William’s Christmas Experience at William’s Den

Award-winning children’s adventure play attraction, William’s Den, is planning show-stopping days out this December to help all the family get into the festive spirit. Based in East Yorkshire between York, Beverley and Hull, William’s Den has released tickets for William’s Christmas Experience at the Den.

William’s Christmas Experience will take place every Saturday and Sunday in December from 2nd to 24th. The team have been planning the festivities for many months, bringing back the popular activities from 2023 along with some new arrivals aimed at children and grown-ups of all ages.

William’s Christmas Experience will feature a brand-new Christmas Show starring Father Christmas. The show has been created by the Den’s new Creative Director, Carla Starkey, and features performances from three local actors alongside Father Christmas himself! There’s even an opportunity for families to meet & get a photo with the great man after the show.  

For the first time, William’s Den will also host a SEND (Special Education Needs & Disability) relaxed performance of its Christmas Show on Saturday 2 December at 2:30pm. It will be the same as other performances but with lower sensory intensity for visitors who would benefit from a more informal environment and are free to move around during the show. The relaxed performance also includes a British Sign Language Interpreter.

As well as the six show performances each day, helped by Mother Christmas and the elves, every child who visits can pick an early Christmas present from the Toy Shop to take home. And, back by popular demand, families can join Bauble our French Baker to decorate a festive gingerbread, toast marshmallows around the firepit, tackle the reindeer quiz trail and enjoy unlimited all-day play inside and outside at William’s Den. 

For those looking to put the cherry on top of the cake of their festive day out, you can upgrade your visit to craft a Christmas bauble and capture a festive family photo in the Den’s new giant snow globe!

Tickets for William’s Christmas Experience have been frozen at 2022’s prices, £29.95 for children and £19.95 for adults. They are available to book now on the William’s Den website www.williamsden.co.uk/christmas-experience

Tor Carver, who created William’s Den with her husband, Christian, said:

“Christmas is all about spending time with loved ones and making precious memories together as a family. We’ve put our heart and soul into planning another special Christmas here, creating experiences to remember and making sure there’s so much to do that you can be here all day! We can’t wait for Father Christmas to arrive and to welcome more families this December.”

William’s Den were proud winners of Remarkable Visitor Attraction of the Year this month at the Remarkable East Yorkshire Tourism Awards, an accolade they have received for the second year running.
