Christmas comes early for Kielder Water & Forest Park


Families are being urged to act fast to secure tickets at a hugely popular, festive extravaganza in Northumberland.

Attraction tickets on sale from Monday September 15 2014.

Tickets for Kielder Winter Wonderland, at Kielder Water & Forest Park will go on sale from 10am on Monday September 15, 2014.

The unique, theatrical Christmas experience has been a sell-out for the last ten years and event organisers, Northumbrian Water, are urging people to book quickly to avoid missing out.

Running every weekend from Saturday November 15, until Sunday December 21 and including Monday December 22, Kielder’s spectacular forest will be transformed once again into an enchanted Winter Wonderland, full of festive surprises and attractions for the whole family.

Kevin Hudson, Customer Experience Manager at Northumbrian Water, which organises the event in partnership with Dodgy Clutch Theatre Company, said: “Kielder Winter Wonderland is one of the most popular events in the calendar at Kielder Water & Forest Park and remains a firm favourite with families visiting the Park year after year. Visitors must pre-book and be aware that tickets are not available on site.”

A day ticket to Winter Wonderland gives access to a whole host of activities and surprises. Visitors will join Santa’s elves in their magical workshop before Mrs Christmas and her friends guide guests through the enchanted forest on to the Christmas Theatre shows.

Kevin added: “The day isn’t complete without a visit to Father Christmas’ woodland hideaway, deep in the forest with elves to guide you and Santa’s friends to entertain along the way. It’s a magical and memorable day out for everyone.”
The whole family will get gifts to take home from their festive day, plus the chance to take part in skating, snow tubing and a visit to Snowy Owl and friends at the Birds of Prey Centre.
