Back for our 4th year, come to the farm this winter for festivities full of flavour. On select weekends in November and December, we transform the farm into a fairytale world of mulled cyder and hearty food, Christmas songs, and crafts. Bring family, friends, and a healthy appetite, for a taste of authentic Healeys Christmas spirit.
Every weekend from Saturday 14th November until Sunday 20th December 2020*
Fairy lights, twinkling around our 80-year-old cobbled courtyard. The scent of spruce and spice all around. Christmas songs on the air. On select weekends in November and December, we transform the farm into a fairytale world of mulled cyder and hearty food, Christmas songs, and crafts. Bring family, friends, and a healthy appetite, for a taste of authentic Healeys Christmas spirit.
Entry to the farm requires an annual pass, which can be booked online at just £5 per adult (Senior and Child also available). Annual Passes give you unlimited access to the farm for a whole year, including during seasonal events that we may host. (Excludes entry to festivals). Alternatively, you can purchase a day pass for £3 per adult.
If you already have a Healeys annual pass, please book your visit free of charge through the member's area here.
If you don't have your Healeys annual pass yet, you can pre-book your visit here.
With a period of closure during the lockdown, Healeys re-opened its doors on 4th July. The following measures have successfully been put into place during a busy summer period and welcomed by customers and will continue throughout our Christmas Market weekends.
✓ Allowing only 700 visitors at one time to ensure social distancing. This hasn’t affected total visitor numbers, it just means visitors are spread throughout the day.
✓ Staggered pre-booking entry slots through a new online booking system. Visitors can use their annual pass for free entry or purchase a day ticket for £3 per adult.
✓ Clearly marked queue systems to enter the farm
✓ Managing customer flow around the farm with floor markings and signage meaning customers are able to adhere to social distancing.
✓ Customers will be encouraged to wear face coverings in our shops and indoor market area
✓ Hand wash stations to be used before entering the farm and the restaurant, plus additional hand sanitiser stations throughout the farm
✓ We have reduced our guided tours so we have opened our Press House, Cyder Museum, Distillery, and Cellars for customers to enjoy with admission along with free samplings in the farm shop.
Public safety is our number one priority, so with this in mind, we have a brand new layout for 2020. We will be looking to move our Christmas market space to our large main restaurant, which will allow for comfortable social distancing between stallholders, additional space plus a safe & enjoyable customer experience with clear floor markings and signage.
The restaurant will then move to the brand new Rattler Bar, complete with the pour-your-own-pint station.
NEW for 2020: We have select spaces for mobile catering units in the bottom courtyard outside the restaurant which meet the Christmas Market criteria.
A Christmas market would not be the same without a selection of the finest local talent we have in the county. If you would like to book a trade stall at our Christmas markets, please email [email protected] to find out more and obtain a booking form.
