Bolesworth has released its first look at its upcoming spectacular Christmas celebrations, with behind-the-scenes photos showing what guests can expect of the festivities, which will run for 28 nights.

On Friday 26th November, Bolesworth Castle & Grounds will become an illuminated winter wonderland as the historic venue switches on its inaugural Christmas lights trail. The sparkling and dazzling display will run until 24th December, allowing visitors to kick off Christmas with an unforgettable after-dark experience.

Running until Christmas Eve, the 1.2-mile magical trail runs along the lakeside and through winding woodland paths and grounds to provide a magical fusion of colours, music and unique experiences.  The event will also offer a laser light show, sparking lights for all the family to enjoy as well as a sculpture trail that showcases some of the best local and nationally recognised artists.

Along the way, visitors will spot real reindeer and enjoy a selection of festive food and drink at the Christmas village or snap up some special gifts from the Christmas market.  There is also a selection of fun fairground rides for all the family to enjoy.

As well as the beautifully lit winter wonderland, there is the chance to visit Father Christmas, at Santa’s Grotto which is available to book as part of your visit. Children can have their photo taken with the special man and leave their Christmas wish list with him ready for his rounds on Christmas Eve.

The Christmas village will also host an all-weather and environmentally friendly synthetic ice-skating rink for the more energetic family members to book. Those wanting to indulge at Christmas can also enjoy the VIP Champagne Island that can be accessed across a bridge while soaking up views of the illuminated Bolesworth Castle.  Cosy blankets and a glowing fire pit are available to help keep visitors warm on the winter nights.

This Christmas Lights Trail Event is the first in a series of new events that will be organised and hosted at Bolesworth Castle. From the young to the old, and dog-friendly too, there will be something for everyone in the coming year, as well as the established events that Bolesworth is well known for, such as CarFest and Bolesworth International Horse Show.

Nina Barbour, Managing Director of Bolesworth, said: “Christmas is such a special time of year and we wanted to kick off the festive season with something magical for everyone to enjoy after such a difficult year for so many.

“The new enchanted Christmas lights trail is the first in our new programme of events that we have lined up and we can’t wait to welcome visitors and to share what will be a truly magical Christmas experience for all.”

The Christmas light trail runs from 26th November to 24th December and tickets are available at www.bolesworth.com/christmas.

Christmas parties are also available at Bolesworth, for work colleagues or friends and family, with après ski themed party nights running for three nights in December. For more information, visit:
