Gisburne Park Christmas Pop Up at Gisburne Park, 4 — 20 December 2020 Tickets from £3 — Book now

Immerse yourself in Christmas cheer! Gisburne Park Pop Up brings together Christmas markets, a drive-in panto, and the chance to meet Santa Claus all in one place.

Following the success of their summer programme of socially distanced festivals (the first in the UK, no less), Gisburne Park Pop Up is back with a cracking Christmas extravaganza.

Nestled in the Ribble valley, the picturesque private estate comes alive this December with three events which all pack a Christmas punch.

The entertainment is centred around a traditional Christmas market – festooned with lights and traditional stalls. Where you can expect an eclectic mix of vintage wares, handmade crafts, art and quirkiness from some of the finest makers, creators, and collectors in the land – all with a festive twist of course. And there will be mulled wine, hog roasts, and hot chocolate galore!

We think this trio of festive treats is quite possibly the most exciting of the year.

On top of all that, your little ones can meet Santa and watch a never-before-seen drive-in performance of Aladdin adapted in true panto-style.

This modern take on the well-loved Disney classic will have you singing and dancing in your car seats as you enjoy the escapades of Aladdin, Jasmine and all their friends to a soundtrack of up-to-date pop songs.

If that wasn’t enough, the performance will be followed by a Christmas parade!

Your family can also experience Gisburne Park’s very own North Pole where you’ll be greeted by friendly little helpers and real-life reindeer.

Help your tots write their Christmas wish lists, pop them in the post box, and sip warm mugs of hot chocolate while you wait to meet Father Christmas in the forest tipi. If the kids have been good this year (of course they have!) then they’ll leave with a special gift.

We think this trio of festive treats is quite possibly the most exciting of the year.

Go on, join the jolly Christmas jamboree!
