Winter Wonderland 2017 at Manchester Event City

We are so so excited! It's the first year that we will be going to Winter Wonderland in EventCity, Manchester, and we have heard a lot of good things about it! Just looking at the pictures from last year on their website makes me want to be there now!

There will be over 70 family rides and attractions indoor, so you won't have to worry about bad chilly weather outside. There are also shows on stage, Christmas Circus, Santa's Grotto with real reindeers, as well as fairies and elves we can take selfies with. Then there are food, drinks and prize stalls too, it couldn't be more festive than that!
