The Christmas spirit truly sparkled against the dramatic backdrop of Kilmarnock’s Dean Castle in this enchanting, illuminated wonderland.

Drawing on our extensive experience delivering innovative events, festivals and celebrations, GC Live designed a magical experience for all the family, including those with additional support needs.

And the exciting package of attractions we unwrapped, from Santa’s Grotto to light and sound installations across the Country Park, attracted 25,000 visitors to the historic grounds.

Working with technical partners 21CC Group, which produced the event, we devised and delivered the Christmas-inspired concept which included festive soundscapes and lasers flooding the skies with colour.

The Starry Nights Trail featured the nation’s largest star-shaped Starry Night tunnel installation, entertainment from Twinkle the Elf, a visit to Icicle Land, the Grinch, magical reindeer and delightful water snowmen. The trail concluded with a spectacular Nutcracker-inspired finale with dancing waters.

The event attracted significant national media attention and, through our charity partnership with West FM radio station’s Cash for Kids, GC Live helped to raise almost £6,500 to support disadvantaged children across Ayrshire and give them a better Christmas.

‘We knew it would be good, but it completely exceeded expectations and blew the whole family away such a magical experience’
