Admission – this year we have opted not to charge entry, instead hoping that families will be generous when inside the fair. We have an ambitious target of £7000 to raise for much needed materials for the children.
Food – we are very lucky to have Papa Johns supplying pizzas again this year. We buy these at cost to sell to you at a low price. We will also have a hot dog stand this year with vegetarian options available. There will be refreshments to buy with the added bonus of free mince pies with your purchase. We are also lucky to have a warming mulled cider/apple juice stall to get you into the mood.
Signing Stories – we are delighted to welcome one of our very own Sciennes parents to introduce the children and their families to storytelling using Signalong. Signalong is a type of sign language which uses both sign language and speech to communicate with children and adults who may have a speech, language and/or communication difficulty. If you are interested in learning more then check out the official website: Signalong
‘Elfridges? – new for this year is our secret gift room named ‘Elfridges. This is a room where no adults are allowed. The children pay £2 to enter and choose a gift from our store for a loved one (parents, grandparents, friends). Our elves wrap the gift and label it so the child is ready to present their gift to the recipient without them knowing what’s in it.
Mrs Claus’ Kitchen – Mrs Claus will be on hand to help the children decorate some festive biscuits. The biscuits are then wrapped in a festive gift bag for the children to take home (if they make it to the bag without getting eaten).
Magic Show – we are delighted to welcome back a Sciennes favourite, Gordon. There are two slots available to book for a 30-40 minute show. The children will receive a magic set as a gift to take home to hone their skills as mini magicians. This must be booked in advance on ParentPay, as there is limited capacity for each slot.
Festive Cinema Shorts – we hope that the children will enjoy visiting our cinema where they can take part in themed activities and enjoy a bag of popcorn. This also gives parents a chance to browse the stalls at the fair. This must be booked in advance on ParentPay, as there is limited capacity for each slot.
Circus Skills – Jack Frost will be at our fair this year, welcoming families to our event and to Sciennes if they are visiting from the local community. Jack will be holding two circus skills workshops in the new dining room. This must be booked in advance on ParentPay, as there is limited capacity for each slot.
Craft Room – We will have a whole range of winter crafts available for the children (and adults if they wish) to do on the day. We’ll be making pine cone bird feeders, decorations and much more.
