"After a huge two week set-up it was great to see so many smiling faces and to see the children's reaction to the lights was heart-warming and made it all worth it.

"We must thank our wonderful sponsors in particular our principle sponsor the Chigwell group for making this attraction possible."

Christmas Land is open weeknights 4.30pm to 8pm and weekends 4.30pm to 8.30pm up until Christmas Eve, excluding December 12 and 18 when it will be closed.

Entry is £2.50 with all proceeds going to Havering Mind.
