The huge outdoor ice rink will return, as well as the fairground, Twisted Wheels’ roller disco, Plonk Golf’s Christmassy crazy golf course, some spectacular street food from Street Feast and booze from Bar Humbug. However, there’s even more to get excited about this year!

Backyard Cinema will be back, but this time they’ll be bringing The Christmas Labyrinth with them: a magical maze that leads to an enchanted forest, complete with a two-screen cinema, a cabaret-themed bar and a hidden tequila bar. Once you’re inside, you can enjoy all of your favourite Christmas films, including Elf, Home Alone and Love Actually.
