An exciting, new, immersive theatre experience is coming to Belfast this Winter. Santa’s Night Safari takes the whole family on a magical exploration through Sir Thomas and Lady Dixon Park from Thursday 16th – Sunday 19thDecember.
Santa and Mrs Claus invite you to wrap up warm, grab your torch and join them on an after hours adventure through the park. With safari hats and a map, families will explore the park becoming part of this one of a kind Christmas show. Track down the Brussels Sprouts, go Quackers with the Christmas ducks, fly away with the Christmas Tree Fairy and dance yourself dizzy with Ginger and Bred the Gingerbread People. And who knows? You might even encounter Mrs Mary Claus the first lady of Christmas herself or even spot Santa on his adventures!
With enchanting light and art displays, festive food and lots of fun surprises it is sure to be a theatre show like no other and get the whole family into the Christmas spirit.
Event Organiser, Sarah-Jane Montgomery commented, “Santa’s Night Safari is an interactive theatre experience that will showcase the magic of Christmas. The park will be illuminated with thousands of Christmas lights while families are invited to explore with a treasure hunt style map, ticking off the characters they encounter along the way. The characters are wacky and wonderful, each with their own story to tell.”
“MayWe is a small business that has built a reputation for providing high quality arts and cultural events, our focus has always been rooted in community. We are proud to continue this with Santa’s Night Safari. Belfast’s vibrant arts sector was hugely impacted in past 18 months, so we are especially delighted that this event will provide paid employment for so many local arts and event professionals, many of whom have suffered throughout the pandemic while still offering an exciting new experience so that families and friends can create special memories once again.”
Everyone is welcome, with an early relaxed session on Friday 17 December for those with sensory or additional needs.
