Christmas at Blenheim Palace

 Blenheim Palace is a very special place to celebrate the festive season and we’re offering you the chance to win a family ticket to the exclusive preview of Christmas at Blenheim Palace – The story of The Nutcracker, The Illuminated Trail and the Christmas Market!

And you can win one family ticket for 4 people to the Preview of Christmas at Blenheim Palace on Thursday 18 November 2021.

Running from Thursday 18 November, the story of The Nutcracker re-imagined will exquisitely transform the Palace’s staterooms into a fairy-tale world where nothing is quite as it seems, from a dashing Nutcracker Prince and a larger than life Christmas tree to the Sugar Plum Fairy and a music box with a difference.

This fantastical winter wonderland is where the magic really begins. The Illuminated Trail will once again light up England’s finest view with over a million lights and lasers along a brand new route. 

For those that have been before the Christmas Cathedral returns resplendent in full twinkling splendour as well as the Water Terrace Fire Garden. Amid all the festive fun don’t forget to glimpse Father Christmas along the way.

You can also enjoy the Christmas Market in the Great Court (19 Nov – 19 Dec). Taking place beneath the stunning backdrop of the Palace, the traditional wooden chalets at the Christmas Market will be showcasing a range of festive treats including artisan food and drink producers.
