In December, Illuminated Arboretum will return to the National Memorial Arboretum, in Staffordshire, inviting families to experience a kaleidoscope of colour in the run-up to Christmas, along a new and improved route. As they venture along a winding trail around the western portion of the 150-acre woodland and garden site, visitors will encounter majestic displays that use light and sound to create a festive atmosphere, while bathing some sculpted memorials in colour.

The National Memorial Arboretum has been granted Good to Go status by VisitEngland, signifying compliance with government and industry best practice, and all events are delivered in a Covid-secure manner. The Illuminated Arboretum experience will be available from 9 to 19 December and tickets can be purchased online Click Here with discounted early bird prices available until 31 October.
