We are hugely excited to be working with the National Trust at Mount Stewart again this year for the Festival of Lights. This visually stunning, magical event is back for a second year running after the overwhelming success of last year.

“It was one of the most memorable events of the year, if not the decade so far..” Belfast Telegraph Weekend Magazine.

The event will take place from Friday the 31st October until the 16th November where the gardens and lake will come alive to lights and original music. 

The night-time experience will allow visitors to walk the illuminated Lake trail and to view animated light and sound shows from set viewing platforms.

With hundreds of feature trees illuminated against the night sky, this really is a spectacle not to be missed!

Magical, mystical and quite Magnificent ‐ Festival of Light
Attended the Festival of Light and found the whole experience quite magical. To see the
wonderful grounds lit up with such atmospheric lighting effects together with the
accompanying musical arrangements was simply quite magnificent. Even my 12 year old
grandson said it was Really Awesome (high praise indeed). As you can progress through the
walk at your own pace, it was easy to stop and just absorb the whole atmosphere, at one
point at the top of the lake I stayed for nearly 15 mins listening to the music which
reminded me of monks chanting and watching the changing colours and shapes of the trees.
It was quite emotional and very moving.
I can also recommend the Mulled cider on sale, delicious. Hope this is put on every year, will
definitely be going again." Reviewed 26 November 2013
