Once Upon a Fairy Tale Christmas!


White Post Farm 2022


The Brief

Following the success of 2021’s Christmas Time Tangle, we were delighted to be invited back to White Post Farm to create a new theatrical immersive experience at this much-loved attraction for Christmas 2022! How could we build on the learnings of our first season of working together to come back with an offer which felt even more magical?


What We Did

Our first decision was to decide on a theme and in the spring we agreed on a Fairy Tale Christmas and to turn the events field into the Enchanted Forest for the Christmas season. Next was to create the characters and hand them over to our designer Rob to create the design for the different zones of the Forest. Throughout the Autumn, the build team worked away getting the sets, infrastructure and interactive props ready whilst we built and rehearsed the team of Gretel, Jack’s Mum, Gepetto, the Squirrel, Fairy Godmothers and Father Christmas himself and produced the audio / visual elements of the walkthrough experience!


The Result

The team performed their socks off, rain or shine throughout December including at the newly introduced Twilight sessions, and created a truly magical experience for families from the ground up!


Rusticus Fairy Tale Christmas at White Post Farm

“Absolutely magical experience at White Post Farm Once Upon a Fairy Tale Christmas today. Highly recommended! All the characters were really engaging, the whole thing was so interactive. Santa was one of the most friendly, chatty Santas we’ve had the pleasure of meeting!”
