The UK venue Drayton Manor Park will celebrate 10 years of its Magical Christmas event this year, with the festive celebrations set to be bigger and better than ever.

Over the past decade, Drayton Manor Park has given more than half a million visitors 280 days of Magical Christmas memories, including 159,600 Father Christmas meet and greets and endless additional magical moments. And this year even more festive magic will be on offer as the park marks the milestone in suitable style.

Starting on November 18 and running on selected dates throughout the Christmas period, visitors of all ages will be able to enjoy Europe’s only Thomas Land, as it once again becomes a winter wonderland, with guaranteed snow showers up to three times a day.

Sparkling decorations will add to the atmosphere, while live shows and festive music will also help to get the whole family feeling merry.

In celebration of 10 years of Magical Christmas, Drayton Manor Park will be serving up a host of culinary festive delights and youngsters will be able to enter the enchanted Castle of Dreams where they’ll be greeted by playful helpers and the sugar plum fairy, before meeting Father Christmas in his grotto.

The magical makeover will continue throughout the park, with a 30ft. lightshow Christmas tree taking centre stage and playing festive music throughout the day.

Those looking to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the park can visit the 15-acre zoo, home to over 750 animals of 130 different species from all over the world, while each day of Magical Christmas will end with an abundance of colour, courtesy of a fireworks display.
