INDOOR TRAIL EXPERIENCE
In 2018 we created 'Cinderella' our first indoor trail experience through the State Rooms of Blenheim Palace. In 2019 we returned with 'Alice in the Palace', in 2021 we produced 'The story of The Nutcracker' and in 2022 we returned with 'The kingdom of the Snow Queen'. This year we will present The Story of Sleeping Beauty with a contemporary twist.
The Story of Sleeping Beauty
Blenheim Palace will be transformed this winter into the setting for the classic fairytale of Sleeping Beauty for a new generation. Each room will tell a different chapter in Sleeping Beauty’s story using props and festive decorations.
On the way to Aurora’s candle-lit bed chamber, visitors will wander through the Evil Fairy’s spooky wooded lair and into the castle frozen in time. There will be spinning wheels and fluttering fairies to watch out for as they follow the Lilac Fairy on her quest to reawaken Sleeping Beauty in the castle after 100 very sleepy years…
The Kingdom of the Snow Queen
Each of the Palace rooms was exquisitely transformed and filled with hidden surprises. The glistening Land of Snowflakes was filled with a silvery frost-covered forest and the Kingdom of Ice was adorned with larger-than-life shimmering crystals.
The Snow Queen built on the success of 2021’s Nutcracker and Sugar Plum Fairy encounters at Blenheim Palace provided by Rusticus – experts in improvised performance and joyful encounters nationwide.
The Story of The Nutcracker
In 2021 the Palace rooms were exquisitely transformed and filled with hidden surprises – from the toymaker’s workshop on a frosty Christmas Eve; through the glistening Land of Snow and onto the candy-cane Kingdom of Sweets adorned with the sweetest of treats and larger-than-life gingerbread men. The story of The Nutcracker was a fairy-tale world where nothing was quite as it seems, from a dashing Nutcracker Prince and an army of mice, to a Sugar Plum Fairy and a music box with a difference.
This magical experience was first installed in the State Rooms at Blenheim Palace in 2018.
Alice in the Palace
This truly enchanting trip to Wonderland delighted visitors of all ages, when we returned to Blenheim Palace in 2019.
