The Eden Project

It’s what all of the kids have been waiting for, meeting the big man. Father Christmas is in town and will be at Eden up until Christmas Eve, ready to welcome everyone in! But you won’t just be meeting him, you can help him find the essential ingredients within the Biome for his reindeer cubs!

You’ll find all kinds of discovery as you make your way around the gardens of the Biomes. Meet the reindeers and the friendly elves in Father Christmas’ cosy tent. It will be filled with festive creations, with letters piling up, a wrapping station and a magic reindeer food machine! Wind down with Father Christmas while you listen to a story by the fire and of course, every child will have their special moment with him.

Eden has also introduced relaxed performances by teaming up with Sensory Trust. The Eden Project welcomes audience members who would benefit from a more informal experience, such as those with autism and communication needs. Make sure you book your tickets to ensure you get to meet the man in red!

Cornish theatre company WildWorks will be making an appearance this season. They’ll be injecting that extra bit of sparkle into your Christmas, jammed packed with live performances and music.

Feel enchanted as you watch the show within the humid tropics of the Rainforest Biome, which has been wonderfully transformed into a Yule-tide-Ark-ive. Expect a memorable family experience, with amazing soundscapes alongside beautiful lighting. You can watch the magic of WildWorks up until December 16th.
