What’s On

animation… light shows… and much more…

Kicking off with the grand opening of Bournemouth’s all-new Christmas Tree Wonderland on 16 November, you can look forward to more than six weeks of events in and around the town.

Full of magic, sparkle and wonder, the Christmas Tree Wonderland trail will come to life with regular light shows, animated characters and live music along the route.

As well as Santa’s Grotto, skating under the stars and an alpine market in the centre of the town, you’ll find switch-ons, parades and markets in our coastal villages. And the celebrations are themed with Westbourne’s Victorian Christmas, Boscombe’s continental flavour and Southbourne’s vintage vibe!

Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without family friendly shows and live entertainment. From panto and performances specially designed for tiny tots in mind to church services and carol singing, you’ll be hard pushed not to join in the fun. Oh yes you will!

And don’t forget – our official transport provider, Yellow Buses can help you get around to experience everything the Christmas Tree Wonderland has to offer.
