Illuminated Arboretum returns to the National Memorial Arboretum, in Staffordshire, offering families the opportunity to explore a meandering mile long route at night to marvel at a majestic winter light experience. Following a successful debut in 2018, this year’s incarnation features a new selection of artistic installations using light and sound to explore the art of conversation, bathing the woodlands, gardens and memorials in colour.

Visitors can send a message with Semaphore Man, be mesmerised by the ‘floating speech bubbles’ and navigate through a giant web of colourful threads before discovering Votive Woods and Beacons of Light. Illuminated Arboretum blends an exciting, multi-sensory, immersive experience with moving tributes of Remembrance.

The Illuminated Arboretum experience opens to the public 11 to 20 December. Tickets can be purchased online ( or by calling 01283 245 100.
