What’s on – January

Christmas is over for another year, we are all clearing away the remnants of the New Year celebrations and those January blues are going to start calling any day soon!

To cheer up those darkest days this January why not keep the festivities alive by booking a break to stay in our lodges?

There are some fantastic things to do near our parks to keep your mind and festive spirit going until the end of the month.

Whilst staying at Hilton Woods this January why not head on down to the Eden Project? The attraction is most certainly keeping the festive spirit alive, with the glittering ice rink – the only indoor ice rink in Cornwall – remaining open until the 18th February, giving the whole family a fun filled day out.

If Ice Skating is not up your street then perhaps the Family Fun weekend on 13-14th January will be more your thing. The whole family will be able to lose themselves in a world of Cornish flora, fauna and folklore with Squashbox Theatre’s Skillywidden – a performance celebrating the wildlife and faerie myths of Cornwall. Expect crazy characters, puppets, songs, storytelling and traditional Cornish music. If you are feeling inspired you can also try your hand at writing your own fable in the workshop area. With no booking required and the cost of the performances included in your Eden admission – the weekend is bound to offer fun for all the family.

If you are planning a trip to Norfolk Park why not spend a day at the races with the family at Fakenham Race Course on 22nd January? Kids under 17 go free with a paying adult. Spending an exciting day seeing the power and speed of the horses up close and placing bets will offer a fun filled day out for the whole family to enjoy.

Blakeney Point, just 25 miles from Norfolk Park, offers sights to be seen at this time of year with the largest seal colony in England. Over 2,000 pups were born in 2014 alone. Visiting the area during the breeding season (October to January) allows visitors to see the seals up close in a natural habitat. Whilst in the area you can sign up for guided walks and boat tours, educating you about the animal’s diet, behaviour and threats. Keep your eye out whilst visiting the Nature Reserve as you may also spot a wide range of birds, red deer and perhaps even whales out to sea.

If you did not get the chance to see a panto this Christmas, why not book tickets to Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs when staying at Elm Farm Country Park? The Mercury Theatre, Colchester is running the panto until 14th January. With tickets ranging from £11.50-£28, the panto promises to be a treat for all the family – offering memories to last all year!

January does not have to be blue! Find out what’s on in your area and stay active!
