Destination Christmas is set to roll into M&D’s Scotland’s Theme Park this month featuring, for the first time, the world famous Chipperfield’s Circus, one of the UK’s oldest touring circuses.
It features a packed festive programme of affordable attractions and entertainment with something for the whole family to enjoy.
For more than 300 years the Chipperfield family have been touring with their famous circus acts. The Christmas Circus will feature a 45-minute performance, following the evil Jack Frost trying to cancel Christmas leaving Santa to save the day. The show will include FMX motor stunt riders, aerial acrobatics, a dancing polar bear, music, comedy, Christmas sing-alongs and much more.
As part of the performance children will be invited into ring to discover circus skills including juggling, unicycling, rolling the globe, using ribbons and hula hoops.
A firm favourite, Destination Christmas will also feature M&D’s On Ice, where friends and family can gather to skate on a full size real ice-rink under the stars before enjoying festive food and drink in the Bavarian Bar.
However, always top of the bill is Believe in Santa featuring Santa himself in his spectacular grotto. A magical experience, Believe in Santa includes festive story telling where the world of technology causes the children to lose their Christmas spirit until a secret family hidden in the Christmas tree reminds them of what they are missing.
Following the story telling in the indoor theatre visitors can walk around 20 different spectacular festive scenes that have been specially created for this year before meeting Santa in his extravagant Grotto where every child receives a gift. There’s also an opportunity to enjoy a ride on an indoor Italian Carousel and adults can enjoy a tea or coffee and a Christmas treat.
Sparkle the Elf will also be on hand to welcome everyone all aboard Santa’s Magical Land Train and a ticket includes hot chocolate and marshmallows to toast. A number of festive rides will also be open in the Theme Park.
