Festival of Light at Longleat


Europe’s largest display of giant Chinese illuminations is at Longleat this winter.

A total of around 7,000 individual lanterns, 15km of silk and a dazzling 40km of LED lights are being used in a series of stunning tableaux for the Festival of Light.

The highlights of the spectacular event include a 70m long dragon made up of 23,000 lit porcelain cups, bowls and plates and mythical creatures called ‘qilin’, which are each made from over 65,000 glass phials filled with coloured liquid.
