Event details

Events at Bedgebury National Pinetum and Forest - Open 4.30pm, from 9 December 4.15 pm

Surround yourself with sparkle this Christmas as the after dark trail at Bedgebury lights up for it's third year in 2020. You'll find new moments to share with friends and family and brand new magical lights for winter nights.

Enter a world festooned with seasonal cheer enhanced by a soundtrack of festive classics. Wander beneath unique tree canopies drenched in Christmas colour. Immerse yourself within woodland neon strings as bouncing lines glow in the moonlight. Discover singing trees rising high into the night sky and a forest saturated in ever-changing beams of colour. Stroll beside colour-changing water-side reflections and under trees dripping with silvery shards of light, snowflakes and stars.

Explore the light maze and look out for giant baubles and snowflakes where you least expect them. The tunnel of light returns with twinkling splendour and this year, why not pause for a moment of quiet reflection at the fire garden, aglow with hundreds of flickering flames.

Have a holly, jolly Christmas and complete your walk under the stars with spiced cider, mulled wine or hot chocolate*.  

Don’t forget to glimpse Father Christmas and his elf amongst the pines, spruce and firs along the way.
