Santa Special

Santa Special – 2015

The Yorkshire Museum of Farming is once again hosting it’s annual Christmas event: The Santa Special!  Enjoy a fun family day out this December, and see our Viking Village transformed into a magical winter wonderland.

We have lots going on! You can start by taking a guided tour around Santa’s village, led by our chief elf – the infamous, mischievous Bauble!  With Bauble as your guide, wander around the festive village and see all the preparations for Christmas taking place. Take a peek in Santa’s house and maybe even visit the elves’ parcel despatch  workshop.  The big news this year is that the elves are planning their own Christmas Pantomime and are busy auditioning for the starring roles! Watch out Bauble – “They’re behind you!”

But the festive fun doesn’t end there – you can also take a ride on Murton’s very own railway, where all the children can meet Santa, and receive an early Christmas present. Meanwhile adults can cosy up in our café and enjoy a complimentary glass of sherry.

A range of hot and cold snacks and drinks will be available on site from two outlets operated by Cottage Catering (

The Santa Special will be running on these dates – No booking required!
