Castlemas, the immersive Christmas event taking place at Tonbridge Castle between December 8-20, has unveiled the first release of its 2022 show programme.
The Castlemas website is decked out with all the information and inspiration you should need to make this year’s Christmas extra special.
There will be lots to discover at Castlemas. Visitors can browse the delightful wooden chalets of Mistletoe Town, warm up with a hot chocolate or mulled wine in the toasty Jingle Bell Bar and enjoy a picture-perfect moment with Castlemas Snowfall, which falls daily at 2.30pm and 6.30pm.
The Igloo Theatre is the beating heart of the attraction and a must-see for all the family.
With a diverse programme that hosts more than 50 magical live performances across 13 days, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
Performances not to miss include Massaoke Christmas, a night of lights, sights and seasonal sound where you can sing along to all your favourite festive hits with a live band.
Joining the line up is Queenz, a fiercely fabulous show with drag queens performing everything from Britney to Whitney. Another brilliant addition is Ultimate Bublé at Christmas - a stunning tribute to crooner Michael Bublé.
Visitors can only enter the Igloo Theatre with a ticket to one of the performances, many of which can be booked online now with more releases coming soon.
What’s more, Santa will be taking residence at Tonbridge Castle this December. With a pre-booked Santa’s Castle Experience ticket, Castlemas guests get behind-the-scenes access to Santa’s sorting office, where they will be part of an immersive theatrical experience with Mrs Claus and the elves.
Tickets for this are launching on Thursday, August 25.
After seeing Father Christmas, pop into Santa’s Workshop, a drop-in creative space with a range of arts and crafts activities.
The daytime arts and crafts activity area will be open from 9.30am to 7.30pm on weekends and 10.30am to 7.30pm on weekdays.
Castlemas opens at 10am Monday to Friday and from 9am on Saturdays, Sundays plus December 19-20.
Although entry to Castlemas is free, booking a ticket to one of the experiences, including the Igloo Theatre or Santa’s Castle, guarantees you access to the site for that day.
