Cambridge University Botanic Garden to host its first ever Winter Lights Trail





Cambridge University Botanic Garden (CUBG) is to host its first ever Winter Lights Trail later this year.

Bringing the garden to life after dark, impressive light displays will highlight some of the site’s most beloved features – such as the fountain, lake and glasshouse range.

CUBG director, Professor Beverley Glover, said: “We’re really excited to be bringing such a large-scale, beautiful display to the garden and the centre of Cambridge this winter.

“We’ve wanted to hold an event like this for a number of years, but it was put on the backburner with the Covid lockdowns.

“We hope that this exciting new experience will be a wonderful way for all the family to explore the garden after dark, provide a fun night out with friends, or a beautiful new romantic experience in the city centre.”

The Garden Café will be open, and hot drinks and snacks will also be available halfway around the trail. The trail will be open for 13 nights in December, opening on Friday, December 1.

Tickets will be available for timed entry, starting at 5pm, with the final entry of the day at 8.20pm and the garden closing at 9.30pm.

Tickets will be on sale, via Cambridge Live Tickets (cambridgelive.org.uk/tickets), from 10am today (Wednesday, September 6).
