Event Description

The Edwardian formal gardens at the National Trust's Polesden Lacey, just four miles from Dorking, form the perfect setting for this lantern-lit walk which takes you between flickering flames and majestic trees.

As twilight falls, the IGNITE magic begins. Expect the unexpected, with glimpses of fairies that could be dancing in lanterns, playful top hats and teapots. Within this fiery interpretation of flora and fantasy, set to an atmospheric soundscape, there are moments of discovery and reflection.

Visitors are met with hand-held lanterns so they can light their own way through tree-lined avenues on a quietly magical meander. Walk between flickering flames and see fire breathing dragons, a river of flames and fire balls.

Pause under the Instagram favourite Tunnel of Light, adorned with more than 100,000 pea-lights stretching almost 50 metres in length. Feel dwarfed by the majesty of nature as you pass giant Badgers, Robins and other woodland wildlife sculpted in willow.

There are new installations and music this year, ensuring that visitors can see the house and gardens illuminated as never before.
