As you will likely know by now, we LOVE everything Christmas here at Seeing Rainbows HQ and part of the preparations now for us is a visit to Winter Wonderland Manchester! The UK’s largest indoor Christmas theme park returns for a fifth magical year in Manchester and opens to the public on Saturday 9th December 2017, running until Monday 1st January 2018.
It’s the season to be jolly and now there’s even more reason as you could WIN tickets for you and three guests to the VIP Launch of Winter Wonderland on Mon 11th December from 6.30pm at EventCity (next to the Trafford Centre).
During Winter Wonderland, EventCity will be transformed into an unbelievable wonderland extravaganza, featuring over 70 family rides and attractions all under one roof. As well as the rides and the bright lights, there will be a dazzling array of colourful shows which this year includes Zippy and George from TV’s Rainbow who will no doubt bring lots of magic, mayhem and comedy capers! The spectacular Christmas Circus also makes a welcome return delivering breath-taking circus acts that will leave everyone marvelled and amazed.
Of course, Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a visit from Santa Claus complete with real reindeers, who will take time out of his busy schedule to meet and greet all the children. Fairies and Elves will also fly around to play and chat and have ‘s-elfies’ with the children.. (Got to love an ELFIE!)
There will also be a whole host of games stalls and a vast array of food and drinks stalls to purchase refreshments including hot snacks and sweet treats. You can also win some super cute toys just like we did last year..

As you will know by now, I love the theatre and I also love a giveaway for tickets! An afternoon out at the theatre is one of life’s delights as far as I am concerned and so I am really pleased that panto season is almost amongst us again. Also, Southport’s choice of panto this year is the wonderful Wizard of Oz. One of my favourites, I have many fond memories of my childhood watching the film with my late Grandad, so seeing the show always reminds me of him. The Wizard of Oz is a firm family favourite which tells the story of young Dorothy Gale and her dog Toto as they embark on a wondrous adventure over the rainbow in the magical land of Oz! What would there be not to love?
Coming to Southport this October, then is an all-star cast which includes Eastenders’ Cheryl Fergison as the Eva’ The Wicked Witch of the West; BBC Pitch Battle’s Maddie Hope Coelho as Dorothy; X Factor star David Heath as the Scarecrow; the charismatic Philip McGuiness playing the Tin Man; and the hilarious Richard Hazlewood as Cowardly Lion. Regal Entertainments’ panto version of this classic family show includes a hilariously funny script, dazzling costumes and sets, plus a wealth of brilliant songs and show-stopping choreography.
Be sure to join Dorothy, Toto and all their new friends Scarecrow, Tin Man and Lion as they journey down the Yellow Brick Road to The Emerald City in search of the Wizard of Oz who can make all their dreams come true!
The Wizard of Oz runs at Southport Theatre from Tue 24 – Thu 26 October 2017 so why not treat the family this Half Term?
