About

This Christmas, as twilight falls across Chester Zoo a magical Christmas sorting office comes to life. The zoo will be transformed into an enchanting world full of illumination and spellbinding theatrical adventure.

The Lanterns at Chester Zoo will be unlike anything you’ve experienced before.  With incredible lanterns, performance and a sprinkle of Chester Zoo magic, it’s a perfect, heart-warming and memorable festive event for all generations.

The lantern route will be filled to the brim with sacks of lantern toys and boxes of lantern presents piled high. Father Christmas and his helpers will be hard at work ensuring that all of the Christmas wishes can come true.

You can post your own letters to Father Christmas and imagine what the precious animals might wish for too. Along the route you’ll see magnificent animal-inspired fairy tale scenes that will whisk you away to another world. 

This year’s event has been lovingly created by Wild Rumpus, specialists in creating extraordinary worlds, telling incredible stories and bringing to life moments of wonder for all ages.

The Lanterns at Chester Zoo is always hugely popular so we recommend that you book your place well in advance to ensure that you don’t miss out.
