A new, state-of-the-art, immersive light and sound experience set to enchant visitors in St Albans in the run-up to Christmas this year.
LUMAGICA St Albans is a 1.2km circular light trail based at Willows Activity Farm, London Colney. It features oversized light sculptures of mythical and wild animals, animated light tunnels, a unique light and water show, and a soundtrack specially composed for the experience.
Launching in the October half term, the self-guided trail has been brought to Willows by Lyssa Elster, chief executive at Willows Activity Farm. She says: “I’ve always enjoyed visiting winter light trails; they create images and memories that last a lifetime. I thought having our own light trail would be an excellent addition to Willows and would open up the farm to a whole new community of guests.
“We have always been committed to – and continue to offer – amazing days out at Willows, but the LUMAGICA St Albans experience is a brand-new offer to a much wider audience. There is no age limit to the magic of LUMAGICA St Albans!”
The trail is wheelchair accessible and designed for all. Each installation is hidden from the next creating a journey of discovery for every guest. As they pass underneath the stunning entrance arch, they come face to face with a giant mythical winter unicorn before entering a shimmering field of enchanted mushrooms. Continuing on their journey, they’ll be able to interact with a family of oversized giraffes and pose for photos in front of the spectacular animated hummingbird and the five-metre tall sparkling Tree of Life.
The colour-responsive ‘Field of Dreams’ allows visitors to create their own musical composition before they head into a series of four distinct themed light tunnels, each with bespoke original music, enveloping them in an array of fabulous animated light effects. The trail reaches its crescendo with an impressive light and water projection show featuring an all-star cast of natural and supernatural creatures.
Once they’ve completed the trail, guests can head back to the refreshments arena, where hot food and drinks will be available.
LUMAGICA St Albans opens on Saturday, October 22 and tickets are on sale now. For more details head to www.lumagicauk.com/stalbans email email@example.com, or like and follow @lumagicauk on Facebook and Instagram for all the latest news and updates.
