Details

Join the National Memorial Arboretum for ten selected December dates to experience Illuminated Arboretum.

Journey down their torch-lit avenue, experiment with the shadow wall and have a go at creating Morse Code with colourful LEDS, before embarking on a journey through Votive Woods where you can make your own contribution to the display. The beautiful lighting washing the memorials with colour and creating artistic vistas across the gardens will finish with a stunning tribute across the Armed Forces Memorial, Beacons of Light.

A winter’s evening not to be missed!
