On 6th November, Woburn Forest will be transformed into an enchanting Winter Wonderland for the very first time. Winter Wonderland has been a festive favourite at Center Parcs Villages for many years, welcoming more than 190,000 guests each year.
There will be many of the usual family activities available as well as lots of seasonal activities to get families into the Christmas spirit. At Woburn Forest this year, families will be able to visit Santa in his Woodland Workshop, see the reindeer, design their own Christmas stocking, join the Elf Academy, enjoy a festive carriage ride or take part in the many craft activities in the Activity Den. Whilst you can’t guarantee there will be a white Christmas, there will certainly be a sprinkling of snow.
Wayne Matton, Woburn Forest General Manager said:
“We have had an amazing first year of breaks and we’re thrilled to be able to bring Winter Wonderland to Woburn Forest for the first time this year. Some people out there who think that we are just about the summer but, for us, the winter is just as special. Our teams will be working hard to get all the lights up around the village and Santa will soon be on his way. Christmas is typically a day families can really focus on each other, spending quality time together but this doesn’t just have to be limited to once a year. We ask, why wait until the 25th December?”
Here are some Winter Wonderland facts:
It usually takes 290 days to plan and create a Winter Wonderland
A team of 200 people are involved in the creation of Winter Wonderland
3.36 tonnes of paper-based, biodegradable snow are used to decorate the Villages
70,000 fairy lights are used on to decorate each Village
