The winter lights event will see the winter garden and riverside paths of these famous gardens illuminated at night - highlighting the natural beauty, shape and texture of the trees and shrubs in a unique, colourful way.

Music will drift through the trees, whilst entertainers will enthral visitors young and old alike.

The first weekend - November 29 to December 1 - is already sold out, so anyone wanting to take a magical tour of the grounds is urged to book promptly

Because last year’s first winter lights event at the National Trust property near Lode was so popular, a timed ticket system will be operating.

Entertainment will include local jazz band Hat Trick. along with entertainers touring the gardens, lit from head to toe in multi coloured lights, and performing tricks and stunts.

Redwoods Restaurant and the gift shop will be open.

Tickets are still available for Friday December 6 and 13, and Sunday December 8 and 15, between 5.30pm and 7.30pm. Both Saturdays of those weekends are sold out.

Tickets cost £10.50 for adults, £7.50 for children (5-17 years), and £32 for a family ticket (2 adults and up to 3 children).
