POLAR returns to Robin Hill this Christmas…
Join Robin Hill for the second instalment of their winter woodland experience this December. The festive POLAR story continues on selected dates from 12th – 23rd with an evening of magical Christmas delight.
From beautifully illuminated woodland and immersive walk-throughs to wreath-making, a local market and delicious food, the event promises to provide festive cheer this year. Plus, for the first time, the star of the show, Pippa the polar bear, will be joined by a few very special guests from sister park, Blackgang Chine.
“We’ve been overwhelmed by the support of our guests this year and simply couldn’t let Christmas go by without celebration. 2020 has been difficult for everyone and given that POLAR is about the magic of imagination, it seemed right to bring a few Blackgang Chine characters over too. From all of us at Vectis Ventures, we’d like to wish our guests, staff, suppliers and partners a very Merry Christmas!” – Alec Dabell, Managing Director.
As you step into the open air, you’ll wander through glistening woodland and encounter a whole series of wonderful experiences along your POLAR journey. Support local traders and crafters at the POLAR Market, where you’ll find a selection of festive delights; perfect for gift ideas and stocking fillers.
Continue through the triumphal marble arch and into the POLAR Village where the Woodland Ponds area is transformed into a true winter wonderland. Enjoy heart-warming tastes of Christmas, finished with a mulled drink or decadent hot chocolate; all accompanied by music from the Christmas Carolettes.
For your chance to meet Pippa the polar bear, head into the POLAR Hollow where you’ll be invited into a young boy’s dream world. All is not as it seems in this immersive, interactive walkthrough; toys come to life and you never know who you could meet along the way. Dodos? Dinosaurs? Fairies? Anything can happen when dreams really do come true.
This year’s event will also see the return of the popular Decoration Workshops and Robin Hill’s beloved outdoor rides will remain open throughout the evening after undergoing their winter makeover.
POLAR will go ahead in accordance with Government guidelines and the park’s exemplary COVID-safe measures will remain in-place.
