A spectacular event will celebrate the House of Light season. Inspired by stories of Isaac Newton, we will start with a lantern-lit procession, with stargazing - hopefully the skies will be clear enough for us to see the Geminid meteor shower - followed by a chance to explore the Manor House and the House of Light installations by torchlight. There will also be a crowd activity using torches - please bring yours - to 'paint' with light around the site.
