There’s ‘snow’ place like Drayton Manor Park’s Magical Christmas!

Wednesday, 13th November 2019

Local family-favourite attraction Drayton Manor Park is preparing to bring a little piece of Lapland to Staffordshire this Christmas, with the return of its annual Magical Christmas event.

Thomas Land will be transforming into a festive wonderland on selected dates from Saturday 16 November to Tuesday 31 December, in which visitors will experience a host of festive activities, including new festive daily live shows, and 4D screenings of the Christmas classic, Ice Age: A Mammoth Christmas.

Thomas Land’s very own Rusty and Dusty will be kicking off the day with their fun-filled Merry Christmas Welcome Show, followed by a brand-new live show from the Fat Controller, plenty of giggles at the Magical Christmas Presents Show, as well as festive sing-a-longs.

Those who have been extra good this year can bring their Christmas list, as a very special guest – Father Christmas himself – has taken up residence in the spectacular Castle of Dreams. And as he doesn’t travel alone, guests will also be able to meet his reindeer when visiting the park’s 15-acre zoo.

To top it off, every day finishes with an all-new Magical Christmas parade show, followed by a breath-taking firework display.

The attraction’s beloved Thomas Land will also be getting into the Christmas spirit with guaranteed snowfall every single day! Alongside the park’s special Christmas activities, visitors can enjoy over 25 Thomas and Friends™ themed rides and attractions suitable for all ages.

William Bryan, Managing Director at Drayton Manor Park, said: “Christmas really is the most wonderful time of the year here at the park, with our Magical Christmas event providing festive fun for the whole family.

“Christmas-lovers will be in their element, with a range of exciting activities providing something for both the young, and the young at heart!”

Drayton’s Magical Christmas will run on selected dates from Saturday 16 November to Tuesday 31 December*, with the park opening at 9.45am and rides starting at 10.30am. For further information, and to book tickets, please visit
