    It will take place in Boughton’s beautiful landscaped gardens against the backdrop of the historic house.

    Running from October 13 to November 6, the event will take place on evenings from Thursday through to Sunday.

    The historic gardens at Boughton were designed to impress the eye in the 17th Century.

    Recently restored over a period of 15 years, they will now be the focus of Spectacle’s illuminated trail through the walled garden, around breathtaking water features and along tree-lined avenues, all in front of the house that is regarded locally as ‘The English Versailles’.

    Visitors will experience light-art installations set in the geometric landscape which include Mount, Orpheus, Curve, Crocus and Kaleidoscope.

    Organisers say it is a truly immersive experience for the whole family.

    As well as the illuminated trail, visitors to the event will be able to tuck into street food at the foot of the walled garden, as well as mulled wine and hot chocolate on offer to warm you on your way round.

    Charles Lister, property manager at Boughton House, said: “We are really excited to welcome visitors of all ages to Boughton House in 2022 for this new Spectacle of Light.
