20+ Christmas Events for Kids across North East England

 

A lot of people are finding this post via Google search and have been asking for ideas for Christmas Events which are available to book now for Christmas 2020. 

20+ Christmas Events for Kids across North East England

Due to the ongoing pandemic, many places have cancelled their events this year including many pantos and Kielder Winter Wonderland. I do have faith that many Christmas events will still go ahead though and I just think many places will be waiting until nearer the time to release any details. 

Honestly, I really think we just need to sit and wait for the next few months and see what happens. Booking now is at your own risk. 

So far for 2020 we have...... 

  • Believe Christmas has said they will release details soon. Follow their FB page for updates
  • Brand new for 2020 - The Father Christmas Experience at Bamburgh Castle - book here
  • Lightwater Valley Alice in Wonderland Lantern Trail - book here
  • Walworth Castle is now taking bookings for breakfast with Santa - book here
  • Walworth Castle is now taking bookings for supper with Santa - book here

  • Spanish City Christmas Light Switch On - book here

  • Spanish City Festive Afternoon Tea - book here
  • Spanish City Lunch with Santa - book here

  • The Inn Collection manage various pubs across the North East and are now taking bookings for breakfast/tea/lunch/afternoon tea with Santa - info here
  • Santas Grotto at Dobbies Garden Centres - book here
  • Breakfast with Santa at Dobbies Garden Centre - book here

  • Santa’s Arrival at Dobbies Garden Centre - book here
  • Little Seedlings Christmas Stories at Dobbies Garden Centre - book here
  • Santa Paws at Dobbies Garden Centre - book here
  • Raby Castle Enchanted Forest Trail - book here 

  • Northern Stage is planning something special & will announce information soon - details here

I have no inside info but I reckon, if somewhere is open now (eg Whitehouse Farm / Raby Castle / Alnwick Garden etc....) and able to operate with social distancing in place, there is a high chance they will plan something for Christmas 2020. It just might be a little different and on a smaller scale to what we are used to. Fingers crossed anyway. 

This post will be updated with new events as and when they are announced.
