The UK’s largest indoor Christmas theme park is coming back to Manchester

Silcock’s Winter Wonderland Manchester returns after a four-year gap

Organisers of the UK’s largest indoor Christmas theme park are delighted to announce that Silcock’s Winter Wonderland Manchester returns after a four-year gap.

The much-loved festive extravaganza returns indoors at EventCity next to The Trafford Centre from Saturday 4th December 2021 to Sunday 2nd January 2022.

The Christmas event became a top attraction in Manchester for five years from 2013-2017, becoming one of the city’s most colourful annual events. The festive family attraction returns bigger and better than before, with tickets now on sale.

The indoor 22,000 sq m exhibition space will be tranformed into an unbelievable and magical winter wonderland, featuring over 50 family rides and attractions under one roof, including Dodgems, Roller Coasters, Waltzers and too many children’s rides to mention.

There is also a dazzling array of theatrical shows on the main stage, including TV stars Daisy and Ollie, Ice Princess Show, Christmas Meltdown, plus the spectacular Christmas Circus returns, all with daily performances. Not to mention being greeted by Elves and Fairies and the surprises that are yet to be announced.

Of course, Christmas would not be complete without visiting Father Christmas – complete with real reindeers- who will be taking time out of his busy schedule for meet and greets every day, up to and including Christmas Eve. You also have the option to purchase a toy and a photo from Father Christmas Toy Workshop.

If this wasn’t enough, there are also games stalls and festive foods from German sausages to waffles and crepes and an authentic German Bar for alcoholic drinks and refreshments.

Four hours of non-stop fun and entertainment are all included in one ticket price (excluding games and food stalls) along with 3000 free car park spaces.

Organisers Kingpin Events have also confirmed the return of the Celebrity VIP Night and their annual Charity Night, which this year has been pre-arranged with targeted NHS and mental health charities.
