This year sees many new additions to the annual sell-out event just outside of Leeds, including for the first time ever, Mrs Claus with the first-lady of the festive season set to be hosting gingerbread decorating workshops, fit for all the family.

Other new additions will include an enchanting new festive woodland walk (which replaces the previous 12 days of Christmas walk), where winding paths will be filled with twinkling lights and decked out in larger than life Christmas traditions to be explored, including a giant Christmas cracker and a snow globe tunnel.

Discussing the newest additions to the popular family attraction, Coun Pryor stated: "This year’s Christmas Experience at Lotherton has been made bigger, better and more magical than ever, with fun for children and big kids alike.

"As well as the festive fun which fills the air in the run up to the big day, welcoming our guest of honour, Mrs Claus, will add an extra sprinkle of festive fairydust to ensure visitors leave filled with Christmas cheer and magical memories.”

Celebrations can continue with a visit to the Elf Village or to the festive woodland walk. Picture: Lotherton: The Christmas Experience
