Christmas Re-imagined at Hatton Country World

Christmas Re-imagined at Hatton Country World

This Christmas season, Hatton Country World is pulling out all the stops to bring visitors of all ages an unforgettable experience.

From Christmas Shopping As It Should Be in the Village to magical visits with Father Christmas in the ‘Enchanted Christmas Kingdom’, watching festive films at the new ‘Drive-In Cinema’ and seeing a spectacular ‘Christmas Light Trail’, Hatton will be the one-stop destination for all things festive this year.

The highly successful ‘Enchanted Christmas Kingdom’ will return for a second year every weekend from 25 November when Hatton is transformed into a Winter Wonderland. Last year’s launch received rave reviews, and this year promises to be even better.

This year there are two new experiences: The 3D Glowing Forest, where both adults and children immerse themselves in a magical world of lights and festive figures, and an interactive North Pole postal station for sending letters to Father Christmas.

Visitors can also look forward to visiting Father Christmas in his cosy Grotto, Mr. Holly’s Magic show, gingerbread decorating with Mother Christmas, reindeer food making, Father Christmas’s secret toy shop and the return of the Create-a-Bear experience.

The ‘Christmas Light Trail’ will take place on selected dates from 30 November – 30 December when visitors can meander along a mile of over 40 dazzling light displays including light tunnels, and infinity squares.

After marvelling at the lights, visitors can get cosy in their cars and watch a Christmas film under the glittering stars. The Drive-In Cinema will run on selected dates between 1 – 23 December with showings at 6:30pm & 9:30pm. Audio can be provided by either headphone or FM radio transmitter. Films will include Frozen, Bad Santa, Deck the halls, Jingle all the Way, Santa Clause, Jack frost, Elf, Arthur Christmas, The Polar Express, The Holiday, Nativity, Gremlins, Home Alone, Love Actually, The Grinch and The Nightmare before Christmas.

Hatton Shopping Village, home to a host of unusual, unique, and boutique stores, sees the popular Christmas Shop return with 20% off during the launch weekend on the 11 and 12 November.

Christmas markets will take place each weekend from 4 November until 17 December. There’s a wide range of shops offering clothing, gifts, toys, sweets, and a garden centre to find the perfect presents in this charming and festive shopping destination.

The award-winning Escape Rooms offer two immersive experiences – Mutiny and Outfitters for teenagers and adults. They also sell a selection of games and puzzles which make great stocking fillers as well as gift vouchers for the experience, perfect for the person who has everything.

The Estate’s Gastro Pub ‘The Hatton Arms’ will provide an idyllic setting for Christmas gatherings and parties. The pub launches its Christmas Fayre menu on 20 November, where guests can enjoy a 2-course meal for £27.95 and a 3-course meal for £32.95. There are several bespoke party packages that combine the Christmas Fayre with the various other experiences mentioned previously.
