Christmas Tree Wonderland returns to light up Bournemouth in 2019

Following the extraordinary success of the inaugural Christmas Tree Wonderland Festival in 2018 , Bournemouth is again getting ready to stage a magical , mystical and memorable event from November 15th 2019 – January 2nd 2020.


The centre piece of this free, family friendly extravaganza is the glittering Christmas Tree Wonderland Trail of 100 diverse and dazzling trees , extraordinary illuminations and light installations which run from the seafront through the Victorian Lower Gardens to the bustling Alpine Market in The Square. Bournemouth’s own Wonderland Tree stands 60ft tall and proud, performing dazzling musical light shows and enchanting everyone who comes to visit. Meanwhile stunning replicas of international Christmas Trees make a return to the trail, representing Moscow, St Petersburg, Warsaw, Bethlehem and Seattle.

New attractions for 2019 include cascading lights at the new Smugglers Cove Adventure Golf at Pier Approach; a giant 7 metre golden reindeer at Beales place in the centre of town; the crimson red ten-metre Tree of Light in the middle of the Trail and the enchanting Polar Walk, nestled above the uplit bandstand , watched over by Narnia-esque Polar Bears. Away from the Gardens a gigantic beautiful walk-through bauble lights up the Triangle, while twinkling Gingerbread People can be found at the Lansdowne.

This year Santa and his elves are located in Beales Department Store in the centre of town and for added festive flourish there is the atmospheric outdoor SKATE rink , hot chocolate and mulled wine at The Alpine Bar and of course endless Christmas shopping at the Festive Market
