Festive fun for all the family around Redditch this December

Redditch Editorial 13th Dec, 2017

THE Christmas holidays are almost here and with presents already under the tree, cash-strapped parents in Redditch may be wondering how they are going to keep the kids entertained throughout December.

To help families save a pretty penny, has put together a list of activities for a group of four to do for under £60 in and around Redditch.

– Get creative – This holiday season, get creative and save money by decorating your home with home-made Christmas decorations. Keep your kids entertained by making them on a wet and windy winter day and adorn the tree with handmade ornaments, dress up your front door with a creative wreath, and giving cute DIY gifts to loved ones.

Cost: Depending on how much you need to buy – and how resourceful you can be, as little as £5 for the materials.

– See a show – pay a visit to The Old Rep theatre in Birmingham and enjoy the magical adventures of Alice in Wonderland. This modem adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s classic tale follows Alice on her adventures through the enchanted and extraordinary Wonderland, meeting the likes of the Queen of Hearts and White rabbits along the way.

Cost: A family ticket for four people, two adults and two children is £55.20

– Go on a Santa safari – pay a visit to the West Midland Safari Park in Bewdley, Worcestershire where you and the little ones can enjoy a Santa safari. With a winter wonderland complete with fake snow, festive characters and lots of lovely lights, the park is transformed again when it starts to get dark too.

Cost: The Santa Safari pre-booked prices are £19.99 for adults (including a Santa visit, hot drink and mince pie), £15.99 for children aged 3-15 and £7.50 for under threes (includes a Santa visit, photo with Santa to take home, choice of gift, cookie, drink and a Santa trail gift).
