It won’t surprise you to know that I’m a big big fan of a bright shiny lights, magic and sparkly Christmas events and I’ve got some of the most fabulous festive events the South of England has to offer along with the chance for you to win tickets to one of our favourites, the Malvern Winter Glow.
Starting in the capital with a huge festive event, London’s Hyde Park is transformed into a fantastic Winter Wonderland with a whole host of fairground rides for all ages and levels of thrill seeking, a circus tent showing two different festive performances, fairground rides, food and drink stalls, Christmas market with traditional wooden chalets, ice rink, ice slide and so much more! (Please note that all attraction are bookable separately and so costs will vary depending on numbers and activities chosen.)
Another one we absolutely love is the magnificent Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire. Not only do they have an incredible light trail all around the grounds with music and a Christmas market, funfair rides and delicious food stalls, you can also get tickets for the exquisitely decorated palace. With a different theme each year, 2023 brings you Sleeping Beauty courtesy of the incredibly talented Clare Elliot and her team of creative designers! We find it truly magical every year and one of our festive highlights.

Last but not least, we have the Malvern Winter Glow at the Malvern 3 Counties Showground. This is one of our favourites with an ice rink, fairground rides, a big ferris wheel, market stalls with local sellers, food stalls and a fabulous trail. Best of all, the Winter Trail have given me some tickets to give away to you! Win either a ticket for a family of four for ice skating or for the light trail. Enter here!
