The Enchanted Winter Garden returns to Antrim Castle Gardens for an extended period from Thursday, December 8, to Sunday, December 18, from 4pm until 8pm each day.

Visitors to the garden, to which admission is free, can enjoy stunning light installations, the Forest of Fire, Christmas Train, Reindeer Trail and of course Santa’s Grotto as well as dazzling new attraction the Wonderland Wood, where a stroll through the twinkling trees will reveal magical delights and sights.

The Cancer Fund for Children will be running Santa’s Grotto. In high demand during the Christmas season, Santa will have the

help of charity volunteers who will make sure any visit to the Grotto is extra special. Donations from the Grotto will go to the charity.

Matthew Allen, Corporate fundraiser for Cancer Fund for Children said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council on their Santa’s Grotto at the Enchanted Winter Garden.”
