Only 138 days to Christmas….

ChristmasWhat?! Too early to start talking about Christmas? Never…

OK, so we know you’re all still enjoying your summer holidays – but our venues and attractions are already on countdown.

In fact, some of them are in full Christmas swing already and are busy taking Christmas orders from eager early birds.

If you haven’t started planning your festive activities yet, don’t worry – tickets haven’t sold out yet. But there’s no harm in checking out what’s coming up…

For those planning a big get-together with family, friends or work colleagues it will certainly pay to be a step (or a sleigh-ride) ahead. Enquire about the Christmas party nights at Village Urban Resort Dudley before the end of September and you could win a Christmas hamper worth £300, shopping vouchers to the value of £200 or some lovely jubbly bubbly! That’s got to be worth an email. You can find the full details of the competition here.
