Meet and greet Entertainment
Hold your breath. Make a wish. Tear off the wrapper, and suddenly, a brilliant flash of gold. You’ve found a ticket. The days of cabbage soup and sharing a bed are over.
This Christmas, come with us and you’ll be in a magical world! Meet us at the gates and present your ticket: in your wildest dreams you cannot imagine the marvellous surprises that await you.
See how the iconic Passenger Shed at Brunel’s Old Station at Temple Meads is magically transformed into the ultimate land of make believe: The Magic Chocolate Factory, but with a wintery twist.
Who knows what you’ll see? A shrinking corridor? An edible garden? You’ll have to keep that golden ticket safe to find out.
Feast on a magical mouth-watering meal, created especially for this season of events by the renowned Fosters Catering. Then, dance the night away with our makers of music and dreamers of dreams. We can’t wait to see you at the gates. Don’t forget what happened to the party-goers who suddenly got everything they always wanted…
They lived happily ever after.
