KINGSTON Lacy has revealed plans for its brand-new Christmas Light Trail – a full six months ahead of the big day.

A magical trail, featuring enchanting illuminations and classical Christmas tunes, will illuminate the garden of the National Trust’s country mansion, backed by Sony Music.

Visitors to the park will be able to enjoy the after-dark illuminated trail, created by Culture Creative, for a whole month, from December 3 to January 2, 2022.

A spokesman from Kingston Lacy said: “It’s the most wonderful time of the year when twinkling lights and seasonal sounds fill the air with festive fun.

“Wrap up warm and be transported into a winter wonderland where you will discover sparkling tunnels of light, walk under giant baubles and beneath trees drenched in jewel-like colour.

“Spend time together and create everlasting memories as you wander between the specially chosen illuminations, all choreographed to a soundtrack of Christmas classics.

“Pause at the mesmerising flickering flames in the fire garden, and don’t forget to glimpse Father Christmas along the way.”

Independent street food vendors will be serving up a spiced winter warmer or hot chocolate among other refreshments.

The park will open from 4.30pm and last entry is at 8pm, with the grounds closing at 10pm.

Advanced tickets start from £14, with a family of two adults and two children able to attend for £60.

Free entry is offered to carers and children aged two or younger.
