Sandwell Council’s popular Christmas at the Valley is back and tickets are selling fast.
Almost 4,000 tickets have already been sold and Christmas Eve is completely sold out. Some weekends now have limited availability and some time slots have sold out.
Families can visit Santa’s grotto, see the reindeer and take part in Christmas crafts. There will also be festive food and drinks, a small funfair, a Christmas shop and a treasure hunt.
This year, in addition to these festivities, families are set to be wowed by a Christmas circus. Shows will run throughout the day and include death-defying stunts like the wheel of death.
Christmas at the Valley runs every day from Saturday 2 December right up until Christmas Eve. Sandwell Park Farm will at open 10am to 6pm on weekends and 10am to 5pm on weekdays with last entry at 4pm during weekends and 3pm during the week. Tickets for Christmas Eve are already sold out.
Admission is £11 for children aged between two and 11 who want to see Santa in his grotto. Admission for children under two is £5, for adults and children aged 12 and over is £7 and £4 for over 60s. Admission for over 12s does not include a present from Santa.
Cabinet member Councillor Paul Moore is urging people to get their tickets now. He said: “This year’s event is proving to be very popular with ticket sales outstripping last year’s.
“I would urge people to book tickets online sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment.
“The farm is already looking very festive in preparation for when the event opens on Saturday 2 December.”
Christmas At The Valley is an outdoor event located in a working farm. Shelter is limited at the farm so families are asked to wrap up warm and be prepared for windy and rainy conditions.
