As some of you may have noticed, over the August Bank Holiday we held a Magical Unicorn weekend, involving unicorn grooming, a magical fairy door trail, and glitter tattoos by our very own Princess! This must have gone down quite well with everyone, as we recorded our best ever audience numbers and revenue figures for an August Bank Holiday Weekend in our 21-year history! We posted a staggering 69% income increase and 61.5% attendance rise compared to the same time last year, so we think we might be onto a winner here!
“Whitehouse Farm is just going from strength-to-strength,” said Karen Lovatt, who is our Operations Director here at the farm.
We worked with local firm KL Pony Therapy to bring the ‘Magical Unicorn Weekend’ to life. They provide therapy ponies to events and places like care homes and hospitals.
Karen added: “Our Magical Unicorn Weekend just proves how the Farm is becoming a must visit attraction for families all year round. The themed events are massive hits as they capture the imagination of visitors and work to the strengths of the site.
“We are proud to have a unique experience that people are coming back to enjoy in their droves, time and time again. Whether it’s for a school’s education programme or to see Santa and his elves at Christmas. Long may it continue!”
Our next big event is Jurassic Farm on 22nd and 23rd September, where people can meet the roar-some T-Rex and join in with many exciting prehistoric activities- hopefully we'll see some of you there!
