18 November 2022 to 1st January 2023
Cinderella will be going to the ball at Belvoir this Christmas as the beautiful Regency castle is transformed into an immersive experience bringing the rags to riches fable to life.
The award-winning theatre design company CLW Event design are transforming the Leicestershire castle to bring the beloved fairytale of Cinderella to life in a series of breathtaking scenes staged in the ornate rooms.
Follow Cinderella’s story around the Castle, starting in the main Guard Room entrance hall, revealing two contrasting worlds in one house. Lavish jewel colours and glamour pop for Cinderella’s stepmother and her daughters while Cinderella’s world is decorated in a gentle naturalistic fashion to represent her simple life.
Of course, no story could be complete without seeing Cinderella climbing into her gold pumpkin carriage, this time in a bespoke peacock gown inspired by the insignia of the Castle, leaving behind her glass slipper on the steps below.
The grand finale sees Cinderella marry her Prince Charming in the Regent’s Gallery with the bride dressed in a beautiful wedding gown complemented by a pair of giant crystal-dressed Christmas trees.
A truly magical experience, Christmas at Belvoir is also the place to meet Santa Claus. In a cosy enchanted woodland grotto tucked away in the Castle’s Old Kitchen, Santa Claus and his helpers will be preparing for Christmas. Available to book separately, Santa’s grotto is guaranteed to bring the magic of Christmas to life for little ones, they will enjoy storytelling from Santa’s Elves, meet Santa and take home a gift to save for the big day.

About Belvoir Castle
Located in rural Leicestershire’s Vale of Belvoir, Belvoir Castle has been the home to the Duke of Rutland’s family since 1067. Pronounced ‘beaver’, its name derives from the meaning ‘beautiful view’ in French and dates back to Norman times.

About The Engine Yard
Carefully restored from Victorian buildings and surrounded by woodland, the Engine Yard is the first retail village of its kind in the local area. Originally constructed in 1850, the Engine Yard has a wealth of history, and was once the hub of the estate with a saw mill, wagon making shop and wheelwright’s shop. Today it’s home to a distinctive selection of shops and experiences right next to Belvoir Castle.
