This event has now passed. Visit our what's on calendar to view our current events.

Christmas is coming and the magic Christmas fairies have been busy in the park. They have placed Christmas trees, baubles, stockings and a few other Christmassy items for you to have fun with around Haddo Country Park, each one holds the key to a phrase that has to be solved by your Christmas Trail Hunters in order to solve the puzzle and complete the quest! *Parking is included in the ticket price so please do not pay for a ticket* During the month of December there will be puzzles spread around the woods, held within the clutches of beautiful Christmassy items - can your Christmas Trail Hunters solve the puzzles to win a Christmassy sweet treat? A trail hunter pack will be sent to event attendees by email - please print off. There will be various activity sheets to complete prior to coming to Haddo - it is important that all our Trail Hunters hone their skills before taking on the trail and crushing the quest! It is important that all Trail Hunters can participate, so the Christmassy items can be found along the path system. Don't let that lull you into a false sense of security...the puzzles are the tricky bit and each hunter must use their best deciphering skills to win the quest. Once the hunter has finished the trail and solved the quest they can take their completed quest sheet to Mrs Smith's cafe where they will be awarded with a sweet treat - these can only be collected during Mrs Smith's opening hours. The event will be spread over many sessions with limited numbers to ensure social distancing can be adhered to. If you find that there are other hunters at a puzzle please wait for them to leave before you approach. *Adults accompanying children are not required to purchase a ticket* Please dress appropriately - fancy dress is encouraged to make sure the Christmas fairies know who they are dealing with, but most importantly, dress in warm and waterproof clothing. Tickets are non refundable. We look forward to seeing you :-)
