We have decided to visit Enchanted Parks at Saltwell Park this year after seeing all of the fabulous photographs across social media in the last few years and reading this post featuring Life in Geordieland's visit last year.
I have been eagerly awaiting an announcement that tickets are on sale so I am VERY excited to be able to tell you that tickets will go on sale at 9am on Tuesday 4th October. Set your alarms or make a note on your calendar if you'd like to get your hands on tickets as I suspect the event will sell out.
The annual event will see Saltwell Park transformed into a magical, mythical wonderland from Tuesday 6 December - Sunday 11 December. Overwhelming public demand for the event has led to the organisers adding an additional date this year.
The theme for this year's event has been inspired by the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare's death and will involve a hidden manuscript in Saltwell Towers unleashing a strange magic over the park as A Winter's Tale comes to life.
