Nativity Plays and Visits to Father Christmas

Christmas 2018 coming soon 

Rekindle the true spirit of the season and put the arrival of baby Jesus at the heart of Christmas. An authentic manger scene in a cosy barn with all the animals, followed by a visit to Father Christmas and delicious refreshments. The perfect start to your Christmas celebrations.
Picture the scene - a magical manger setting with all the Pennywell animals, the barn twinkling with hundreds of tiny lights hidden within the beautiful Christmas trees and carols ringing out across the farm. Hear the wonderful story of the Nativity and see it brought to life.
We take care of the whole direction and every child is given the opportunity to dress up and be one of the star performers if they would like to. Costumes are provided so there really is a host of heavenly angels and many shepherds watching their sheep. Adults and children are welcome to take part in the performance or take a seat on the cosy straw bales and look on as the greatest story ever told comes to life.
After the performance each child will meet Father Christmas in his magical grotto to receive their very special Christmas gift.
A warm festive welcome then awaits you in Henny Penny's Cafe where the smell of mulled wine and delicious warm mince pies fills the air. Children are treated to a homemade Christmas biscuit and soft drink, while adults enjoy a glass of mulled wine or a tea/coffee and a warm mince pie.  
Breakfast with Santa is included FREE on selected dates.  
You need to allow at least two hours at Pennywell, arriving no more than fifteen minutes before the time of your performance. Christmas at Pennywell is a truly unique experience so don't forget your camera! 
Booking is essential!
Tickets on sale soon. 

Your Family Christmas Starts Here

It's the Perfect start to your Christmas

"The visit to Santa was the highlight for my two boys and checking on them asleep in their beds last night, both with the toys that  Santa had given them."

Sam Mackenzie 

"I've never felt so close to the Christmas story as I had in that barn. Even the Christmas carols seemed much more real and far less "routine."

Holloway Family


Booking is essential! Your performance will be in the barn with all the animals so wrap up warm! After the performance refreshments will be served and the children will visit Father Christmas for their present.

The whole experience takes about two hours and you are welcome to stay longer. Please be aware that the Cafe is only open for festive refreshments after the performance. 

The pets area and piggy cuddles area are both open, along with Noahs Barn and the Tractor Village. A Christmas film will be running in the theatre.
