In the Garden Elves entertain with music and fun whilst in the Toy Workshop they will be capturing a moment of tropical, musical, winter sun. Roll Up, Roll Up as the doors open on Whippersnappers Vintage Cinema Club

As we move towards a sparkling, frosty Christmas Eve enjoy the sights and fine warming aromas of fresh gingerbread baking in Mrs Claus's Christmas kitchen. Every child will learn to decorate their own Traditional Gingerbread Christmas Tree decorations.

Next an invitation to visit Santa's Class Room where every child is a star. Lit with 100 sparkling fairy lights, with twinkling musical notes and fine aromas of fresh gingerbread baking in Mrs Claus's Christmas kitchen the children will learn to decorate Traditional Gingerbread Christmas Tree decorations.

Follow Santa's Sooty Footprints upstairs to the Wonderland Waiting Room to meet Moth Starfrost* - the Christmas Tree Fairy. While she busies herself painting faces with fairy dust children and grown-ups have a chance to enjoy a traditional Christmas sing-a long. Santa's Elf keeps busy rushing to and fro ringing a bell to call each child into Santa's Grotto. Meeting the big man in red, the children hang their Christmas Wishes on his Tree, and with special Santa words of wisdom receive a magical present.

Then it's down the stairs to our Christmas Arts & Crafts/Toy Shop - clutching goodie bags the children collect their Gingerbread Christmas Tree decorations and family Photograph - a special memory of their visit.

Your Whippersnapper Winter Wonderland experience will last one hour.

*Moth Starfrost lives close to caverns and stalactite grottoes and can only be seen during the first snow of winter. In her handsome moth’s dust wings she will be listening out for Christmas wishes and casting the occasional magical spell.

5 star review in Timeout magazine!

Visit Santa's Grotto in Dulwich Park and enjoy Whippersnappers Winter Wonderland. This is a 2017 Christmas event organized and managed by the Whippersnappers organization. Whippersnappers were founded in 1994 and are a not-for-profit company which has been successfully delivering theatre, music, sports and arts projects for over 20 years.

2017 is the first time we have increased our Winter Wonderland ticket price since we opened in 2012. This year we will also be increasing the hourly rate of our staff wages to reflect their London living costs.
