Whiskey and wine tasting will also be available with a wide range of spirits for you to try before you buy. ere will be outlets selling hot spiced mulled wine, cider and apple drinks. Our festive food and drink village will host a wondrous selection of festive feasts. Enjoy delicious crepes, a hog roast, gourmet burgers and a large selection of sweet treats like churros, donuts, fudge, chocolate and much more. And you can’t have a Christmas event without Santa, of course, so the big man himself will be attending both weekends of e Great Christmas Show.

Santa will be joined by Mickey and Minnie Mouse along with a visit from the wonderful Anna, Else and Olaf.
The Great Christmas Show also has 50 schools from around the region, attending to compete in a Christmas Carol Concert extravaganza over the two weekends.
The schools will be part of a carol singing competition. ere is a substantial host of prizes up for grabs, as well as the winning school choir having their very own single made and released into the music charts. All the schools will be performing their chosen Christmas Carol or Christmas song in front of a fantastic panel (to be announced at a later date). The competition is open for all ages from primary school right up to secondary school students.

Anthony Carver-Smith, NCT Marketing Manager said: “As Nottingham’s principal bus operator, we work closely with the city’s schools – educating young people on how to use public transport in a respectable and responsible way through our TravelSafe programme. Children from many of these partner schools located across our network will be performing at e Great Christmas Show, so it’s our privilege to show our support in this way. Wollaton Hall is very special to Nottingham and the perfect venue for such a fantastic event.”

X Factor winner, Sam Bailey, who is a big supporter of the two weekend festival of all things Christmas and musical, will be releasing a promotional video later in the year to support this event. ere will also be a lot of coverage from our other big supporter, The Nottingham Post.

Both weekends will be supporting 2 fantastic charities, Rainbows Hospice and Nottingham Hospitals Charity.
