Willows Activity Farm is helping people to wave goodbye to the January blues this New Year with their wintery weekends of fun.

The farm’s new Wintery Warm-Up Weekends will take place on Saturday, January 25, and Sunday, January 26, and Saturday, February 1, and Sunday, February 2.

Visitors to the attraction will get to experience winter magic in three new theatrical productions with the Eskimo Show, Winter Fairy Show and the Snow Queen performance – the latter a tale of Sprig, the winter sprite doing jobs for the Snow Queen.

Resident Alaskan malamute Mischka will be warming guests’ hearts as she makes an exclusive appearance in the new Eskimo show. Fans of Mischka’s performance will be pleased to hear that she is also holding meet-and-greets on both weekends.

The weekends also see the introduction of a new game, Hide and Shivery Seek, where children can let off steam in the hunt for hidden winter warmers.

Kevin McIllmurray, General Manager at Willows Activity Farm, said: “After a busy Christmas, we’re keen to continue spreading joy here at Willows.

“From the usual activities such as Pat a Pet, to our brand new Eskimo, Snow Queen and Winter Fairy Shows, we are excited to be holding a new event which we hope leaves families feeling extra warm this winter!”

Peter Rabbit, Benjamin Bunny and Lily Bobtail will also be joining in the fun, as they star in their own wintery shows and meet-and-greets.

In addition to the new programme of winter entertainment, there is also feeding time on the farm, arts and crafts in the Busy Bee Marquee, and an indoor soft play barn for the family to enjoy.
