Event details


Join us at the most wonderful time of the year when over a million lights, twinkling reflections and seasonal sounds fill the air with festive fun at Bedgebury. 

Look forward to some together time with family and friends, as you discover sparkling tunnels of light, dancing lakeside reflections and our trees drenched in jewel-like colour. 

For a moment of reflection pause at mesmerising flickering flames in the fire garden, gaze up at larger-than-life illuminations and towering pines rising into the night sky. Don’t forget to glimpse Father Christmas along the way.

Enjoy tasty seasonal treats at the Bedgebury café or a delicious twist from our crew of talented street food vendors. Have yourself a holly, jolly Christmas and complete your walk under the stars with a spiced winter warmer or hot chocolate shared with someone special.

Your very merriest Christmas starts here. Plan now to secure the date and time of your choice. Limited capacity with timed entry.
