Butser Ancient Farm - Christmas at Butser Ancient Farm

  • Saturnalia: Friday 16 December at 16.00

  • Tales of Winter Magic: Monday 19 December at 14.00 

Christmas is a magical time of year and yet with modern technology and commercialisation all too often families feel the pressure of rushing from one thing to the next, without even stopping to think or appreciate each other.

Well at Butser Ancient Farm we invite you to step back in time and come to the Tales of Winter Magic event to enjoy a more relaxed Christmas celebration, where the key is spending magical moments together. Sat around a fire, in a roundhouse, with a hot chocolate, wrapped up and cosy listening to Winter Solstice tales. These magical stories will fire your imagination and bring conversation to families for days to come.

Or for something a little more hands on, how about coming to Saturnalia to see how the Romans celebrated Christmas. You can have a go at several activities and see if your family can awaken our Roman God from his Winter sleep. Be careful to follow the clues to get the right answer. Along the way you will play games, enjoy a taste of Roman past and light up the villa creating a wonderful winter atmosphere. 

Each child receives a Christmas present from the farm and friends and family can really enjoy quality time together.  Come and see our piggies, sheep and goats. We are also building a new roundhouse; will we have the roof on before your visit?

Tickets are £12 per child, which includes an accompanying adult. Bookings can be made online, over the phone or in person at the shop.  Saturnalia is at 4pm on Friday 16th December and Tales of Winter Magic is at 2pm on Monday 19th December.  

Tickets can be purchased on line at or by calling 02392 598838.
