Stroll along the one kilometre light trail of 500,000 sparkling lights that envelope lake-side walkways.

Meander under fairylit trees and enjoy the trail of more than 40 different light animations and instalments made by local artists Anthony Smith, James Harris and Billy Glover.

Enjoy the spectacular Unison Christmas Tree made of ribbons of light that transform into playful images you would never dream of.

Singalong to the Twelve Days of Christmas, Muppet style.

There are two labyrinths to weave your way through and experience first hand the World War 2 searchlight as owners Wayne Clarke, Jason Scott and their team sweep the skies with its beam from horizon to horizon.

The lights are turned on after dark at 9.00pm and then the wonder begins for young and old alike. We're open every night, rain or shine including Christmas night and New Year's Eve.

Toilets available. Our friendly staff members along the walkways are there to provide any help.

Funded by Hastings District Council and Public Dreams Trust and run by 150 volunteers. Gate sales goes towards adding new light displays each year.

Happy holidays!
