This winter will see a beautiful Suffolk country estate brought to life with illuminations and music as its popular night-time event returns.

Haughley Park, near Stowmarket, has announced that the Spectacle of Light will be back in February 2021 for its second year, featuring a brand new trail and new light installations for the whole family to enjoy.

Haughley Park’s owner, Robert Williams, said: “We were really pleased the success our first Spectacle of Light last February and are delighted to be bringing it back in 2021. It’s perfect for brightening the long winter evenings and offers something special outdoors that people can enjoy safely during this difficult time.”

The after-dark experience invites people to explore the estate’s usually-private gardens, as they follow an illuminated trail through the grounds, accompanied by a gentle musical score to delight all ages.

A warming range of food and drink is also available along the way and the ‘Wishing Tree’ will be back to raise money for local charities.

Mr Williams continued: “We hope this event will bring a little light into the darkness, in more ways than one.”

The event runs each Friday, Saturday and Sunday in February, with entry times between 5.30pm and 7.00pm. The estimated walk time is 60-75 minutes and the trail is wheelchair accessible.

Early Bird tickets, which save 25%, are available until 31st December, priced at £13.50 adults and £6.75 children (under 3s free). Family tickets (2 adults, 2 children) are £34.50.

Those booking will be offered a free transfer to 2022 or a refund should the event be unable to go ahead due to further Covid-19 restrictions.
