With special guest - the Lord Mayor of Canterbury

Wildwood Trust will be open late for an evening of Festive Fun including live music, craft stalls and the Wildwood Grand Christmas Raffle - to be drawn by the Lord Mayor of Canterbury.

All proceeds from the event will go towards Wildwood's Pine Marten Appeal to build new pine marten breeding enclosures at Wildwood.

The fun starts at 4pm with a mini Christmas market selling a range of local crafts and produce, with Santa's grotto at the centre of a woodland wonderland area, lit with fairy lights, lanterns and open fires for the evening entertainment.

The Wildwood raffle, featuring prizes donated by local businesses and attractions, will be drawn by the Lord Mayor at 5pm. The prize list includes Wildwood zoo keeper for a day, DFDS ferry crossing, dinner at the Michael Caines Restaurant in Canterbury, go-karting at Buckmore Park, a family ticket to Leeds Castle and a family ticket to the Cinderella pantomime at Theatre Royal, Margate. There will also be the chance to win toys and games in the Wildwood Children's tombola; all prizes donated by suppliers to the Wildwood shop.

Other evening entertainment will include live music from local bands, candle-lit walking tours to see Wildwood's reindeer, a static birds of prey display by Falconry South East, Christmas crafts and the chance for children to write and post their letters to Santa.

About Wildwood
Wildwood is a unique wildlife park and conservation charity where you can see British Wildlife past and present, set in 40 acres of stunning ancient woodland. Wildwood offers its members and visitors a truly inspirational way to learn about the natural history of Britain by actually seeing the wildlife that once lived here, like the wolf, beaver, red squirrel, bison, elk, wild boar and many more. Our conservation projects include working to save red squirrels, hazel dormice, water voles as well as breeding pine martens, Scottish wildcats and beaver. Wildwood also actively promotes conservation grazing projects by donating herds of wild horses to act as natural habitat managers on nature reserves to improve biodiversity.
