Starting on Friday 4th December until Thursday 31st December, ChristmasCity is a proper festive film extravaganza; delivering a huge selection of festive classic outdoor cinema screenings safely to guests in their own cars.

This is no ordinary drive-in cinema though, each ticket provides visitors with the chance to journey through the immersive trail filled with surprises, live actors and festive characters.

Packed with Christmas crackers and surprises throughout the journey, cars are guided through the mail room tunnel before they enter the ‘snow valley’ which sees Santa’s workshop complete with cheeky elves ready to cause trouble!

All aboard for the final stop where visitors park up at the North Pole Station to sit back and relax with an ultimate Christmas hit from the comfort of their own car.

This is the point where you choose whether you’ve been naughty or nice. Choose between events suitable for families and the strictly-for-adults alternative this Christmas…


This is the perfect child-friendly event for all the family. Films include Home Alone, The Polar Express, Elf, The Grinch and many more! Post your letter to Santa in our post-box and explore the North Pole from the safety of your car.

Santa’s elves are on hand performing acrobatics and tricks as you watch the film – there will also be a special message from Father Christmas himself! It’s the perfect day out for the whole family this festive season.


Bask in all the pleasures of the North Pole – naughty style! Films include The Holiday, Bad Santa, Die Hard and Love Actually.

There may be appearances from some scantily dressed elves and maybe even Santa himself after a few festive drinks. This immersive cinema experience is the perfect evening out without the kids. If you’re looking for a grown-up escape this Christmas, you don’t want to miss this.
