ESTATE, WEST SUSSEX November 24, 2021 – January 1, 2022 This year, Light Up Trails will present a mile-long light trail to illuminate the historic Cowdray Estate in the South Downs National Park. Inspired by the theme of “joy”, light art showpieces include artist Benjamin Clegg’s surreal Rainbow in the Dark and Tudor Christmas, which will illuminate Cowdray’s ruins, once one of England’s most important early Tudor houses.
Other scenes will include an enchanting Star Drop Wood, a festive Snow Globe, and a Tree of Joy and Written in the Stars, which provides visitors with the opportunity to write per- sonal illuminated messages. Light Up Trails founders Libby Battaglia and Lucinda Croft previously presented a light trail at the Wiston Estate in nearby Pulborough.
“There’s something elemental about a light in the darkness that draws us to it,”
“On a dark night, the presence of light brings us together and makes us feel closer. In the hands of artists, that becomes a magical thing, showing us the way and reacting to our feelings and emotions.”
