Enjoy an evening wandering along our enchanted woodland trail (just under a kilometer long) lit up with coloured lights, soft music and special illuminations creating a magical experience. Through the lit tunnel and into the orchard there will be golden stars to spot along the way winding around up to the Old Hall Lawn. Here you will find enchanted woodland creatures who will interact with the audience using LED lights and props on the Old Hall Lawn at set times. The charity water fountain enables visitors to take a moment to absorb the atmosphere of the lighting in arboretum. Walk around to the safari tent where fire dancing performances will take place under the sparkling glitter ball in front of the safari tent. This makes for an immersive and entertaining evening for all ages!
For those wanting a snack to enjoy along the trail there is the opportunity to purchase marshmallows to toast on the specially designed mini fire-pits under the stars on the Old Hall Lawn and also at the end of the trail enjoy locally produced food from a variety of street food vendors available around the fire-pit.
