We can’t wait for our special Christmas events and activities to start and we bet our last snowball that you won’t be able to wait either! At Sandy Balls we have an array of arts & craft sessions, games, movies and family-bonding activities all with the theme of Christmas!
To avoid disappointment we recommend booking in advance which can be done online, via the Away Resorts app or on arrival and you must book at least 30 minutes prior to your chosen activity.To ensure you get an experience that would impress the likes of the Big Man himself, some of activities do come at a small charge.
We’re excited to announce you can meet the Big Man himself at Sandy Balls this Christmas. Santa will be in town from every Weekend and Wednesday between 1st – 23rd December and will have a present for all the lovely children who visit him. Tickets cost £9.50 and can be purchased online or on-park.

We’ve put a festive-spin on our daily My Active activities:
Christmas Archery: Games include “Dress the Elf” and “Make The Snowman.” How good is your aim?

Christmas isn’t complete without a festive feast with all the trimmings. Check out our Aubrey’s Forest Kitchen menu here! To book a table at Aubrey’s, please call 01425 651 215. All we’ll ask for is a name to go with the booking, the number of people expected to dine with us and their choices from the menu.
Snuggle up with the family and grab the popcorn for the ultimate Christmas movie experience. We’ll be showing Christmas favourites such as Home Alone, Elf and The Nightmare Before Christmas on our big screen. In other exciting events, we’ve combined dancing and snowball fights all into one awesome event! Grab your silent disco headphones and wait until the sound of the signal to launch your snowballs!
It would be criminal to celebrate Christmas without some festive booze!
