Plan Ahead for Christmas at Bolesworth

The Bolesworth Christmas countdown is on. There are seven days until the festive doors open at the Cheshire estate, leaving just enough time to check out the action and plan ahead.

First up, save £££s by pre-booking. It provides a saving of 20 per cent over on the gate fees and, if a trip to Santa’s Grotto is a must-do, an advanced reservation will guarantee a slot.

Friday the 2nd of December depicts the opening of Christmas at Bolesworth and, to celebrate the occasion, the evening will close with a bang when a display of fireworks light up the Cheshire sky.

The season of goodwill will then continue throughout December as the Bolesworth Christmas lights keep shining. Explore the Cheshire venue’s all-new, dog-friendly festive lights trail, get a head start on Christmas shopping, visit Rudoph’s Rest, and simply get into the festive spirit with delicious food and drink. Perhaps even take in a glass of fizz on Champagne Island?

Christmas just isn’t Christmas without a theme or two and, on this front, Bolesworth is set to deliver. Kicking off with a Christmas Jumper Day in support of Save the Children on Thursday the 8th of December, human visitors and their pooches are invited to wear their finest woolly and be in with the chance of winning a prize.

Sunday the 11th of December will see a bevy of runners, or walkers, don a set of red and white gear and participate in the augural Bolesworth 2km Santa Dash in aid of the company’s appointed charity Hope House and Ty Gobaith Children’s Hospices. Entries are now open.

Next up will be a song for Christmas when the 60-strong mixed voice Kelsborrow Choir power up to entertain visitors with seasonal music on Saturday the 17th of December.

Finally, Christmas at Bolesworth ends on a flourish with a fun Festive Fancy Dress day on Christmas Eve where there’ll be prizes up for grabs.

Christmas at Bolesworth is set to entertain and delight this December with a host of seasonal celebrations. Just eight miles south of Chester on the A41.

Tickets are priced from £18.00 with discounted family tickets also available. Find out more at www.bolesworth.com/christmas

Santa Dashes Through Bolesworth for Charity

Running alongside its all-new 2022 Christmas Lights Trail, the Bolesworth Estate in Cheshire will host its inaugural Bolesworth Santa Dash, in aid of Hope House and Ty Gobaith Children’s Hospices, this December.

Hope House Children’s Hospices is a registered charity dedicated to the provision of hospice and community care for life limited children and their families from Shropshire, Cheshire, North and Mid Wales. It has been Bolesworth’s appointed charity for just over a year now, with almost £40,000 raised so far.

The Bolesworth Santa Dash will be held on Sunday December 11, starting at 3pm (with arrival from 2.30pm). Participants will have the opportunity to run, or walk, a 2km circuit which will wind around the impressive Bolesworth Castle, with incredible views of Cheshire, north Wales, Wirral, and Merseyside along the way.

What’s more, it’s dog-friendly too so pooches are welcome to join the fun.

Contestants are encouraged to dress up and will receive a Santa Dash medal and goody bag at the finish line. They will also be offered a 25 per cent discount per booking of four tickets to the Bolesworth Christmas Lights Trail, which will be matched by a further 25 per cent donation by Bolesworth to the chosen charity.

All entry fees – £5 per child and £10 for adults – will be donated to the Hope House Children’s Hospice charity. Admission is free for spectators.

Christmas markets, sited alongside a large fairground, will feature Xmas gift shopping and mouth-watering food stands serving up a selection of indulgent goodies, from savoury hog roast to delicious, sweet treats. Shoppers can enjoy a glass of spiced mulled wine enjoy a celebratory cocktail or a hot chocolate and soak up the grin-inducing atmosphere of the event.

Heated domes with comfortable and relaxed lounging areas on Bolesworth’s VIP Champagne Island provide a secret hideaway on a hidden island where guests can sit and watch the world go by. The (additional) price includes the use of a heated dome for up to eight people, and a bottle of champagne.

Elsewhere, a winter-warming indoor Alpine Lodge, with welcoming bar and plenty of seating will be packed with things to do together with food, and drink areas.

Those making the trip to the Bolesworth Christmas extravaganza on the night of Friday the 2nd of December, will be treated to an added-bonus in the form of fireworks to celebrate the opening of the month-long event.
