Visit Santa Claus at Festina Lente every weekend between Sat 3rd December 2022 and Sunday 17th December 2022 between 10.00 am and 4.00pm!

This year Festina Lente welcomes Santa Claus & The Ponies to Festina Lente.

During you visit to Santa at Festina Lente you will get to meet Santa Claus, make your wish on the Wishing Tree, enjoy marsh mallows and hot chocolate……….and of course a visit to Santa would not be complete without visiting Siofra, Alanna, Bob and Sean – Santa’s little ponies!

As places are limited early booking is advised as we cannot delay Santa Claus during his busiest time of the year!!

We look forward to welcoming everyone for Festive Fun!!

We do NOT charge parents/guardians (only for the child visiting), and we hope that this makes Christmas a little easier on the pocket.

For families who have children with additional needs, please feel free to let us know in advance so we can provide additional support if necessary to ensure a positive experience for all.

As we are a charity- we would like to let you know where the money for this event is going…The Equine Facilitated Educational Programme (EFEP)

The EFEP Programme is designed to target the areas of social, emotional and behavioural well-being.

Specifically, the programme addresses a young persons’ self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills and responsible decision making with all equestrian activities mapping onto these domains. Festina Lente works with a number of DEIS primary school in the north Wicklow and Dun Laoghaire Rathdown areas providing this service five mornings of the week.

Festina Lente does not charge for this particular programme.
