Press: Sir Harold Hillier Gardens to host stunning light trail

RENOWNED the world over for its collections of trees and rare plants, Sir Harold Hillier Gardens will be seen in an exciting new light this Christmas as the attraction throws open its gates after dark for a festive outdoor light art trail.

Created by Light Up Trails, the innovative Hampshire-based designers who specialise in bringing magic in light to inspirational places, Light Up Sir Harold Hillier Gardens promises a mile-long immersive experience with a series of art installations by some of Europe's most in-demand light artists and designers.

What's more, there will be a delicious array of amazing street food and festive drinks on offer at the gardens, near Romsey.

The installations are still being made, but Light Up Trails have revealed that Jermyn's House will be illuminated by a sea of tulips in LED lights in front and an animated Christmas story will be projected onto the walls of the house. Elsewhere, the famous pond at the Gardens will become the backdrop for a hypnotic show of moving lights and mirror and the Himalayan Valley has been chosen as the site of a breath-taking panorama telling the story of the four seasons in light. The light trail begins with Remembrance, which is followed by the shimmering star field of light and the stunning Joy installation. Other highlights include Rhizome with its light up stepping stones in the trees, the illuminated butterflies that make up Flutter, and Christmas Tree Lane in which the pine trees are lit up in an awe-inspiring rainbow of colours.
