In place of the popular Chiswick House After Dark, Lightopia takes centre stage. This year sees an expanded run compared to the truncated 2020 event. Be sure to check our other top winter illuminations too!
What to expect at Lightopia at Chiswick House
Chiswick House is known for radically changing its offering each season, and this year is no different. In fact, this year’s Lightopia is perhaps the most ambitious yet, and aims to create “A world of expression and raw emotion”. The highlights will include a lantern trail, live music and acrobatics performances. Perhaps most impressive is the colourful 3D projection mapping, projected directly onto Chiswick House.
Tickets for Chiswick House Lightopia
Tickets are sold on the door (if available), but it’s well worth booking online before you go, as they often sell out. You’ll also save yourself £2.00 by getting your ticket in advance. Just be sure to check the weather before you do. While the show goes on in all weathers, it’s all outdoors—so heavy rain could make for a less than stellar experience. Adult tickets cost a hefty £22.50, while kids cost £15.50. If you’re coming as a family, you can save a little with a £70.00 family ticket. If going by car, don’t forget to book a parking spot when you book your ticket.
Food and Drink at Lightopia
Expect a wide range of food and drinks from multiple vendors. The full line-up hasn’t been announced, but in previous years we’ve seen offerings from around the world, served by the usual upmarket food trucks.
