Christmas at Dunham Massey at Dunham Massey
Altrincham,
Greater Manchester, Cheshire WA14 4SJ

Entry type: BALLOT Check venue website for T&C's Discount/Complimentary code

Surround yourself with sparkle this Christmas as the after-dark trail lights up for 2020. You'll find moments to share with friends and family with brand new bright lights for winter nights.

Enter beside giant glittering deer into a world festooned with seasonal cheer enhanced by a soundtrack of festive classics. Wander beneath stunning tree canopies drenched in Christmas colour. Immerse yourself within bouncing lines of light and discover giant luminescent sculptures rising high into the night sky.

Stroll beside colour-changing lakeside reflections and under trees dripping with silvery shards of light, baubles and stars. Huge snowflakes create an aerial kaleidoscope over the Gardens and the tunnel of light returns with twinkling splendour. This year, why not pause for a moment of quiet reflection at the crystal and fire garden, aglow with hundreds of flickering flames.

Have yourself a merry little Christmas and complete your walk under the stars with mulled wine or hot chocolate* and someone special. Don't forget to watch out for Father Christmas along the way.

There will be lighting sequences created within the lighting design that will have some flashing lights contained within them. However, these will not be strobe lighting. We have worked along guidelines on photosensitive epilepsy and will adhere to the industry standard of synchronising effects and locking the sequences to ensure that lights do not operate at more than 5 flashes per second.
