Xmas Staff

We are seeking Xmas casual staff to work during the Bird Parks events in the lead up to Xmas.  The times and dates that you would be required to work are below.  We are seeking enthusiastic and hard working staff to work during this very popular and busy period. 

The events include a fabulous lighting display, Santa in his grotto and a variety of attractions and activities in the marquees. 

Staff are sort for a variety of positions that are involved with running the events and dealing with the general public. Applicants should therefore be comfortable in a customer facing situation and should be generally fit as this is an outdoor event in December in a Cotswold valley that includes some walking up and down slopes!

If you think that this is something you would like to discuss further please telephone Melanie on 01452 812727 or emailThis email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Wrap up warm, this is an outdoor event!
Visit the Bird and Deer Park for the exceptional Winter Wonderland and make it into a Christmas to remember! The Park has it's own resident Reindeer, Rudolf, Prancer and Comet who reside all year round, who knows,  this may be the only place in the county to see real reindeer this Christmas?

Visitors will be able to look out over the stunning valley of magical Christmas lighting from the new Visitor Centre balconies where the trees and lakes will be flooded with coloured lighting after dusk, creating spectacular effects.


Santa will be in his hand crafted sleigh,  'pulled' by the famous horse-shoe Reindeer. He will be giving the children a Christmas gift in the beautifully decorated grotto, adorned with stunning decorations, including little birds and animals that will remind you exactly where you are! It should be noted that Santa is particularly busy at this time of year so this year we will provide a special  'Santa's waiting room' where families can watch short xmas films whilst they queue for Santa!  Face Painters will be available and children can choose their own design, for which there is an additional charge of £3.  Childrens gifts will not be wrapped due to the potental harm that wrapping paper can cause to the birds and deer.

Professional photographers will take shots of the children & groups with Santa and the pictures will be available for purchase at £7.00 for 1, £20 for 3 or £25 for 4 prints. Personal photographs may not be taken in Santa's grotto.


Other attractions will include a nativity scene in the Wendy House and a Christmas Fairy.

Children under one year old are free to these events.  Children from one year old to fifteen years old inclusive pay the standard junior rate.  Sixteen years old and above pay the adult rate. 

If you would prefer a private Xmas party then please contact the Bird Park on 01452 812727 for details.

Please note that tickets are non refundable but dates may be exchanged up to 24 hours in advance.  No other offers or promotions are applicable to WInter Wonderland.

Last visit to Santa 5:30pm
