The award-winning Yorkshire Wildlife Park is unwrapping a magical range of events that will keep families and children entertained through to Christmas.
The festive calendar features the ever-popular Christmas Fairs, held over two action-packed weekends, where Santa and a cast of Christmas characters, including Victor the Polar Bear Santa spread the season’s goodwill.
The innovative park will be full of events for all the family and an unrivalled opportunity to snap up Christmas presents from over 100 stalls bustling with arts, crafts and gifts in a fully-heated marquee over the Fair weekends of December 9-10and 16-17.
