Santa’s Flight School

Santa’s Flight School at Atria Watford

Join Santa and Rudolph in our enchanting Christmas adventure. FREE event. Book your tickets HERE

From Saturday 3rd to Friday 23rd December children can interact and bring to life our beautiful, larger-than-life handmade reindeer marionette. Lessons are directed by Santa himself along with his trusted Sky Flight Elves. This unmissable event will truly bring the magic of Christmas to Watford.

Upon arrival, children will enter Santa’s stables and be greeted by Santa and the Sky Flight Elves who will teach them the secrets of reindeer flight. This incredible group experience will take each child on an enchanted journey in which they become the stars of the show, before having the chance to step aboard Santa’s Sleigh and take the reins for themselves.

Once qualified, all Junior Flight Cadets will use their knowledge and magic to guide the stunning reindeer puppet off the ground and into the air.

Children will graduate with a Special Certificate, sealed with the Sky Flight Salute, and will also leave with reindeer food to sprinkle outside on Christmas Eve.

We invite families requiring additional support to book during our final time slots on Sunday Dec 4th, 11th & 18th (15:30) and Monday Dec 5th, 12, & 19th (14:30) when the event will be a little quieter to allow children more time to complete the activity. If you think we need to be aware of any specific additional needs, please contact tickets@bakehousefactory.co.uk so we can make suitable arrangements.

We are really pleased to offer a free event to local families. If you enjoyed your experience why not give back to local families in need by supporting our ‘Give A Gift Appeal’. Simply buy a new children’s gift on your visit and drop in the Giving Box located on the Upper Mall near Apple. Give A Gift appeal supports Watford Mencap and Homestart.
