Festival of Light at Longleat

Dec 29, 2017 | Bits & Bobs

On Tuesday 5 December, 20 or so adventurous spirits braved a cold December day into deepest Wiltshire to view the Festival of Light at Longleat. Fortified beforehand by a welcome lunch at the Three Crowns, we boarded our coach for the 2 hour trip. We arrived at dusk to be greeted with a magical sight as we approached the main house and car park. This year’s theme was fairy tales and all around the house were fantastic displays of all the favourite tales in glorious technicolor lights including Cinderella, Snow White, Goldilocks and many more. Wherever you turned there was yet another amazing creation. Three hours passed so quickly just wandering in awe at the spectacle.

According to one of the guides, the displays were created by two Chinese artists who designed and erected them starting in around August. How brilliantly they did their work!

Thanks Reg for a great day out.
