Thank you to Silverstone for bringing a little festive cheer at the end of a very strange year. This December’s festivities were looking very limited, until venues such as Silverstone started thinking outside the box and creating Covid-safe Christmas experiences for families to enjoy.
Lap Land at Silverstone is an innovative Christmas light show experience, where families stay within their own cars and drive a lap of the famous circuit (albeit no faster than 5mph!), with no need to worry about mixing with others. Santa and his festive helper also make an appearance within their own little bubble (literally – inside a snow globe), waving as each car drives past.
The light show is very impressive, with the bright lasers lighting up the night sky, miles before you even reach the venue, all rounded up by a drive-in screening of The Snowman.
