The Storybarn’s Christmas Grotto

Created by the team behind Treasure Island at Liverpool ONE, The Storybarn’s Christmas Grotto is an immersive experience for the whole family.

Your journey begins in The Reader Gallery with a visit to the Winter Forest where you’ll discover the secret entrance to the Grotto.

You’ll meet the elves who, after checking you’re on the Nice List, will introduce you to Father Christmas himself!

There will be plenty of time to take photographs, so make sure you bring along a camera.

Why not extend your visit to Calderstones? Guests of Father Christmas will receive 20% off at The Reader Café and Ice Cream Parlour, while the kids enjoy free Christmas crafting and festive films.

How it works

Tickets cost £10 per child. Each child visiting Father Christmas will receive a take-home gift from the Walker Books’ festive bookshelf worth at least £4.99.
