Marketing & Business Development Manager, Amanda Blair, said: “Unfortunately we can’t run our Starlight event, which would normally include illuminations and activities, this year, but we want to give visitors the unique experience to ride on the trams in the dark, which is why we have selected 3 days in October during most schools’ half term. We recommend visitors bring torches if they wish to take the Woodland Walk.

“We would normally end the season on Sunday 1st November this year, but we have decided to offer an additional weekend, as we were closed for over three months due to Covid-19. We’re hoping that the weather is kind, and that people will make the most of the last weekend before the winter shut down for essential maintenance.”

Pre-booking admissions tickets is not required, although visitors will need to book a timed ticket for tram rides on arrival. There are no tram stops on the tram journey, to help ensure social distancing and the safety of passengers, volunteers, and staff.
