Twixmas; that time of year between the big day and New Year. It’s usually a little sleepy, but we recommend that you get out and about and enjoy everything Cheshire has on offer. If you fancy more than cooking leftovers and watching Christmas TV, there’s more than enough to keep you entertained this Twixmas. From glittering light trails to spectacular shows why not make your Twixmas one to remember this year?


Join Mog on her Christmas Trail

If you’ve got littler ones who need to expend some energy why not head to Dunham Masset for Mog’s Christmas Trail. Based on Judith Kerr’s beloved cat Mog this interactive, daytime family trail is great for families with kids this Twixmas. This shorter trail encourages little legs with growing imaginations to discover trail points around the Dunham Massey Visitor Centre, historic Stables and nearby, accessible parkland. Mog’s Christmas Trail is included with entry to Dunham Massey.

Soak up some pantomime magic at Tatton Park

Still feeling the festive spirit? Luckily Tatton Park’s magical Once Upon a Pantomime is open in the Mansion this Twixmas. Let the music and magic whisk you through enchanted woodlands and into magical fairy tale forests, from the grandeur of the state rooms through to the servants' quarters. Look out for our sleeping beauty and fly away to Neverland before looking up to Jack’s show-stopper beanstalk that’s taken over the Cupola Hall!

Make sure to see a pantomime

Twixmas could be the perfect time for a panto and there are some fantastic shows this year. At Crewe’s Lyceum there’s Aladdin, starring Louie Spence as the Spirit of the Ring, Jamie Kenna (Coronation Street) as Abanazar, Kiera-Nicole (Milkshake) as Jasmine and returning for his sixth year, Crewe’s treasured dame, Malcolm Lord as Widow Twankey!

An intergalactic Twixmas at Jodrell Bank

Get warm, cosy and festive at No. 25

Open daily from 10am -4pm on 28-31 December in Warrington’s Golden Square, At No. 25 is a free pop-up exhibition from artists Erica Wilkinson and Lauren Muir. The Warrington duo have created a Nordic-influenced space inspired by the term ‘Hygge’ which is all about feeling cosy, comfy and content.
