Cancellation of Christmas at Bedgebury, 26 December 2020 - 17 January 2021

We are extremely disappointed to say that we are closing Christmas at Bedgebury from 26th December onward for the remainder of the season.

This decision has been made in light of the further announcement by the government on 23rd December and following our close and continued consultation with the local authorities.

This year has seen many challenges and we're pleased that whilst guidance allowed we were able to offer some the opportunity to enjoy the trail safely. However, we've made the difficult decision to cancel all remaining dates and we are sorry to not be able to provide you with your Christmas outing this year.

Ticket holders have been contacted directly about their options. We are unable to answer individual queries at this time, thank you for your understanding and patience.

We're truly sorry to those who were not able to experience the magic of this year's trail. We wish you a happy Christmas and peaceful New Year.

After careful consideration Christmas at Bedgebury will reopen from tonight, Wednesday 23 December 2020.

All future trail dates will go ahead as planned. Unfortunately we have had to close the café, food chalets and bar to maintain safety and in line with the new government guidance.

The magical, after-dark, illuminated trail

Surround yourself with sparkle this Christmas as the after dark trail at Bedgebury lights up for it's third year in 2020. You'll find new moments to share with friends and family and brand new magical lights for winter nights.

Enter a world festooned with seasonal cheer enhanced by a soundtrack of festive classics. Wander beneath unique tree canopies drenched in Christmas colour. Immerse yourself within woodland neon strings as bouncing lines glow in the moonlight. Discover singing trees rising high into the night sky and a forest saturated in ever-changing beams of colour. Stroll beside colour-changing water-side reflections and under trees dripping with silvery shards of light, snowflakes and stars.

Explore the light maze and look out for giant baubles and snowflakes where you least expect them. The tunnel of light returns with twinkling splendour and this year, why not pause for a moment of quiet reflection at the fire garden, aglow with hundreds of flickering flames.

Have yourself a merry Christmas and complete your walk under the stars with mulled wine or hot chocolate*. Don't forget to watch out for Father Christmas along the way.
