A magical experience

The hugely popular Sewerby Winter Woodland is returning!

An all new spectacular display of lights, sounds and special effects will bring the grounds to life for a great evening out this festive season.

There will be six sessions each evening. Arrival times will be 4.30pm-5pm; 5pm-5.30pm; 5.30pm-6pm; 6pm-6.30pm; 6.30pm-7pm; and 7pm-7.30pm, and you can walk around the free-flowing experience before arriving at the courtyard where the food and drink is located.

The only exception to this schedule will be on Monday 12 December, when there will be relaxed performances at 4.30pm and 5pm, with no 5.30pm slot that evening, and the usual sessions at 6pm, 6.30pm and 7pm.

Relaxed performances will feature reduced volume, no haze or smoke machines, and no fire in the finale.

Watch out - mischievous elves about!

The Winter Woodland Elves are causing mischief - tinkering with lights and sound to create a stunning party atmosphere in the woods, with the emphasis firmly on fun. It will be an opportunity to come and enjoy the woods on a free-flowing walk, lit up with stunning displays of colour, and to see what the woodland elves get up to outside of the toymakers' workshop - playing, crafting, and dancing with the reindeer.

A full experience

The house itself will be filled with Christmas decorations, lights and trees, and the cheeky elves will be hiding in the rooms. There will also be a new exhibition in the house, 'Elves - not just for Christmas'.

An all -new food and drink area will be created, with a large marquee in the courtyard area. Food will be supplied from Stables Pizza Company and the Clock Tower Cafe. The Marquee will house a licenced bar, from Louisianna bars.
