Tickets for this event have now sold out.

This is a pre-booked event only.

As we had to cancel our Santa Specials this year due to Covid-19, we’ve been busy planning an alternative event for you – Mr Ribble’s Festive Trains!
A brilliant trip out to get into the festive spirit for the build up to Christmas. On arrival our staff will check your tickets and direct you through our Gift Shop to our Museum. Once into the museum one of Santa’s elves will hand the children their Festive pack (which includes a small gift and fun activities to do during your visit). The Museum is decorated better than ever before with a fabulous light display put together by our volunteers and Santa’s elves have taken over our museum! Our famous Elf trail is back for all the family to get involved with – can you help Santa find all the elves? When you have been around our museum, it will be time for you to travel on Mr Ribble’s Festive Train, decorated for the holiday season.
