make and take craft and refreshments as part of the ticket price.

For visitors preferring to make the takeaway Christmas craft, a pay on the day charge of £4 is applicable, this doesn't include the Santa train visit or refreshments. A timed ticketing system is in place to keep Santa’s nerves intact! Visitors are asked to book where possible online and to arrive 15 minutes before the visit.

We are delighted to have the support of Saltmarine Cars, you will have a chance to see their latest models on your way to Santa. 

Over 1900 babies are born too soon (six babies every day), too small or too sickin Northern Ireland. Some arrive as early as 24 weeks, weighing as little as 1lb/454 grams, the same weight as half a bag of sugar! At this understandably very stressful time for parents, TinyLife is there to provide practical advice, emotional support and to give a helping hand to families who have a baby in a neonatal intensive care unit, with their network of Family Support Officers in every neonatal unit across Northern Ireland, ensuring parents receive optimum support in hospital, at home and within the community, all ably supported by a dedicated team of active volunteers.

Peatlands Park Warden, Martin Hampton said, “Our train is always a huge draw throughout the year bringing visitors face to face with nature. Christmas is a wonderful time for children and families, so it is especially poignant that we can take this opportunity to support the work of such a worthwhile charity, who help transform lives every day. As our train turns into the magical Peatlands Santa Express, we would encourage visitors to hop aboard and escape to the great outdoors while supporting TinyLife – a double feel-good factor!”

So book today and have a great day out while supporting Northern Ireland's premature babies.

Sat/Sun - 9 + 10 and 16 + 17 December 2017.
