THORNTON Manor's private park and gardens will be transformed into a drive-through enchanted forest, lake and lights experience for families to enjoy this Winter.

Opening from Friday December 4 until January 31, Winter WonderLight will feature nine themed zones promising "jaw-dropping" laser and light illuminations to the sound of some of the greatest film and orchestra soundtracks.

From the safety of your own car, families and bubbles of up to six follow a trail through the grounds of the Elizabethan house, travelling from zone to zone of spectacular illuminated displays including: A spellbinding Northern Lights show by the lake, to the wonders of an LED-lit meadow, and concluding the tour through a snow-covered winter wonderland with giant floating snowflakes.

Completely contactless and Covid-safe, each car takes a dashboard audio box to provide an enhanced in-car sound experience as they travel between each display.

Emma Rainford, deputy general manager of Thornton Manor's Winter WonderLight said: "Winter WonderLight is all about bringing magic, wonder and excitement for families and loved ones this Winter. We all need something to look forward to and keep spirits high.

"The stunning location in the grounds of Thornton Manor and the intimate setting inside your car gives that personal and luxurious ‘theatre box’ seat experience, and the log fire display on the audio box will make you feel warm and cosy!

"We cannot wait to welcome everyone to enjoy this marvellous fusion of festive and theatrical light experiences.”

Tickets are on sale through the Winter WonderLight Eventbrite page

Priced at £39.50 per car (holding up to xix people), the event lasts approximately 40 minutes.
