Ignite: fire and fantasy at Polesden Lacey

Returning with a new, after-dark trail for autumn 2022, IGNITE is back at Polesden Lacey. From Thu 20 Oct – Sun 6 Nov, visitors will be able to enjoy a walk through the gardens at night guided by flickering flames and glowing tunnels of trees with magical illuminated installations along the way.

Once the home of famous Edwardian socialite, Margaret Greville, Polesden Lacey was the perfect location for entertaining royalty and celebrities of the time. Nestled in the Surrey Hills, the Edwardian gardens of the estate are the perfect setting this exceptional after-dark experience.

As twilight falls, the magic begins 

The trail takes you between flickering flames and beside majestic trees into one amazing space and then another.

Within this fiery interpretation of stars and spheres, illuminated flora and fantasy, there are moments of reflection and playful discovery set to a soundscape that will inspire and intrigue.

The hour-long discovery trail has been specially designed for visitors of all ages to enjoy. The great outdoors made magical.

IGNITE is bought to Polesden Lacey by Sony Music in partnership with the National Trust
