Christmas Experience

(7 customer reviews)

Categories: ,


The show must go on! 2020 and 2021 have thrown numerous issues at us all, but we are back, and we plan to have a Christmas 2021 to remember for the right reasons! The Party Kingdom Christmas Experience is suitable for buggies, wheelchairs and is inclusive for all.

Take a look at customer photos and reviews from last year.

If you do not receive an email after your booking , do not panic, take a screen shot for your own peace of mind. When you come to visit us, Father Christmas already knows you are attending so you do not need to show any booking confirmation.

Imagine the wonderment on your children’s faces as they enter our magical world of make believe. It is only your own booking group that will go around our Christmas Experience together. Other bookings will be spaced out to make sure that each group has their own individual time with each of our fantastic characters, making this a personal experience for everyone.

*Mother Christmas will make sure you have all you need to complete your magical journey through The Party Kingdom, and your children will help our elves sort out the mischief made by Trixie, our silly elf who often ends up on the naughty list!

The children will be able to make Christmas wishes with the beautiful Christmas Fairy , and take their own magical Christmas wishes home, all ready for Christmas Eve.

Go through our magic wardrobe and you will all enter our fabulous Winter Wonderland. A place where the snow is not cold, and it is not wet, so the kids can enjoy an exciting snowball fight (with their own snowballs) and see if they can throw their snowballs into Marshmellow Man’s mouth?

It is then into the hub of all the Christmas activity. The Elf Workshop! The list on the wall lets our elves know who is on the good list. If your children find their names on the wall, they can choose an arts & craft from the workshop elf to take home and complete.

But, how is the Good Girl & Boy List updated? Find out how the Magical Owls get all the information about your children throughout the year, and regularly update Father Christmas. You may even get a chance to see an ‘Owl Update’ arrive if you are very lucky!

With an extra bit of magic, the magic spell will work and allow your group into the grotto area where they will see Father Christmas.  Before you see the big man, your child can find their very own Santa letter from the most recent delivery (please read our FAQ on this)  Once they have found it, they will be able to take it in to Father Christmas (Your entire booking will need to go in to see Father Christmas together, if you want to split, you will need to book 2 booking slots. Father Christmas will chat to your children about what they want for Christmas, and their latest owl update.

**Please Note – We have an independent professional photographer available to take a family photograph in the grotto, this is NOT included in the price for this year’s event and photographs can be purchased on the day using contactless payments.

It is then on to the Elf Post Office, where the presents are wrapped and ready to be sent out to the Good Girls & Boys. Your children will be able to choose which present they would like to be delivered to them down the shoot!

Will you find Trixie on your travels???

Our shop is at the end where you will able to find cost effective mementos of your visit to us

Please bring a bag as you will collect a few things on your magical journey

This year’s Christmas Experience will take about 60 minutes approximately. You can take your own photographs throughout the experience. We ask you to send us your pictures, and post with the #PartyKingdomEssex on all your social media – all reviews are in with a chance of wining a child’s ticket for next year. We will chose 10 lucky winners on the 1st Feb 2022, so make sure your reviews are posted by then!!!

Due to limited car parking, we ask you to attend in as few as cars as you possibly can as  Father Christmas takes up a lot of room with his sleigh and reindeer!

We do ask a lot of information about the children you are bringing to the Experience. Depending  which event you have booked, will depend on what pieces of information we use to make your experience the best it can be. As a minimum, we need your child’s name and age, the rest is optional.

Adult tickets can be purchased for children aged 13, and over, if they are on a booking that includes at least 1 full paying child, and 1 adult over the age of 18. The 13 plus child would not receive a present etc. If they do require the present, please purchase a child’s ticket.

Please choose a time slot that has enough tickets for every one who is attending. When tickets are getting low, the number left will be visible. If no number is showing it means that there is still a lot of tickets available at that time slot.

Find us at Smithfields Nursery, Woodham Road, Battlesbridge, SS11 7QW

If you have any questions, please check our FAQs first, or, if they do not help, please message us on our Facebook page.

    Absolutely brilliant. We go back year after year. A truly magical experience enjoyed by myself and my little girl

    We have been to many large Christmas Experiences, and I wasn’t sure what to expect here. I need not have been concerned! It was amazing from start to finish. My older son is autistic so I worry sometimes that he will not be able to do some experiences or sit still for stories etc. I have to say this is so hands on and we were kept moving throughout without being rushed, with enough time on every scene to keep his interest and join in with the elves! Very interactive and lots of fun games and the snow part was so much fun! Presents galore, at all different stages. Please remember to take your kids letters as their faces when they spot them is absolutely incredible as they recognise their letters. The elves were awesome throughout and the Santa looked amazing! Photos were fab and it was all so reasonably priced I kept thinking that’s it now, that’s it… and it went on and on it was definitely value for money! A calm wonderful evening out. 2 extremely happy boys equals an ecstatic mummy!!!

    Amazing Experience, and worth every penny! My 2 boys loved it they were entertained for start to finish. The thought and effort that went into the whole experience was truly amazing. You will not be disappointed.

  4. Christine Clark

    It was AMAZING I can only confirm What David the previous reviewer put. He is so right. my granddaughter was entertained by the Elves from start to finish. You wouldn’t be entertained any better if you went up to the west end. There was no pressure to have photos and could take photos as you went round. Father Christmas as really lovely and very thoughtful asking if it was okay to give my granddaughter a high five which she thought was brilliant doing that with Father Christmas and also asked if it was okay to put an arm round her shoulders for a photo with her.
    I have to say the photo on her own and our family photo with him were the best we have ever had. It was an all round brilliant experience for the whole family.

    After seeing reviews about queues I was debating cancelling especially with a 1 year old around dinner time!
    However as the customer service and communication has been amazing throughout updates with staff illnesses etc we choose to go. I can see why as the elves (staff Illness) was important but they were all amazing.
    I am so glad we did not cancel. We have done many experiences but this has been the best one yet so much so my daughter asked if we can book again for next year already. There was surprise after surprise and just overall amazing. I still have snow over the buggy and in our hair 🙂
    Please don’t be put off by peoples comments of queues and moaning comments.

  6. Charlotte Rogers

    Absolutely amazing! A fantastic Christmas experience from start to finish, cannot recommend enough. Around every corner there are more and more surprises and fun for the children, every time we thought we were near the end, there was something else going on! The elves and the big man himself were amazing with the children, all in character the whole time making the whole experience come to life! The elves were full of energy and thoroughly entertaining! Our favourite bit was winter wonderland, throwing snowballs and playing in the snow!
    The Party Kingdom is amazing and wouldn’t go anywhere else!

  7. Daisy Covington

    Absolutely amazing from start to finish!
    The elf’s were so lovely and entertaining the whole way round.
    Father Christmas took his time talking to my son and was happy to take pictures he was the real deal my little boy loved it as did we.
    We have been to lots of Christmasy places but this was the best by far so magical for both children and the adults.
    Can not wait to go back next year I would highly recommend!
