Two new major light installations confirmed for Christmas at Kingston Lacy 2022

Visitors to Christmas at Kingston Lacy will be able to enjoy two new enchanting light installations at the festive trail, which runs for just over three weeks during the Christmas period.

Laser Garden, by Mandylights, and Crystal Garden by Output Arts, are the latest installations to be revealed for the Dorset trail, which will open from 2 December until Christmas Eve.

Laser Garden uses up to 100 custom-made laser effects, to immerse crowds in thousands of slowly rotating coloured laser beams that sparkle amongst theatrical fog.

Crystal Garden is made up of clusters of giant glowing shards that illuminate the winter night and create a fantastical festive landscape.

Matthew Findlay, Head of UK Trails for Sony Music/Raymond Gubbay Ltd, said: “We are hugely excited by the plans for this year’s trail, with artists creating beautiful, new installations which will provide even more ‘wow’ factor for 2022.”

Create new traditions and everlasting memories and marvel at other installations including Heart Walk, 12 Days of Christmas made from wicker and Meadow of Light, all set to an emotive, choreographed soundtrack. Don’t forget to glimpse the friendly Father Christmas along the way.

Independent street food vendors bring a delicious twist with tasty treats on offer. Complete your walk under the stars with a *spiced winter warmer or *hot chocolate shared with friends and family. Everyone loves toasting a marshmallow over an open fire and the artisan *marshmallow stall gives visitors the chance to warm their hands and enjoy this sweet outdoor tradition.

Christmas at Kingston Lacy provides a special way to celebrate the festive season with an unmissable outdoor experience. The trail is designed for visitors of all ages to enjoy.
