This event features a host of exciting and unique features, fun for the whole family including a Christmas Market, an immersive ‘The Snowman’ experience, fairground rides, a Trip to the North Pole, Santa’s Grotto, a virtual reality experience, a scientific Christmas adventure, Christmas characters, refreshments, games, competitions and much more still to be announced. Live performances will also be taking place to entertain the crowds with Starlight Dance Academy bringing a whole host of performers along with performances from Avocet Theatre Company and the school’s singing group – Tenacity!

Sylvia Thomas, Principal of Banbury Aspirations Campus said:

“Banbury Academy is thrilled to be teaming up once again with Avocet Theatre Company to bring the people of Banbury innovative and community building events. The students and staff have been working closely with the team at ATC and the result is nothing short of magical. It is truly a unique and innovative event.”

One of these innovative events is the ‘Trip to the North Pole’ area organised by national theatre company, Creative Confusion.

There, guests are invited to enter the Elf workshop where they will learn how the build their own Christmas Lanterns as well as purchase lots of Christmas themed goodies before meeting Father Christmas himself in his Grotto!

 Christmas extravaganza - Winter Wonderland

Ben Coleman, Chairman and Artistic Director of Avocet Theatre Company and Creative Confusion said:

“We are so excited to be joining Banbury Academy once again with an event that encapsulates the community spirit which makes Christmas such a magical time of year. Despite ATC are rehearsing for our January youth production of ‘The Little Mermaid Jr’ and Creative Confusion rehearsing ‘Rumours’, we could not resist the opportunity to recreate the incredible atmosphere of last year’s event. The staff and students of Banbury Academy have been so supportive and we are ecstatic that they share our vision of a community focussed Christmas. Winter Wonderland promises to bring Banbury together, so wrap up warm and come and see what’s on offer!”

Space Studio Banbury are also joining in on the fun with a number of stalls and events dedicated to a ‘Scientific Christmas’ including a virtual reality Christmas themed game!

Charities and non-profit organisations have also been invited to the event in order to promote their worthwhile causes and raise money for their causes with Dogs for Good and Banbury Young Carers amongst the already announced groups. The Fire Brigade will also be in attendance and Christmas trees are available to purchase to ensure you continue the festive feeling even when you go home!

Entry to Winter Wonderland is a free and takes place at the Banbury Academy campus on Friday 8th December 2017 commencing at 5.30pm and finishing at 8.30pm.
