Bedgebury Pinetum's popular Christmas lights event is back for a second year and has some new features.
The illuminated trail at the Forestry Commission site in Goudhurst wowed visitors last year with its mile-long lights trail.
This year the trail, which runs from Friday, November 22 to Monday, December 30, this year has a Vortex Tunnel illuminated by tens of thousands of LED light globes; a flotilla of illuminated origami boats dancing on the shimmering lake and a water fountain finale jumping jets of light dancing in time to much-loved Christmas classics.
The ticket-only event also has some firm favourites back from last year, including the Tunnel of Light which was made up of thousands of twinkling pea-sized lights.
The event has festive-themed attractions for visitors including spiced cider, mulled wine and hot chocolate, the chance to toast marshmallows on a fire and some traditional Victorian fairground rides for children, which are charged separately.
There may even be a chance to see Father Christmas and his elves.
It will welcome visitors at weekends and select weekday evenings.
Visitors must book in advance and select a timeslot. These begin shortly after 4pm each afternoon and are available until around 7.40pm.
Advanced tickets are £18 for adults or £54 for a family ticket and each booking is subject to a single transaction charge. When booking tickets to Christmas at Bedgebury visitors also must remember to pre-book parking for the day of their visit.
