Explore Spectacle of Light at Sudeley Castle

Posted: Tue, 7th Nov 2023

Now in its eighth year, the Sudeley Castle Spectacle of Light is back from 24 November to 30 December 2023. Explore the new, beautifully illuminated night-time trail around the castle’s exquisite grounds in Winchcombe. As you follow the festive trail, delight in the stunningly lit majestic trees and romantic ruins while listening to music.

New for 2023

This year’s theme is the Wonderful Wizard of Oz – follow Dorothy, the Lion, Scarecrow and Tinman as they try to find the Emerald City without encountering the Wicked Witch! Be dazzled by the sparkling water features, Garden of Fire, glimmering flowers in the Queens’ Garden, light beams and lanterns.
