Frequently Asked Questions

What about Covid-19?

You can book with confidence for our Spectacle of Light illuminated trail. Be assured that the safety and well-being of our visitors is of the utmost importance to us and we are continually monitoring and responding to the COVID-19 pandemic situation as it evolves.

Current plans in place for the comfort and reassurance of our visitors include:

  • Reducing the number of tickets on sale within each time slot from previous years, to allow visitors more space
  • Revising the trail route to one-way and reducing the chance of pinch points to manage visitor flow
  • Additional cleaning and having hand sanitisation stations where appropriate
  • Catering facilities are being designed to allow social distancing

In the unlikely situation that we need to cancel the whole event, you can transfer your ticket to the following year, or get a refund.

Do I Need A Ticket In Advance?

Yes, you must purchase a ticket prior to the event if you don’t want to pay full price. The earlier you purchase a ticket, the greater chance you have to guarantee your date and entry time slot. Each time slot has a set capacity and we expect the Spectacle to be extremely popular. We recommend you book as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
