Christmas at Lightwater Valley

Christmas Event


Families can discover a whole host of festive fun as Christmas comes to Lightwater Valley on selected dates from Friday 4th December – Wednesday, 23rd December 2020.

Be enchanted by the fantastical family-friendly Alice in Winterland giant lanterns display as the sun sets over the park.

Embark on a magical journey to meet the Mad Hatter, the Queen of Hearts and, of course, Alice herself as she embarks on her amazing adventure.

Dazzling giant illuminated sculptures will illustrate favourite stories from Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass.

Discover a giant chess board, watch the Mad Hatter prepare for his crazy tea party, marvel at the four-metre tall Alice lantern and come face to face with the infamous Queen of Hearts herself.

Visitors of all ages can follow the luminous trail and immerse themselves in a glowing garden with massive mushrooms, illuminated tulips and even a flamingo or two as the evening becomes curiouser and curiouser…

Families can also enjoy some traditional fairground fun including a spin on the carousel and take to the night sky on the Skyrider.

New for 2020, families can enjoy a special Christmas Magic Puppet Show featuring Santa and go on the hunt for the cheeky missing elves as they cause mischief around the park.

Food and drink will be on offer so that visitors can indulge in a seasonal glass of something tasty as well as scrumptious treats including waffles and pancakes and bockwurst sausages from the selection of stalls.

Please note - the full theme park will not be open during this event and there is not a santa's grotto.
