Santa Specials 2020

UPDATE 13/10/2020



The BMES team have been working to provide a safe Santa experience for this coming Christmas. We had more or less everything in place to achieve this, and booking was going to open on our website tomorrow.

However, yesterday’s latest assessment of the Covid situation and the government’s announcement of their new tiered restrictions, introduces a level of uncertainty that we have not experienced during the summer. It seems highly likely that we could well have been taking your booking and payment over the next couple of weeks only to find later that we are forced to cancel the event, possibly at very short notice. We also feel that it would not be fair to you and your children to announce that Santa was coming and subsequently have to tell you that he had changed his mind.


Therefore, we really are very sorry to tell you that after a great deal of discussion, we have concluded that we cannot go ahead with Santa Specials this year.

We have been running Santa Specials for many years and it is a highlight for the club. Seeing the look of excitement and joy on the faces of both the children and their parents is something we all look forward to. So, we are as sorry as we know you must be, to have to cancel, but after much deliberation we feel this is the best and safest option.

We realise that you will be disappointed to hear this, and we too are greatly disappointed that we cannot run the Santa Specials this year. We hope you will understand our reasons and that you will be back to join us when we run Santa Specials 2021.


In the meantime, we sincerely hope that you all have a lovely Christmas and that you stay safe and well. 


Finally, we would like to thank you for your continued support during the last year, without it we would no longer be able to run the railway.


Best Wishes,


Santa’s Little Helper & the BMES Team
