Great Dunmow Christmas Lights

 Sip a delectable glass of Prosecco as your little ones are kept entertained in Santa’s grotto or by the gentle motion of a tea cup ride. If this sounds like the Christmas event of your dreams, then prepare for fantasy to become reality at the Great Dunmow Christmas Lights.

A historic market town in the Uttlesford district of Essex, Great Dunmow puts on a serious show each Christmas. As well as a dazzling display of festive lights, there’s a whole host of entertainment to be enjoyed by kids and adults alike.

At the heart of the action is a large ice skating rink suitable for all standards, from beginners to advanced skaters. Whether you’re a family with kids, a group of friends, or a loved up couple seeking a romantic activity, the ice rink offers the perfect Christmas pursuit. The atmosphere is fun and friendly so there’s no need to worry about embarrassing falls – it’s all part of the adventure! But remember, tickets for the rink need to be booked in advance, so call ahead to avoid disappointment.

Meanwhile food and drink stalls will be serving up traditional treats including everyone’s favourite cosy Christmas tipple – mulled wine. And then there’s the pièce de résistance – a dedicated Prosecco bar where you can soak up the atmosphere with a fizzy indulgence in your hands. What better way to welcome in the festive season?

Be sure to stick around until 6pm, because that’s when the Big Man himself emerges from his grotto for the ultimate honour: turning on the Great Dunmow Christmas Lights. Children will be entranced by the kaleidoscopic effect as the town centre is transformed into a scene of festive brilliance. As for the adults, if you’ve had one Prosecco too many, you might find yourself cast under its spell too!

The event starts at 3pm. Entry is free for all-comers.
