Ferry Meadows Christmas Fair

We're feeling festive at Ferry Meadows with our Christmas Fair this November. We've taken on board feedback from our visitors about further availability for the most popular events so we are bringing a Festive Going on a Bear Hunt, with the chance for kids to learn the story, enjoy a walk, meet Barney the Bear in his Christmas finery and receive a present (pre-bookable by clicking here >>).

Festive Bear Hunt

In addition to this, we have plenty of activities on for everyone to enjoy including a variety of craft and gift stalls with products that would make perfect presents for loved ones this Christmas, Christmas crafts for all ages, Moments with Trees activities, decorate some edible treats to take home with you (if they last that long!), tree themed activities, bumper cars, a merry-go-round, festive storytelling a selection of bands to perform Christmas carols and lots more.

Even our swans want to be part of the Christmas Fair, so our watersports team at Nene Outdoors will be hosting a Swan Pedalo Christmas Trivia Challenge! Wrap up warm and test your Christmas knowledge and pedalling skills, then answer Christmas trivia questions on the buoys on the lake and race against the clock to hand in your answers. It's on at 11.30am both days at a bargain price of just £10 per swan pedalo and can be booked here >>

Hannah from the Moments with Trees team is holding a drop-in Pot a tree and Christmas tree cookies session on Saturday and a pre-bookable Winter Tree ID (for beginners) event on Sunday at 11am. For more details and to book click here >>

We even have a special treat for pooches with a mobile dog grooming station so you can pamper your pooch in time for Christmas. We will have dog goody bags and a range of gifts available to purchase! They are also welcome in the marquee, Gift Shop and to accompany the kids on the Holiday Trail around Overton Lake.

In addition to all of this festive fun, our usual favourites will sparkle with a dusting of Christmas magic including a holiday themed trail around the Park, Christmas shopping at the Gift Shop and festive treats from Ferry Meadows Café. The Nene Valley Railway is also running the Santa Special steam train ride from Peterborough to Wansford that travels past Ferry Meadows.

The event takes place on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 November and will be open 11am - 4pm. We look forward to seeing you there.
