Christmas at Wollaton sees international superstar Donny Osmond open their interactive festive experience in Nottinghamshire
A light trail has celebrated a successful opening period after opening to the public last Friday (December 1).
Christmas at Wollaton welcomed thousands onsite for an interactive festive experience.
A choir of more than 60 primary school children and their families from Robert Shaw Primary and Nursery School were invited to help open the popular month-long event alongside American superstar Donny Osmond.
Nottinghamshire’s only light trail opened to the public with never-seen-before illuminations and attractions.
Families, couples, and groups of friends took to Wollaton Hall and Deer Park to explore the all-new trail, which begins at the courtyard, winds through the Victorian Formal Gardens, and ends in front of the 15th-century house.
New interactive elements include illuminated stepping stones and Light Launchers where visitors can launch their own laser beams.
And those who have attended Christmas at Wollaton have shared their positive feedback on the experience.
One member of the public said: “It’s so lovely seeing our boys’ faces light up around the trail. We loved the interactive elements too.”
Families enjoyed exploring the trail as well as tucking into warming festive food and drinks including mulled wine and amaretto hot chocolate, as well as hot dogs.
This year’s concept has been conceived by the design team, light art pioneers Luminism, and Creative Director Katherine Jewkes, who has designed experiences for the likes of the BBC and dX, formerly Twitter.
