AN AWARD-WINNING tourist attraction near Whitchurch is celebrating again after its Christmas event won a, award.

Last year BeWILDerwood Cheshire introduced its brand-new Christmas event, A Sparkly Light and Panto Trail.

And now the event - which returns in just a few weeks time - has been won silver at the Best New Event at the UK Theme Park and Attractions Awards.


The BeWILDerwood team said they are very happy that their unique Christmas event has been recognised and awarded.

Author and creator of the BeWILDerwood Parks and Books, Tom Blofeld said: “When we created BeWILDerwood Presents Christmas, we knew we had created something special.

“It was different to other Christmas events – not only does the event have all the usual Christmas cheer, but it also has the magic of BeWILDerwood too.

“The feedback we got last year was fantastic, so this award really confirms how magical the event is and we’re absolutely thrilled.”

BeWILDerwood Presents Christmas allows visitors to enter the park after dark and venture along a Sparkly Light Trail, spotting all your favourite characters along the way.

As well as silly snowmen, Christmas crackers, a giant Christmas pudding, plus lots, lots more.

There's also a mini BeWILDermas Pantomime full of festive cheer and fun for the whole family to enjoy.

Tom added: “We’re so excited to bring the event back again for the second year and we’re working on a few new surprises too.

“This wonderful event is also coming to our Norfolk Park this year.

“We put tickets on sale a lot earlier this year and we’ve been amazed by the demand already.

“So, we really do recommend booking early as we’re pretty sure the event will sell out as we get a little closer.”

The event is set to take place from December 2 until December 23 and has arrival timeslots from 4pm – 6pm.

Prices start at £15.50 per person and tickets for the event are available to purchase on the BeWILDerwood website – but as expected, they are already limited.
