Events in Lancashire this Christmas


Picking a few things to do over the festive period is a great way to spend less and see more people. You can take different groups of friends and family to a few different events and still have enough money left over for Christmas.

Beauty and the Beast in Lancaster


Lancaster-based writer Eddie Robson has adapted the classic Disney fairy tale and made it more modern. It still boasts the traditional Beast and Belle and it’s a magical treat for all the family and children above 5. The play is on show at The Round theatre from November 20th to January 2nd.

Christmas at Thornton Hall Farm



Thornton Hall Farm in Barnoldswick is set to get a visit from Santa. You can book to have breakfast and lunch with him! There will be all the usual farm activities as well as elves, carriage trips and a reindeer park! It’s a truly magical experience for young children to get excited about Christmas. Prices and times vary.

The Snowman at The Blackpool Tower

One of the focal points of the North West, The Blackpool Tower, will be playing host to The Snowman. The production will involve a live orchestra playing the well-known score while the film is played on a big screen. It’s a great experience for all ages, and there’s so much more of Blackpool to enjoy too while you’re there.
