It is essential to Thornton Hall Country Park that as many families as possible (particularly those with additional needs) are able to enjoy and fully experience the magic of the interactive Christmas events on offer.
“Just Be You” sessions are back for 2021 – smaller groups and lengthier time slots, making it easier for anyone needing to take their time to adapt to their surroundings, and for those that may not be at ease with noise and/or larger groups. So relax and enjoy an easier, comfortable, stress-free event.
‘Just Be You’ adventure dates 28th November, 5th and 12th December
