Meet Father christmas at

Stork of Stamford

The Stork of Stamford team is thrilled to announce that Father Christmas will be spending some time in his grotto, located upstairs in the most beautiful room we have to offer!

Children will have the chance to meet Father Christmas himself, and he may even bring along his top elf or Mother Clause to greet you on the day as well. If comfortable doing so, children are welcome to engage in a friendly conversation with Father Christmas, who is always up for a chat!

At the conclusion of each child's visit, they will be given a wrapped gift suitable to their age group (as pre-selected during your booking). Please be aware that the exact toy cannot be guaranteed and will vary from the toy depicted in the photograph.

To assist the whole family in commemorating this special experience, family photos are available to purchase on the day. You can also elect to purchase one single digital file in advance, which will save 20% versus paying at the door.

VIP Experience: For an extra special encounter with Father Christmas, you can opt for a Personalised VIP Experience. Share key details with us, and Father Christmas will cleverly work those details into conversation with your child. "Olivia, you have been a very helpful big sister to your baby brother, Oliver." As part of the VIP Package, you will be sent all digital photo files from the encounter.



Father Christmas thinks adults deserve a special treat as well. Because of this, he will be giving adults a coupon for 10% off of any purchase made on the day of your visit.
