Winter Wonderland 2017 runs from 9th Dec – 1st Jan 2018. It is all indoors at Eventcity right next to the Trafford Centre. So no matter the weather you’ll be sure to have fun! With loads of free parking available you’re sure to have a fab time. Each session lasts 4 hours and includes all rides. Also the Rainbow show (with Zippy and George!) and the Christmas Circus. As well as meet & greet with the big man himself, father Christmas! Of course the sessions after the 24th December don’t include Santa as he’ll be off having a very well deserved rest!

And if you have been inspired by the amazing acrobatic acts at the circus show , there is also an opportunity to try out your own circus skills in special workshops on site.

Meanwhile there will be a chance for children to create their own amazing models in the interactive building block zone.
