More than 4,000 people – young and old – enjoyed a feast of festive fun at the fourth Winter Wonderland event, with craft activities, stalls selling gifts and decorations, delicious food and warming drinks, competitions, ice-skating, virtual reality and, of course, Father Christmas was on hand in his grotto to welcome children.
Principal of Burnley College Sixth Form Centre Hugh Bramwell said:
“This was the fourth year that we have staged Winter Wonderland and it has featured more attractions, activities and fun for all the family than ever before. Every year we introduce new features to entertain our many visitors – this year our Virtual Reality zone and drone-flying proved to be exceedingly popular, while hundreds of visitors enjoyed pizzas from our wood-fired pizza oven.
“Winter Wonderland is now an established date in the Burnley festive calendar and is the moment many families start their festive countdown.
“We’d like to say a big thankyou to everyone who came along to the college to help us celebrate the start of the festive season at Winter Wonderland. We wish everyone a peaceful festive season and a happy 2018!”
