The Most Magical Time Of The Year

by Matthew Worthington - 30th October 18

Sanat Visits at Ribby Hall Village

It’s not long now until the decorations will be up, the mulled wine being served and the man in the red suit will be taking up residence at Lancashire’s favourite holiday destination.

Winter Wonderland returns to Ribby Hall Village and this year promises to be the most magical yet!

Today I’m excited to share more details on what to expect during this year’s festivities.


BIG Lights Switch On – 16th November 

This year we’ll be hosting a magical celebration as we switch on the lights across The Village – together, with Santa. Festivities will begin at the Magical Tree House at 5:30pm with The BIG Lights Switch taking place at 6:30pm.

There’ll be a whole host of party dances, hot food, mince pies and drinks available and the first chance to see Mr & Mrs Claus. The perfect Winter Wonderland photo opportunity!

Also available on the night of the BIG Switch On and throughout Winter Wonderland will be our all-new Ice Rink. Get your skates on, because whether you’re a complete beginner or looking to improve your skills, our open air ice rink will become a family favourite.

NEW Festive Family Fun

Brand new for 2018; join us for an afternoon of good old traditional festive family fun with games, music, prizes and party dances aplenty. Our Ribby Hall Village Characters – Dizzy & Cyril will join in the fun too!


Reindeer Visits

A hugely popular experience last year returns for 2018. Santa has kindly allowed us to take Pringles the Reindeer on a village walk-round to see some of our guests! Enjoy a private reindeer visit to your cottage on selected dates. This unique meet-and-greet experience is a children’s favourite and a moment to cherish this Winter Wonderland.
