Client news: Farmer creates giant festive extravaganza
FCM is delighted to be offering PR support to a Burton Farmer, who is getting ready to transport visitors to the North Pole, taking his love of Christmas decorations to the extreme - by transforming a 900 square metre barn into a fully immersive Christmas adventure.
Ivor Robinson, who sells Christmas trees from outside his home every year at the entrance to the National Forest Adventure Farm, has always wanted to create the ultimate Christmas display and this year his festive experience is set to take Christmas decorating to the extreme.
Ivor, who started diversifying the farm in 2004 with his brother Tom, unveiled the two-hour long experience for the first time on Saturday 25th November and it will continue to run up to Sunday 24th December.
More than 900 square metres of ply board, 8,000 gingerbread men and 50 real Christmas trees have gone in to creating the North Pole Adventure which includes a Victorian high street at the National Forest Adventure Farm, in Tatenhill.
The event, which immerses the barn in the sights, sounds and smells of Christmas, is the brain child of designer Sam Bott of Unlocked Vision Entertainment, who has also created top attractions at the Westfield shopping Centre in London and Thorpe Park.
The brand new attraction, which has been lovingly handcrafted since the summer, includes an ice cave with Northern Lights display and interactive animatronic polar bear and of course Father Christmas.
“Christmas is such a magical time of year,” said Ivor. “We wanted to create something a bit different which really embraces the spirit of Christmas and we have been so fortunate to work with such a talented team.
“Every part has been carefully thought out to offer the ultimate magical experience and we are so excited to open later this month.”
The North Pole Adventure opens on November 25th and will run on selected days all the way up to 24th December. Tickets start from £16 for children and £9 for adults and include entrance to the farm as well as the two hour fully immersive Christmas trip to the North Pole.
After checking-in for your adventure and collecting your passport, travel to the North Pole through the magic portal. Use special coins to purchase goodies from the sweet shop, help the Elves sort the parcels in the post office, meet Mother Christmas in her kitchen to make gingerbread men, visit the talking Polar Bear in his ice cave featuring the Northern Lights. And of course meet the big man himself – Father Christmas – before selecting a present from the Elves Workshop.
Every detail has been carefully crafted to form the ultimate magical experience.
