Christmas 2021 Events With Tickets Available To Book Now

As the song goes, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year!” which is why I believe it’s never too early to start planning for Christmas. If you want to make the most of the fun and excitement that the festive period brings, now is the ideal time to start looking at, and booking, Yuletide days out. Much of the usual celebrations were heavily restricted over Christmas 2020 so I can see a lot of these events selling out fast.

I couldn’t write a blog post about Christmas events in the North East without mentioning the big one – Fenwick. No official dates have been released so far but I’ve heard whispers that the revealing of Fenwick’s famous Christmas window will be on Tuesday 9th November 2021. To be in the loop about when tickets for Santa’s Grotto and the Rooftop Experience will be available, make sure you sign up to Fenwick’s newsletter https://www.fenwick.co.uk/sign-up/
