Christmas isn’t Cancelled

IT’s CHRISTMAS! As Slade once said back in the seventies (and repeated every year since!) and we have a few festive bundles of joy to bring in the cheer following a difficult year for all of us. It’s what you have said you wanted and we are more than happy to oblige.

Today we are launching both our brand new Events website and our Christmas Entertainment Programme.

We pride ourselves in value for money and enjoyment with all our events and this year, in challenging conditions, we aim to protect the safety of our customers and staff whilst maintaining the core values and high standards we have built up over the years. Quite simply Christmas at Whilton Locks Winter Wonderland isn’t cancelled. There will be differences, there will be social distancing and systems put into place to adhere to and, to ensure peace of mind when booking any event, we offer our Event Confidence Guarantee.
This includes:
• Ability to change any ticket type, times and dates.
• No CHARGE cancellation fees (We also do not charge any booking fees either)
• Guaranteed full refund, with NO FEES, if your event is cancelled.

We have had to make a few changes. For instance we’ve lowered the number of skaters allowed on our outdoor, but undercover from the elements, ice rink. We’ve introduced an online pre-booking system to see Santa in his Grotto this year, again with lower numbers and every event will adhere to the current Government guidelines. Elsa returns, there is fabulous food in our Restaurant, special events for toddlers, SEN and even your four-legged-friends.

All our events this year will be pre-bookable – this manages visitor numbers and all events can be pre-booked on our super snazzy new Events website. What’s the address? We hear you ask – it is

Tickets will be released in stages, for different events, from today. All events have lower capacities and early booking is more essential than ever to avoid disappointment. You can book online – or as we are the best Garden Centre for Smiles – we are human too so, you can phone us or even call in to book event places.

It’s Christmas, it’s Whilton Locks Winter Wonderland and it’s bookable now.
