Himley’s Magical Christmas Portal returns

Posted on:

Christmas is coming – and youngsters can speak to Father Christmas direct from the North Pole as the Magical Portal returns to Himley.

Tickets start from just £5 for the popular event, which this year will run from Wednesday December 14 to Sunday December 18.

With a little sprinkling of festive magic, the magic portal will see Father Christmas appear on a giant screen in the beautiful courtyard of the historic stately home.

With the help of his companion Edward, children will be able to interact and speak with Father Christmas as he takes a short break from his busy schedule in the North Pole.

They can find out how the toys are made in the North Pole and tell Father Christmas what they’d really like on the big day.

Every youngster will receive a bespoke gift, while there will also be a Christmas market, food and refreshment stalls, festive street entertainment and a traditional funfair.

Councillor Shaun Keasey, cabinet member for commercialisation, said:

The feedback we got from the inaugural event last year was fantastic, so we’re delighted to be bringing back Himley’s Magical Christmas Portal again this year.
This time of year is all about making memories with loved ones and it really is a great evening out for the whole family, offering a spectacular and enchanting Christmas experience.
Tickets are going quickly so we would urge people to get booked up now to avoid disappointment.
