Christmas City


Using everything we’d learned from multiple drive-in cinema events, we set out to make the ultimate festive experience for all with Christmas City 2021.


Following the launch of Christmas City the year before, we had to go bigger and better with the event in 2021. That meant more festivities and more immersion than before. Our team transformed Trafford’s iconic Soccer Dome into a winter wonderland, complete with a cast of Santa’s elves, a Christmas wish postbox, and even a visit from the Grinch himself.

This event was to be fun for the whole family, so we had to have all bases covered. As well as giving children the opportunity to write to Santa and enjoy their favourite festive movies, a selection of films for adults and a fully stocked bar offered plenty for the grown-up crowd.

The true standout for this event was the highly effective world building from our team. From Santa’s mailroom to the candy cane forest, Christmas City lived up to its name and provided people with a magical escape. This was made possible by the builders, designers, and engineers who make up the One Events team.


“Christmas City is so much more than just a drive-in cinema. Not only can you watch one of your favourite Christmas films on the big screen, but you can also enjoy lots of fun festive entertainment and lovely food whilst doing so. It makes a great Christmas day out which we highly recommend.” – FAMILY ON THE GO

“We had a great time! Characters/actors were so good even though we were put on the naughty list! The film and light show was a great experience. We highly recommend a visit and can’t wait to do it again!” – Nic Henderson
