The hugely popular Sewerby Winter Woodland will return to Sewerby Hall and Gardens this Christmas, from 9 – 23 December.
An all new spectacular display of lights, sounds and special effects will bring the grounds to life for a great evening out this festive season.
After its successful launch in 2021, when over 12,000 people visited the grounds for the sell-out event, this year’s Sewerby Winter Woodland will include a new theme -a chance to meet the Winter Woodland Elves in their natural habitat!
The Winter Woodland Elves are causing mischief – tinkering with lights and sound to create a stunning party atmosphere in the woods, with the emphasis firmly on fun. It will be an opportunity to come and enjoy the woods on a free -flowing walk, lit up with stunning displays of colour, and to see what the woodland elves get up to outside of the toymakers’ workshop – playing, crafting, and dancing with the reindeer.
The house itself will be filled with Christmas decorations, lights and trees, and the cheeky elves will be hiding in the rooms. There will also be a new exhibition in the house, ‘Elves – not just for Christmas’.
An all -new food and drink area will be created, with a large marquee in the courtyard area. Food will be supplied from Stables Pizza Company and the Clock Tower CafÃ©. The Marquee will house a licenced bar, from Louisiana bars.
There will be six sessions each evening. Arrival times will be 4.30pm-5pm; 5pm-5.30pm; 5.30pm-6pm; 6pm-6.30pm; 6.30pm-7pm; and 7pm-7.30pm. The only exception to this schedule will be on Monday 12 December, when there will be relaxed performances at 4.30pm and 5pm, with no 5.30pm slot that evening, and the usual sessions at 6pm, 6.30pm and 7pm. Relaxed performances will feature reduced volume, no haze or smoke machines, and no fire in the finale.
Priority tickets for annual pass members and members of Bridlington Spa will go on sale online on Tuesday, 28 June and will go on general sale online on Wednesday, 29 June. Tickets will cost: Adults £15; Child £9; Family (2 adults +2 children) £40; Under 3s free of charge (ticket not required).
Councillor Mike Medini, portfolio holder for cultural and leisure assets, said : “The runaway success of this great event in 2021 means that we are able to bring it back again this year, even better! I am really looking forward to another very popular Christmas event, and would advise our customers to book early!”
Marie Gascoigne, general manager, Sewerby Hall and Gardens, added: “We cannot wait for the 2022 version of this amazing event, and I know it will be every bit as stunning, exciting and enjoyable as last year’s! What a great way to get into the Christmas spirit!”
