Kielder’s magical forest landscape is set to be transformed into an enchanted Winter Wonderland this winter, full of surprises and attractions for the whole family. Advice from event organisers, Northumbrian Water, is ‘book now so you don’t miss out’.
Tickets for a unique Santa experience in the north east will go on sale on Friday 28 September at 10am.
One of the most popular events in the calendar at Kielder Water & Forest Park, Kielder Winter Wonderland is a day-long celebration of all things Christmas and a firm favourite for families visiting the Park year after year.
The popular event sells out every year. Kevin Hudson, leisure manager at Northumbrian Water, that organizes the event with Dodgy Clutch Theatre Company, said: “Because this is such a popular event at Kielder Water & Forest Park, visitors must pre-book and be aware that tickets are not available on site”.
A day pass to Winter Wonderland gives access to a whole host of activities. In the Elves’ Workshop visitors will join Santa’s elves in their enchanted barn and help them to prepare for the big day by becoming toy makers. Mrs Christmas and her friends take visitors on a journey through the enchanted forest and there is also a Christmas Theatre show.
Kevin added: “The day isn’t complete without a visit to Santa’s Secret Hideaway, deep in the woods with elves to guide you and one of Santa’s festive friends on hand to entertain along the way. For those who have been before we have a new activity for 2012; I can’t say too much but the forest Beavers have some surprises in store.”
With gifts for the whole family to take home, skating and snow tubing and the chance to visit Snowy Owl and friends at the Birds of Prey Centre, Kielder Winter Wonderland is an unforgettable action packed day out.
