Last weekend marked the start of the countdown to Christmas in the Purple household. The opening of the first door on the advent calendar, and the excitement began. We also went to visit Westonbirt Arboretum’s Enchanted Christmas, the perfect start to the festive season.
The walk through the lit up arboretum after dark is absolutely magical. There are beautifully lit up trees, lichen glistening in the lights like frost. We found lots of interactive displays, one where drums illuminate the night. A sound activated display which only lights up in full at the right volume. Super Kid gave a rousing rendition of ‘We Wish You A Merry Christmas’ and was rewarded by the full display as well as a round of applause.
We saw our faces lit up on shrubbery, can you tell which is who?
We found a tree that made the biggest lava lamp I’ve ever seen.
At the end of the trail we were extremely excited to find Father Christmas, all dressed in green as traditional as can be. I would wholeheartedly recommend you visit Westonbirt Arboretum’s Enchanted Christmas, it really is something very special. Go here for more details.
*Disclosure: we were given tickets to The Enchanted Christmas for the purposes of this review.
