We are a Covid secure venue

The safety of our customers and staff is our main priority here at Thursford.

We are excited to announce a completely new event, Thursford’s Enchanted Journey of Light.  We have implemented several new precautions following the Government’s advice so that we can provide a safe and enjoyable visit for everyone.

Entry to the ‘The Enchanted Journey of Light will be on a pre-booked ticket entry only, so that we can monitor the number of visitors attending at any one time.

There might be some form of temperature check that all customers will need to partake in while entering the site, including staff.

If you are experiencing Coronavirus symptoms or have been in contact with anyone who has, please do not attend the event.

We will be operating a one-way system throughout the event and the booking time slots leave enough room for social distancing between each family group.

All shops will also have a clearly marked one-way system, entering through one door and leaving by another.  We will also monitor activity in the shops, and restrict if necessary, so that 2-metre distancing can be adhered to at all times.

Food and beverages will be available throughout the event, there will be tables and chairs for you to consume purchased food and beverages and these will be spaced appropriately to comply with social distancing.

In line with government guidelines, we are currently a card payment only venue.

Hand sanitizer stations will be placed around the site and we encourage you to use these when you spot them, as well as washing your hands regularly.

Toilets will be open and available around the site and will be extensively cleaned at regular intervals throughout the day.  We ask that you adhere to the safety signage whilst using them and respect social distancing rules.


Due to the new laws that have come into force you can book a maximum of 6 tickets per group if you are in the same household.

Please note, if you have already made a booking of 8 and you are from different households you will be asked to split into different groups upon arrival and asked to stay separate.

The journey is suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs.

Please note we do not supply wheelchairs for our events.

Photography and recording is allowed during all parts of the experience.  Photography and recording during the event is only allowed if it does not hold up other visitors on their journey, if this does happen, we reserve the right to stop photographs and recording to enable free flow of visitors.
