Illuminating festive light trail opens at Belton House

Thousands of lights are illuminating the night sky at Belton House, Grantham.

The new festive light trail opened last week showcasing world-renowned light installations including a towering Cathedral of Light featuring thousands of pea-lights, a Laser Garden of zapping lights and incredible Singing Trees playfully lighting up in time to a musical score.

“It is wonderful to see our gardens at Belton utterly transformed into a magical illuminated wonderland. Each time darkness falls we all feel excited to see installations lit up and to see the property in a whole new light,” said Siobhán Scullion, Belton House Visitor Experience Manager.

Among the internationally acclaimed artists are TILT, a French artistic studio, who play with scale and light with Carbonium and Red Herbum as well as North East based pa-BOOM who have created a 700 square metre Fire Garden to warm and wow visitors.

Culture Creative’s Zoe Bottrell said: “Transforming the landscape at Belton took almost three weeks of round-the-clock work by our amazing team. We worked with award-winning sculpture artists from all over the world installing incredible immersive sets and scenes.

“We have taken inspiration from the creative women of Belton House, as well as the historic landscape creating a trail which showcases the formal gardens and parkland,” she added.

The event will run until 30 December 2019

Christmas at Belton is produced by leading events promoter Raymond Gubbay Limited, a division of Sony Music, in partnership with the National Trust (Registered Charity 205846).  The trail is created by Culture Creative Limited.
