There are still tickets available for some performances of Sewerby Winter Woodland, a new outdoor event at Sewerby Hall and Gardens, which will take visitors on a magical outdoor journey of spectacular sounds and lights this December. Some sessions are now sold out, but limited numbers of tickets are still available for some performances.
Visitors will discover that The Snow Queen has cast a spell on the beautiful woodland, which has come alive with light and sounds. Joining the Sewerby polar explorer on his expedition, visitors will travel through an illuminated tunnel into the winter woods, and embark on their quest into the Snow Queen's domain.
As they journey deeper into the woodland, visitors will have the opportunity to make some winter magic of their own - taking part in activities such as wand making with Moonlight, the enchanted moth; learning spells; and even meeting the Snow Queen herself, before enjoying the grand finale of a superb lighting display set to music!
The house itself will be filled with Christmas decorations and trees, and the subdued lighting in the house will add a magical feel.
Visitors will also be able to sample local craft stalls, including Fox Gins, hot roasted chestnuts, Stables Pizza, a range of gift and fragrance stalls, Guide Dogs for the Blind, cakes, the Dogs Trust, Fangfoss Pottery, and face painting. There will also be a licensed bar, and vintage fairground rides and attractions, including hook a duck and bumper cars. (The rides will vary each night).
Sewerby Winter Woodland will run from Friday, 3 December to Thursday, 23 December. Tickets are available via www.sewerbyhall.co.uk/winter-woodland
Entry will be at two timed sessions each day - the first will be from 4.30pm to 6.30pm and the second from 7pm to 9pm.
Tickets cost £12 for adults; £8 for children; and £35 for a family ticket (two adults and two children). There will be free admission for Under 3s (no ticket required) and for carers. Dogs will not be permitted.
Councillor Mike Medini, portfolio holder for cultural and leisure assets, said: "I am delighted that Winter Woodland is proving so popular this year, and I can't wait to see this amazing event!"
