The story

Creating memories that last forever

Light Up Trails is the brainchild of Libby Battaglia and Lucinda Croft. Friends since school, the pair trained as dancers together and are serial encouragers of each other’s plans but had never worked together until – in the teeth of the pandemic – they raised some money to combine their shared passion for all things creative and collaborate in a new venture that would showcase light art to wider audiences.  Their first project ‘Light Up Wiston’ in 2020 was awarded ‘Commended’ status for ‘Event and festival of the Year’ by www.beautifulsouthawards.co.uk . After the success of Christmas at Cowdray 2021, this year is set to shine brighter and bigger than ever before!

Taking place during the darkest months of the year, Light Up Trails are a marvellous, magical way to mark the season of celebration in some of the UK’s most distinctive and stunning locations.
