A new route and light installations await festive visitors to Christmas at Delamere Forest, this winter, with an impressive array of artistic lights confirmed.

The popular Christmas light trail, which runs from November 25 to December 31, boasts a fantastic collection of installations from artists in the UK and across Europe.

Matthew Findlay, Head of UK Trails for Sony Music/Raymond Gubbay Ltd, said: "We are hugely excited by the plans for this year’s trail, with artists creating beautiful, new installations which will provide even more ‘wow’ factor for 2022.”

Amongst the new installations is Submergence, by UK-based collective Squidsoup, where visitors walk among strings of dangling lights in the undergrowth of the forest.

Firework Trees by ITHACA Studio, shoot up the trunks of trees and through the branches, set to the soundtrack of exploding and swooshing fireworks.

The family-friendly trail also features the gorgeous Christmas Cathedral, enabling visitors to walk through a tunnel of more than 10,000 pea lights.

Independent street food vendors bring a delicious twist with tasty treats on offer. Complete your walk under the stars with a *spiced winter warmer or *hot chocolate shared with friends and family. Everyone loves toasting a marshmallow over an open fire and the artisan *marshmallow stall gives visitors the chance to warm their hands and enjoy this sweet outdoor tradition.

There are also traditional fairground rides to enjoy and don’t forget to glimpse Father Christmas along the way. The illuminated trail at Delamere Forest provides a special way to celebrate the festive season with an unmissable outdoor experience. It is designed for visitors of all ages and is accessible to all to enjoy.
