Christmas Sparkle 2014 Update

We are pleased to report that the Christmas Sparkle of 2014 was a resounding success with 173 children plus their families and friends visiting us over the 3 Sundays it ran.

Many lovely, glittery letters were posted to Father Christmas with present requests ranging from a kitten to a robot dog or an Elf!. Hopefully Father Christmas fulfilled as many of the wishes as possible.

We had feedback that the presents given to the children as they left our Top Station were well received plus the mulled wine and mince pies kindly provided by the Friends Of The Babbacombe Cliff Railway and Sainsburys, St Marychurch went down well and not much was left of either!.

Fun At Our First “Sparkle On Sunday”

Sunday 7th December saw the first of our 3 Sundays in December where we ran our “Sparkle On Sunday” Event.

There was an overwhelming response and over 60 children visited us, writing letters to Father Christmas, singing along with our Polar Bear and feeding the reindeer, not to mention having their photo taken in the Sleigh. Accompanying adults also enjoyed the odd mince pie and drink of mulled wine. It was lovely to see so many people enjoying themselves and having fun. The presents for the children as they left also went down very well!

Anyone who missed out on this popular event, please do not worry as it is also running on Sunday 14th and Sunday 21st December from 11am-3pm. Everyone is  guaranteed a warm welcome from the Elves!.




Sparkle on Sundays at Babbacombe Cliff Railway

Bring the little ones along for a ride on Babbacombe Cliff Railway this year and visit the Station down at Oddicombe Beach where they can write their letter to Father Christmas. With elves, a singing polar bear and plenty of festive spirit this lovely event is something a little bit different from what’s on offer elsewhere in the bay.

Both stations and the carriages will be decorated, sparkling and ready for lots of Christmas cheer and the Top Station will once again feature the spectacular Cliff Railway Sleigh and Reindeer, ideal for some very festive photo opportunities before travelling down to the beach.

On arrival at the bottom the children will have a chance to write and post their letter Santa with plenty of help. There will be mulled wine and mince pies for accompanying adults and some special little gifts for the children to take home. The event is being run with the much appreciated support of the Friends of Babbacombe Cliff Railway and the St Marychurch branch of Sainsbury’s.

This special event in the run up to Christmas will run on the three Sundays in the December, the 7th, 14th and 21st from 11am to 3pm. Tickets are just £2.50 per child and the normal £2 return price per adult. The Cliff Railway team look forward to seeing you soon. Oh, and don’t forget your camera for some pictures of the children with the wonderful sleigh.
