Santa's Wish at Cardiff Castle

Santa’s Wish is one of three shows being staged in the first ever Cardiff Castle Christmas Festival.

Performed in the beautiful and intimate space of a Spiegeltent within the grounds of Cardiff Castle, this heart-warming family musical adventure, enriched with original songs, immersive storytelling and a sprinkling of circus magic is guaranteed to leave the whole family bursting with festive joy and happiness.

Santa’s Wish tells the enchanting story of Snowflake and her journey to becoming one of Santa's elves.

Landing on the edge of the warming ice cap, Snowflake melts into the ocean and travels on an extraordinary and vibrant journey around the world as she struggles to make it back to the North Pole and reach Santa Claus. On her journey, she meets various characters, including a wonderful young lady, Lily, whose mission is to spread joy at Christmas time.

The Cardiff Castle Christmas Festival is a spectacular new entertainment attraction being staged inside a beautiful 548-seat Fortuna Spiegeltent in the grounds of Cardiff Castle. Adding to the festive experience, outside the Spiegeltent on the Castle lawn will be a village area with seasonal artisan street food and drink stalls, serving warming drinks such as gluhwein, spiced cider, and hot chocolate, while a sizzling sausage stall will tickle the taste buds with its bratwurst, pizzas, and burgers.
