Starry Nights at Dean Castle

About Starry Nights at Dean Castle

Designed and produced by the team at GC Live and delivered by technical partners, 21CC Group, guests are invited to enjoy an unforgettable experience that promises family festivities for everyone.

From Santa’s Grotto, to the fully immersive, festively illuminated light and sound installations across the Country Park, the event will warm your senses and glow up your Christmas spirit like never before.

The Starry Nights Experience will take visitors on a journey passed festive soundscapes and dazzling illuminations as they travel through Fa-La-La-La-Lasers filling the skies with Christmas colours and of course the North Pole, which is bound to chill and thrill.

After guests navigate the nation’s largest star-shaped Starry Night tunnel installation, they can enjoy some entertainment from Twinkle the Elf, as they make their way to visit the Grinch at Who-ville, with Oh Deer, Singing Trees and Fenwick Fairies in-between.

The trail concludes with a spectacular Nutcracker-inspired finale titled ‘The Christmas Cracker’, where dancing water, sound, light and projection will all be at play to make this experience ‘Oh, so dazzling’.

The trail has been created on a loop so, if you don’t catch Santa at the beginning, fear not! He’ll be waiting at the end for you and your family and friends.

Geoff Crow, Director of 21CC Group said: “We are just so excited to bring Christmas Wonderland and our magical Starry Night Experience to Dean Castle this year. The experience really showcases the Castle in all its beauty with plenty of surprises to look forward to, including an array of delicious food and drink, and Christmas entertainment to add to the festive atmosphere. We are looking forward to seeing our Christmas Wonderland Starry Night experience at Dean Castle get the nation into the Christmas spirit from the word ‘sparkle’!”

Tickets start from £9 for children 4 to 15 years old plus booking fee and from £14 for adults plus booking fee. Children under 3 go free. Grotto tickets can be added to your basket from just £9 per child.

The walk will take approximately 1-2 hours, depending on how long you dwell at each installation. If you are visiting Santa’s Grotto, visitors are expected to be at the Castle for approximately 2 hours. You are welcome to walk around as many times as you like.

Tickets will have allocated time slots for guests to arrive in. First entry is at 4pm and last entry is at 7pm. It is recommended tickets are booked online in advance to avoid disappointment, but there is a small box-office for walk-ins. Walk-in price is £2 more for adults and £1 more for a child.
