Christmas Time Tangle !
White Post Farm 2021
We were contacted by White Post Farm in 2021 – their attention had been caught by a particular image on our website – the expression on the faces of the audience in the shot was exactly what they wanted for their visitors. Could we help them to create an outdoor Christmas experience?
What We Did
Following a temperature meeting we formalised plans. The site had a loyal audience and had previously provided an indoor grotto delivered in-house. They also had a fantastic build team. Our proposal was to create the concept, narrative and visitor journey whilst providing a design to the build team and allocating a member of our team to oversee construction. The chosen theme was ‘Time Tangle’ – a whistle-stop tour through Christmases past before helping Santa to fix his time machine ready for Christmas Eve. We created distinct zones in the Time Tangle field – Victorian, Medieval and Prehistoric as well as the central hub of the experience – Santa’s time machine.
The event was hugely successful – garnering terrific feedback from visitors – and was delivered over four weekends in November and December and the run up to Christmas Day. The client was able to launch a new visitor experience concept, and see it running smoothly with their desired through-flow of audience – unlocking the potential that utilising outdoor spaces even in Winter – can offer for visitor attractions.
“I have to say we have had some fantastic feedback so far and I was over the moon when we sold out of the tickets by Thursday morning. We had to turn quite a few people away for Halloween itself – but a good problem to have!”
