Wollaton Hall lit up with Christmas Lights

Festive Extravaganza Makes a Welcome Return

After a second successful year, organisers of the incredibly popular Christmas at Wollaton festive lights experience are opening for general sale on Monday 11th April.

Now in its third year, after two sell-out events, this December Wollaton Hall & Deer Park will again host a breath-taking Christmas lights trail, as the formal gardens are transformed once more as night falls.

A major attraction for festive visitors, Christmas at Wollaton Hall 21 was attended by 100,000 people, who travelled from across the region and beyond to marvel at the wonderous displays of lights and lasers.

The stunning show, which could be seen from miles around, were specially designed to complement the natural landscape and architecture of the gothic Hall and Gardens.  

After its premiere in 2020, Christmas at Wollaton has got better and better every year, and last time included a new Christmas market and open-air terrace serving festive food and drink.  More additions for the 2022 event are soon to be revealed.

This Christmas, from 2 December, visitors will be able to enjoy the breath-taking outdoor light installation. Wollaton Hall & Deer Park which is run by Nottingham City Council is working in partnership with award-winning event team Kilimanjaro to deliver the event. The whole attraction is outdoors with a lovely festive feast of light for all the family. 

Over 90 per cent of those who attended in 2021 said they’d make a return visit, so tickets are expected to sell out fast.

A spokesperson commented

“We’re excited for another spectacular Christmas event and want to thank everyone who has visited Christmas at Wollaton so far, for supporting our event. 

“We’re delighted that, as a special thank you, we’re able to offer Nottingham City Council tax payers a special discount.”

Visitors loved previous events, commenting

“Even more magical than last year. I think it’s one of those that will grow and grow and become an unmissable tradition.” “It was a magical experience for our family. The lights are amazing, every part of the trail was stunning and unique. The music around the trail is beautiful and goes with each section. All the staff on the trail are very welcoming. We loved the added toasted marshmallows and the Christmas Market too. Amazing experience for us all.”

….“We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Wollaton lights this evening. It was the most magical experience. Our boys absolutely loved walking around the trail, in particular, the finale lights on the house with the little mouse and all the woodland animal lights and deer at the beginning.”

In this exciting and unique seasonal spectacle, children and adults of all ages will again be captivated by another brand new, dazzling multi-sensory experience of light and sound. A seasonal classic with a contemporary twist.

Christmas at Wollaton will have pre-bookable slots staggered every 30 minutes. Christmas at Wollaton will run from Friday 2nd December 2022 until Sunday 1st January 2023 (and will be closed on 5th  and 25th December).
