Wicksteed Park's Magical Wicksteed has proved to be so popular that it is fully booked - but do not despair as the Kettering park has launched a new Twilight event.

The park was determined to do something to give families and children something to look forward to at the end of a year blighted by Covid-19.

Many of the annual events held at the park have had to be cancelled this year, including this year’s bonfire night celebration.

Have you booked for Magical Wicksteed?

Magical Wicksteed is running every weekend in December as well as December 21, 22, 23 and 24, but the festive event has proved so popular that it has sold out.

A spokesman for the park said: "Magical Wicksteed is now fully booked but we have now launched Magical Twilight, which begins on December 18 and offers a chance to feed the reindeer, meet Santa, a gift for the children and unlimited rides on the carousel and Sway Rider for just £10.

"Grown-ups will receive a yummy treat too.

"This event starts at 3pm so just ring the park for further details."

Magical Wicksteed is fully booked but a Magical Twilight event has now been launched

Speaking earlier this year when Magical Wicksteed was first announced, Wicksteed Park's head of sales and marketing Rachel James said: “We are determined to do everything we can to end the year on a high and give everyone something festive to look forward too.

“We are asking people to bear with us as obviously things are a little different this year due to Covid-19.

"Things may change due to Covid-19 restrictions but we will make adjustments where necessary and hopefully people will understand and work with us.

“But we have made a commitment that if people are not happy with any changes that are required due to Covid-19 restrictions then their booking will be fully refundable.”
