Robin Hill is launching the second instalment of its winter wonderland Polar story this December.

A Covid-compliant version of the Christmas event will take place from December 12 to 23.

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 special guests from sister park, Blackgang Chine.

Alec Dabell, managing director of Vectis Ventures, which operates the parks, said: “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. "

Local traders and crafters will be at the Polar Market, where there will be 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 off with a mulled drink or decadent hot chocolate; all

accompanied by music from the Christmas Carolettes.

A Robin Hill spokesperson said: "For your chance to meet Pippa the polar bear, head into the POLAR Hollow where you’ll be invited into a young boy’s dreamworld.

"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."

There’s limited availability and tickets are available online now for just £17 per person; with an exclusive 20 per cent discount for Frequent Visitor Passholders available until November 6.
