Come and join us at the magnificent Cowdray Park as we host a unique, Christmas light trail after dark in the grounds of this historic country estate in the heart of the stunning South Downs National Park. Inspired by the theme ‘Joy’ the work created by a select band of international artists casts the landscape in a new light, illuminating the nights sky, with millions of sparkling lights, interactive installations and joyful sounds. Look out for our festive Snow Angels, Star Drop Woods and write your own illuminated messages with ‘Written in the Stars’. You can even watch a Tudor Christmas come to life on the ruins and discover what brought them joy at this most wonderful time of the year!
As you wander under the starry winter skies and step back into the 16th century, you will find on offer, scrumptious, tasty, treats to enjoy along the way including spicey winter warmers, delicious crepes, and hot chocolate mountains!
