Christmas winter wonderland at Meadowhall
Look out for a magical snow flurry, with Meadowhall planning to make it snow for 10 minutes every day at 4.30pm outside in the Oasis Courtyard. Or meet fun festive friends – including Mrs Claus, The Grinch, a festive Unicorn or Giant Gingerbread Men – who will be spreading Christmas cheer, causing mischief and giving a warm welcome to visitors throughout weekends in December and the week before Christmas.
With Christmas baubles, Angel wings, Santa’s sleigh and a giant snow globe, there will also be plenty of opportunities to pose for that perfect festive selfie.

One Upon A Wentworth Christmas at Wentworth Woodhouse
Rotherham stately home Wentworth Woodhouse is staging a fantastical festive adventure which takes families on a mission through its grand state rooms to rescue Father Christmas.
The old chap has been stolen away by the Snow Queen in her bid to cancel Christmas, and young heroes and heroines are needed to rescue him.
The Once Upon a Wentworth Christmas experience was due to run in 2019, when the Covid-19 pandemic really did cancel many of the things families enjoy at Christmas.
This magical walk-through theatrical experience through a historic Grade 1* listed building takes place from December 18 - 24, with various times available through the website.
One paying adult can attend with up to three under 16s. All tickets are £16.50 plus £1.32 booking fee (under twos free).
