Once again, in our second year at Clonakilty’s Model Village, we turned their popular attraction into an interactive Christmas extravaganza featuring animatronics, live actors, and elaborate sets. Building on the success of the previous year, we incorporated some of the crowd-favourite elements while expanding and enhancing other areas to create an even more memorable experience for visitors.

Starting with the design phase, we created a fully immersive, enchanting Christmas wonderland that included everything from the sets and props to animatronics, lights, and sound effects. We carefully integrated our theatrical production with the unique and picturesque Clonakilty venue to provide a truly one-of-a-kind experience.

In addition to the technical aspects, we also trained the performers to ensure that they delivered an unforgettable immersive experience for each timed ticket show. Over the course of December, we held a total of 295 individual shows, each featuring a fully trained cast of performers who brought the magic of Christmas to life.

Experience the magic of Christmas in a fully immersive wonderland!”

Last winter, we were asked to create a vast outdoor immersive Christmas display scene for Janssen. The theme of the exhibit was a winter wonderland, complete with charming elf houses adorned with colorful baubles, candy canes, and lollipops, reminiscent of a typical elf winter village. Each house was thoughtfully designed to serve as a selfie spot for guests, allowing them to capture memorable photos as well as including an immersive element to the scenes. Additionally, the display boasted numerous Christmas trees that led visitors down a winding path of bark to a snow-dusted scene where they could meet Father Christmas sitting atop an enormous ice sculpture throne, surrounded by snow. The winter wonderland was enclosed by white fences adorned with decorative garlands, and the entire exhibit was illuminated with warm white twinkling lights.

Moreover, we also decked out the entrance to the Janssen building with festive decorations, including giant red and gold baubles festooning the garlands on the front archway. Nearby trees and bushes were also embellished with baubles, and a massive 40ft Christmas tree added to the merriment of the season.

We were approached by Ballyseedy Cafe to come up with designs for the Cafe for the upcoming Christmas season. Aiming for a traditional style Christmas scene in the front of the cafe with soft decoration, lights and atmosphere, as well as a more colourful kids zone for the play area at the back of the cafe- the below designs were created.

We were approached by Clonakilty’s Model Village in 2021 to transform their established attraction into a Christmas event space. This would be the Model Village’s first year working with us doing a live, interactive Christmas show with animatronics, live actors and set. After initial design stages we transformed the space into a fully immersive, magical Christmas wonderland. We provided full set, props, animatronics, lights, sound and a fully theatrical show whilst integrating our set around the unique and picturesque venue in Clonakilty.

We also provided performers and full training for the immersive experience to coincide with the timed tickets for each show, running for the month of December with a total of 295 individual shows.
