What Last Year’s Visitors Have Said

We brought my mum and our three children here … it was FANTASTIC!! So so magical. A surprise around every corner. Truly beautiful, we will be letting everyone know about this amazing event!

Everyone on site was lovely too. We will be coming back next year for sure.

Thank you for such a special evening!!!


We love coming to the Spectacle and loved this year’s theme! Our child has ASD and this event is perfect as it’s not an overload of fair rides and loud sounds. He thoroughly enjoyed himself and was amazed by all the lights… and us adults had a really lovely time too


This was our first Spectacle of Light, it won’t be our last… SIMPLY STUNNING! So well laid out, the perfect length to walk. A good selection of food, treats and hot drinks at reasonable prices. Friendly and helpful staff. It was a magical evening and the Peter Pan theme was brilliant.

Tip – make sure you linger on the main lawn part with the glitter ball for some surprises – Wow!
