Following its European debut in Manchester last year, the award-winning and visually spectacular lantern and light festival Lightopia is returning to Heaton Park from the 20th November 2020 until 3rd January 2021.
Ten lucky winners have the chance to win a family ticket to Lightopia this winter.
Explore interactive exhibits and immersive light installations through the magical illuminated trail. This year’s event will also feature new creations to discover, including a stand-out Christmas showcase, Astronomy display, and the immersive Musical City! With all the favourites from last year including the antler-framed arch of the Love Gate, the sparkling branches of the Tree of Life and the state-of-the-art Lakeside water show.
A new route has also been designed to create a safe environment, where Lightopians are able to see the sights safely with friends and family; there will be wider footpaths to maintain social distancing, three entry points to reduce queuing and direct access to two car parks. Shimmering walkways will mark the route direction, and extraordinary dragon sculptures will lead the way to Lightopia’s food stalls and licensed bars.
