Visitors can get more than 25% off tickets to Sudeley Castle's illuminated display of light and colour by booking before the end of September
It may be early to start thinking about Christmas but we were so excited to hear Sudeley Castle's Spectacle of Light will return for its fourth year this winter.
A much-loved festive event in the region's calendar, which takes place on selected dates from November 30 until December 30, will see the historic castle and gardens transformed by an illuminated display of light and colour as darkness falls on the Cotswold Hills.
Visitors will be able to follow a breath-taking trail around Sudeley Castle's stunning grounds, marvelling at the romantic ruins and majestic gardens, all lit under the stars. Visitors will also be able to enjoy music, art installations and meet costumed characters along the route which will transport them to a magical winter wonderland.
Peter Pan, Wendy, Tinker Bell and the villainous Captain Hook will all feature in the spectacle, from J M Barrie's timeless classic, Peter Pan. Visitors will also be able to make a wish and support the children of Great Ormond Street Hospital.
A host of other dramatic lighting installations promise to make this year's event the best yet - including the First Light, the Garden of Blooms, Giant Flowers, Moroccan Lanterns and much more.
Tickets are on sale now, with 'early bird' discounts of more than 25 per cent off until September 30, available here or by phone on 01242 705 555, or in person at the Everyman Theatre in Cheltenham.
Last year's Spectacle of Light event was the most popular to date, with tickets selling out for almost all evenings.
Sudeley Castle chief executive, Wendy Walton, said: "The amazing Spectacle of Light event is one of the highlights of the region's winter calendar, and plans are already well underway to ensure this year's event is the best yet.
"It offers a truly magical evening out, taking visitors on a journey of wonder and discovery around the castle's stunning grounds. It promises to be an awe-inspiring and truly memorable evening out for all the family and we are already looking forward to being able to share it with our visitors this winter."
A selection of festive food and drink will also be on offer at the event, which runs on selected dates between November 30 and December 30, 2019.
Tickets are by timed entry, with the walk around the route taking approximately one hour, although visitors are welcome to stay longer if they wish.
Early bird ticket prices are £14.50 for an adult and £8.70 for a child. Disability carers and children under three-years-old go free. Family tickets (for two adults and two children) cost £40.60.
