New festive lights spectacular set for Christmas at Wollaton

This festive season, Wollaton Hall will host its first magical Christmas lights trail, as the formal gardens are transformed for the first time ever into an enchanted light spectacle - Christmas at Wollaton Hall

Visitors will be able to enjoy a unique socially distanced outdoor light installation with an enchanting, winter paradise including a 2km (1¼ mile) illuminated trail of discovery created with four magical lands, specially designed to fit into the natural landscape of the Hall and Gardens.  

People of all ages will be captivated by this visually stunning mix of fire, light, and sound. A seasonal classic with a contemporary twist. 

Visitors will begin their journey in a fairy-lit woodland winterscape. As they move through the festive forest they will be greeted by the awesome sight of the Windswept Trees, a unique ethereal sculpture made by renowned artist Hannelora Johannson 

 A stunning light tunnel then brings people to a magical realm awash with colour, a contrasting bold contemporary Christmas colour-scape designed to celebrate the full spectrum of vibrant Christmas colours. 

Then onto the Camellia glass house which will be bathed in an amber glow and the formal gardens where fire and flame meet flora and fauna. As visitors enter the final zone there will be a dramatic finale designed to take your breath away. 

As well as enjoying the dazzling lighting display there will be the opportunity along the route to enjoy festive food and drink from the city’s finest independent vendors, with traditional mulled wine and roast chestnuts. As well as Wollaton’s seasonal market and Christmas bar, perfectly positioned in the courtyard at the end of the trail.  

Light up your Christmas at Wollaton Hall and make your Christmas extra special.
