Out & About: See Alnwick Garden’s new winter lights

The Duchess of Alnwick officially switched at the lightshow on Thursday night and it’ll transform dark evenings right into a stunning light show.

It is a fitting addition to at least one of the world’s most extraordinary contemporary gardens, that is known for its Poison Garden and for having the world’s largest tree house, in addition to a bamboo maze, walled garden and an impressive Grand Cascade water feature.

From this weekend there’ll even be the garden’s first festive market, organised by the team behind Edinburgh’s Christmas market, and family fun on the Big Winter Adventure inclusive of workshops and activities similar to a trail throughout the gardens to listen to stories from Jack Frost.

Every weekend from December to March you can too join a tremendous Lazy Adventure, a walk throughout the grounds followed by all-day breakfasts on the Pavilion Cafe.

The café is usually definitely the right place to view the flicker Two lights, designed by Chris Thornton, the guy behind the lights in Sloane Square in Chelsea, London.

They should be on every evening from November 24 to January 5, 4pm to 7pm.
