Wentworth By The Sea’s annual “Illumination” Virtually or with Reservations!

Wentworth’s annual Illumination makes a festive occasion of lighting up the grand Victorian hotel symbolizing the beginning of the holiday season in New Castle!

The annual Illumination and Toy Drive hosted by Wentworth by the Sea experience will be a little different this year. There is so much holiday cheer to spread they have recreated this local tradition for us both virtually and safely for in person visitors.

The Illumination will NOT be available to the public this year. To join the fun virtually, please follow their Facebook + Instagram pages on December 1 from 5-7pm to access the Wentworth holiday magic from your phone.

As the Illumination draws a very large crowd each year and with current safety and social distancing guidelines, they have made the decision to shift the event so it can be enjoyed by overnight hotel guests and restaurant guests only, with three ways to enjoy the evening:

1. Book an Overnight Family Package – includes overnight accommodations on December 1, hot cocoa and cookies upon arrival, and access to the Illumination event. Rates start at $279.
Book here!

2. Date Night Holiday Light Package – includes overnight accommodations on December 1, a boozy hot cocoa/coffee and cookies upon arrival, dinner for two at SALT, and access to the Illumination event. Rates start at $399.
Book here!

3. Dinner at SALT – On Tuesday, December 1, dinner at SALT will be by reservation only. Diners can enjoy a meal at SALT prior to or following the Illumination. Call 603.373.6566 to make reservations.

The Toy Drive will be open Monday – Thursdays, from 11:30am – 4pm from December 1 – 17. Stop in any time with your unwrapped, unopened gift to help support children of the Seacoast and enjoy 10% off at SALT! (Alcohol excluded.)

The excitment and holiday feels for this event will not change this year. Santa will be in his sleigh, with elves to collect Christmas lists from the kids. There will also be live music with carolers signing all the festive favorites!

Also the unveiling of the over-sized and magical Gingerbread House made by the talended chefs of Wentworth by the Sea will be on display! .
