Welcome to the Support Centre

Is there a relaxed session at Christmas at Dunham Massey?

Wednesday 29th November and Tuesday 12th December at 16:00 and 16.15 will see the Illuminated Trail open early for audiences with specific access requirements.


This is to encourage a slightly more staggered arrival as volumes return to standard levels from 5:15pm.


These sessions are created for young people and adults who would love to experience the Christmas at Dunham Massey Illuminated trail without the usual numbers of people and at reduced audio volumes. These sessions will also be early enough that they will just about start in twilight making it a less daunting transition in to the dark.


The capacity of these sessions will be limited to ensure that the trail remains less crowded and more relaxed. Audiences will be the first group on-site and therefore all areas will be relatively clear.


It should be noted that on many of our trails the path network is not tarmac, and although there are stewards along the route to assist you, the trail will follow the natural contours of the venue. When booking, please talk to our staff about any additional support you may need for exiting the illuminated trail through quieter areas or help with parking closer to the start of the trail.


Ticket prices for these relaxed access sessions are the same as the rest of illuminated trail - with free carer tickets where required. To book these sessions, please click here.
