Sewerby Winter Woodland
The hugely popular Sewerby Winter Woodland will return to Sewerby Hall and Gardens in Bridlington this Christmas, for 2023. 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.
This year’s Sewerby Winter Woodland will include a new route and a new theme – a chance to embark on a Magical Christmas Rescue, along with a host of cheerful festive characters! The mischievous elves accidentally dropped a sack of presents while flying over Sewerby Hall and Gardens and we urgently need your assistance to locate and recover them. But fear not! The Fairy atop the Christmas tree has bestowed her wondrous magic upon the woods, illuminating them with a captivating display of colours, glitters, and twinkles. Step into the Winter Woodland, where cheerful festive characters await to lend a hand. Together, with a touch of Fairy Magic, let’s save Christmas in a truly unforgettable experience for all the family!
Inside the House, our exhibition to add to the magic of Christmas is The Nutcracker, set on Christmas Eve many years ago, where toys come to life and take the children on an unforgettable adventure. It also explores the Nutcracker’s place in popular culture since the story’s publication in 1816. To complement the exhibition, there will also be the Nutcracker trail and festive activities around the house.
Food and drinks will be available from the Clock Tower Cafe, Stables Pizza Company, and Love Hog Roast. The courtyard marquee will house a licenced bar, from Louisianna Bars. As a new addition for 2023, there will also be a chance for visitors to browse craft stalls from local vendors, which will have wonderful trinkets available for purchase. Refreshments will be available to purchase along the route as well as enjoying toasted marshmallows at an additional charge.
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 – 6.50pm, and 6.50pm – 7.15pm, and you can walk around the free-flowing experience before arriving at the courtyard where the food and drink are located.
