Cheshire Oaks has pulled out all the stops this Christmas with the launch of its very own festive drive-in cinema and Winter Village.

The designer outlet is giving guests an evening of ‘movie magic under the stars’ with the return of their popular drive-in cinema nights, with a 7pm showing of Elf  kicking off the festivities on Tuesday December 7th. 

The iconic family favourite Home Alone will then be shown the following evening on Wednesday December 8th at 8pm.

And in true Christmas spirit, all proceeds made from the drive-in cinema will be donated to Passion For Learning, the McArthurGlen 2021 Charity of The Year that helps children struggling to read and learn. 

Also on the bill at Cheshire Oaks this Christmas is the return of their iconic Winter Village, complete with magical VIP Christmas huts, each of which offers festive food and drink platters for groups of up to six people.

The restaurants and cafes on site have also thrown themselves into the festive spirit with a range of new menus boasting some tasty winter warmers, such as mulled wine, steaming hot chocolates and freshly baked mince pies.

And incase you hadn’t already heard, Cheshire Oaks this year boasts the UK’s tallest Christmas tree, standing at 100 feet tall and boasting 100,000 baubles and five miles of sparkling fairy lights.

The baubles, some of which are as large as footballs, are accompanied by 20,000 red bulbs to accompany the fairy lights, not only giving the tree that truly traditional festive look and feel, but putting all of our own Christmas tree efforts to shame.

Kenny Murray, general manager at Cheshire Oaks, said on the festive new addition: “Our Christmas tree has become a symbol of the spirit of the region and given the events of last year, we’re thrilled to be back with a tree which really makes a statement.”
