Come see us at the Wild Place at Milton Country Park on December 10th for a truly magical Christmas experience. Meet characters from the world of Narnia such as Mr Tumnus, The White Witch, and of course, Father Christmas. The experience lasts an hour and in that time your child will make a Christmas promise and two crafted decorations for the Christmas tree at home; take a walk through the park on a magical trail to hang their Christmas promise on a tree and then head back again for an audience with Father Christmas.
We are running this magical event seven times during the day. Please select your preferred time slot carefully when registering.
We aim to be as environmentally friendly as possible and this is reflected throughout the event.

Once you've made your magic doorway simply take it home and place it on your skirting board or wall. Learn mixed media craft skills such as using found objects, 3D paint effects and embellishments.
Calling all aspiring Witches and Wizards!
Your little witch or wizard will get to make a magic wand to take home and cast their very own creative spells! Choose a wand and make it uniquely individual for your magical needs with our enchanted ribbons, bells, buttons, beads, colourful strings and lots more. We'll even help you write your own spells!
Calling all Spell and Potion Masters!
Cook up your own magical potion to bottle and take home with you, as well as writing your own enchantment spell. We'll have mini glass potion bottles to keep your potion fresh for decades, and ribbon so you can carry it with you whenever you might need it. Eyes of newts, puppy dog tails, and frog’s legs are not included!

What do I need to bring on the day?
Please bring your printed tickets and wear suitable clothing - dressing up is encouraged! The Enchanted Days area has refreshments for sale.
What do I need to consider before buying?
The Wild Place is a beautiful secluded woodland that has uneven ground and is a natural environment. We insist that you adhere to treating the space with respect and take your rubbish home. We have a no-tree climbing policy whilst in the Enchanted Days area and expect full parental supervision throughout the experience.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
Milton Country Park is just off of exit 33 from the A14, there will be limited room for parking. It's also about a ten minute walk from the Science Park if you arrive by bus.
Can I take photographs at the event?
We ask you politely to not take photographs during the workshops due to safeguarding issues and disrupting the fun during the workshops. You can take photos in the Enchanted Encampment but they must not be used for commercial use.
But what if it rains?
Even with all the magic that we have we cannot guarantee the great British weather. We are providing covered areas and will do our best to deliver a special experience on the day.
*Is our time in The Wild Place, Enchanted Days even unlimited?
We want you to have the best experience possible which is why when have a ticket for a workshop you are welcome to enter as a family. Enchanted Days will also be offering visitors extra activities but due to the capacity of the space we can not realistically allow everyone to stay for the duration of the day. We do not want to become over-crowded resulting in not only a disappointing experience for you but also because it will be dangerous. We guarantee at least one hour in The Enchanted Days area including your workshop time, however if it gets too busy you will be asked to enjoy the fun in the rest of the Autumn Festival.
