Winter is approaching and from Friday 26 November Nottingham’s Wollaton Hall & Deer Park will again be transformed into an enchanting, unique outdoor light installation with a newly designed trail...


With last year’s event selling out and receiving glowing reviews, Christmas at Wollaton has been extended and will open on Friday 26 November 2021 and run until Sunday 9 January 2022.

Although this year will see a completely new trail, some firm favourites will return but with a twist and an extra sprinkle of magic. Along the route you will find picture perfect moments as well as festive treats and new for 2021 is the Christmas Market, available to all visitors to the park. Perfect for a family treat, an early Christmas present, a place to come together with friends or a dazzling date night, Christmas at Wollaton will be the place to be seen this year.

VIP and Twilight packages have been added this year to give visitors a variety of different Christmas at Wollaton experiences. The VIP package includes priority entry to the trail and exclusive access to a VIP Terrace Bar with drinks vouchers included. Whilst the Twilight package offers a special intimate viewing with limited capacity, car parking and drinks voucher.  


Bought once again by Kilimanjaro Live, the atmospheric trail is designed by Manchester based lighting company dbnAudile, known for their exhibitions and art installations across the country and working in collaboration with Salford-based outdoor arts specialists Walk The Plank, who have worked on several UK Capitals of Culture and the Commonwealth Games. Internationally acclaimed projection artists Illuminos will also feature, renowned for their work on high profile events such as Les Troyens for the Lyric Opera in Chicago and the 2017 Capital of Culture closing ceremony in Paphos, Cyprus. 

Don’t miss out on this burgeoning seasonal classic with a contemporary twist, which is beginning to look like an annual tradition.
