Enter Archerfield’s mystical fairy trail and get lost in a world of fairies, elves and folklore. There is no time more magical than Christmas and New Year for the forest folk as they transform their woodland home into a shimmering, spellbinding, spectacle! Welcome to a place where wishes come true, resolutions are made and magical things happen. The elves and fairies invite you to explore their forest village and get lost in a world of bright lights, dancing forest folk and beautiful woodland. With live performers and lighting design from JMP Productions, whose recent credits include the opening of The Queensferry Crossing, The Enchanted Castle and Snowdrops by Starlight, you do not want to miss East Lothian's largest scale Christmas event.

The experience begins with a self-led torch-lit adventure from the pond, down the twinkling willow walk and onto the Fairy Trail (torches will be available to borrow for a £3 deposit, to buy for £3 or you are welcome to bring your own). Once on The Fairy Trail you will enter their magical world where you can spot fairies and elves, explore their village and if you're really lucky you might even catch a glimpse of the fairy disco! At The Fairy Wishing Frame, designed by the incredible Projector Club, you will be able to make a special wish at this interactive, animated installation.

If that's not enough The Winter Barn, our festive open-air hangout in the 18th century walled garden, is the perfect place to meet for a mulled cider, hot chocolate, hearty hot food or even pick up your Christmas tree. Stay warm next to one of our firepits beneath the twinkling lights and get into the festive spirit. We’ll be joined by Thistly Cross Cider, Haggisman, Tastes Like Crepe, Mimi's Bakehouse, SugarDaddy's and more TBC. The Winter Barn is open daily from 12 - 8.30pm on weekends and during the school Christmas holidays (3 - 8.30pm at all other times during A Christmas Fairy Trail). No tickets are required and entry is free.

Tickets for A Christmas Fairy Trail can only be purchased online although any unsold tickets will be available on the day at the venue. For general enquiries please call 01620 388 588 or email
