Step Inside Winterville With Me

Happy New Year guys - woah, how quick has 2017 gone! If, like me, you are still clutching onto the festive holidays (I am so not ready to say goodbye to Christmas) then I hope you like this post on my recent trips (yes, it was so good I went twice) to Winterville.

I have been dying to show you this awesome place but got caught up in the festive mayhem so apologies for the lateness! But if, like me, your favourite things include Christmas, Cinema & food then be sure to pop this place on your list for next year. 

If you're not already convinced..

Reason 1: It's festive af.
I bloody love Christmas and I do all I can to squeeze as much festivity into December as I can. Everyone loves a bitta Winter Wonderland and, if they dont, my guess is that it is because it can get super busy - that or you are just a Scrooge. Well, fear no more. Winterville, being a lot smaller and having lesser of a reputation, is no where near as cramped but still boasts all the festive fun - ice rink, Plonk Golf and a roller disco just to name a few!

Reason 2: The food is uh-mazing!
No seriously, the first time I went I had this halloumi & chicken wrap *dribble* and I literally went on about it for about 2 weeks after.. I'll pop a photo below so you can see what the fuss is all about. Oh my god, don't get me started on the brownies.. h e a v e n! You have the choice of Chocolate Orange, Oreo, Salted Caramel & Nutella - the right choice being all of them, obviously. They also heat them up for you.. is there anything better than a warm chocolate brownie? And then there's the Hot Chocolate with marshmellow fluff from ChinChin - sounds pretty amazing doesn't it? Well it looks bloody darn good too.. which is why I couldn't help myself! Basically, everything else aside, you could just go for the food.. yeah, that good.

Reason 3: Backyard Cinema.
This for me was the sole reason for visiting Winterville in the first place. I love the cinema and had THE best time at their Miami Beach back in the summer. Basically, I'm now their #1 fan so it was a no-brainer when the tickets for The Winter Night Garden went on sale.
Just stepping into the cinema is an experience in itself, think Narnia meets enchanting forest! Naturally, once inside I went straight to the bar to stock up on snacks (plenty of popcorn) and couldn't resist their 'Gingertini' - a cocktail with a festive twist. Not only did it taste pretty darn good but you also keep the cute lil gingerbread man bottle - win win!
I have never felt quite as festive when watching a Christmas film as I did when watching Home Alone and Love Actually here - it really is a heart-warming and charming experience and I literally cannot recommend it enough. And, although Winterville has come to an end this year (booo), Backyard cinema still have their Snow Kingdom open to enjoy - with dates available up to March. I've got my tickets booked for Bridesmaids (one of THE best chickflicks ever) and I can't wait to see what magic this one brings!

Keep an eye out for my next Backyard Cinema blog post and let me know of your own experiences here or if you're planning to go!

Here's to more Backyard Cinema dates in 2018!
