Eden Project Introduces Mother Christmas to Tackle Gender Inequality


The Eden Project has recently introduced a new edition to the festive team, Mother Christmas! She works as a mechanic for Santa’s sleigh, to ensure a safe trip on 25th. The Eden Project released a video to introduce her, where she can be seen hard at work while Santa makes her a cup of tea.

Eden spokesperson said: "Mother Christmas is a practical, no-nonsense addition to Eden's Father Christmas experience, complementing the cheekiness of the elves and the jollity of Santa himself. 

"She is a vital cog in the yuletide machine and works hard with Father Christmas and the elves to make sure the season goes smoothly. Each member of the team brings their unique skills and Christmas spirit to the Eden grotto.

"The Father Christmas experience is part of Eden's festival of Christmas, which also features the project’s biggest ever Christmas music programme, starting on November 30, beautiful lighting, a giant Christmas tree, Luke Jerram's stunning Gaia Earth installation and a Christmas jumper swap shop."

Sessions with Santa are running from November 30 to Christmas Eve, however, booking is a must as many slots are already full!

The Eden Project are also running more relaxed slots for children with autism or learning difficulties who might enjoy the experience more while it’s a little quieter and less busy.

You can receive 10% off ticket prices if you book online at least one day before your visit here.
