FAMILIES are being invited to get into the festive spirit from next month.

More than a million fairy lights, along with laser displays, festive tunes, digital animations, dazzling tunnels, and captivating canopies of lights will transform the autumn woodland into the a world of excitement for all the family.

Kids can meet the Grumpy Grinch at Whoville, pop by and check out the amazing house from Deck the Halls, and then make their way across the high seas and visit Tinkerbell in Neverland. 

And don’t forget to wrap up well as you encounter the Frozen Woodland before meeting Santa Claus, Mrs Claus, and their trusty elves.

Steve Birchall, of The Magical Woodland, said: “Our 2023 Christmas Lights Trail is both enchanting and captivating.

“This year’s installation is the bigger and better than ever before with some wonderful festive scenes and guaranteed fun for all the family. 

“Performance art brings scenes to life adding interactive fun to the occasion, and endless opportunities to take amazing photographs along the way.  

“The food court is a magical oasis with plenty of choice, and our interactive characters add a magical touch to the whole experience.

“If you  are looking for a date night with a difference, a family fun adventure, or a night out with friends or colleagues the only thing you need to bring with you to make unforgettable and instagrammable memories is your imagination.”
