Farm offering an illuminating experience

First published in News by

VISITORS to a farm park for disabled children in the Cotswolds will be in for an illuminating experience over the next two months.

Fairytale Farm, just outside Chipping Norton, will be illuminating its popular Enchanted Walk every Saturday and Sunday during September and October and will be staying open until two hours after dusk.

The park will be open all day as normal, but when daylight fades the entire Enchanted Walk will become a magical wonderland of fairy lights.

Attractions including the Mermaid Garden, Giant's Camera, The Extinct Band, Giant Party Poppers, and Light Fountains will be a blaze of colour and the Hex Water Fountain will be lit in ever-changing colours.

Park owner, Nick Laister, said the illuminations proved a big success when they were introduced last year for the first time.

"Last year we illuminated our Enchanted Walk for the first time as the nights drew in during September and October and the feedback from our visitors was amazing," he said.

"So this year, we are doing it again, but with some new additions.

"We have a new mermaid, who lights up internally and looks beautiful, and our Sleeping Beauty and Hansel and Gretel displays will excite children.

"The whole farm will be open as normal in the day, but as soon as the light fades, we switch on the lights and create a whole new experience."

Normal admission prices apply during the day, and visitors can stay on and watch the lights in the evening. For visitors arriving after 5pm, there will be a discounted entry price of £2 for adults and £1.75 for children and senior citizens, which will allow access to all the sections of the farm until dusk, and the illuminated sensory trail after dusk.

Fairytale Farm is open every day until 2 November with the illuminations being switched on every Saturday and Sunday at dusk.
