Chiswick House & Gardens Trust has announced the perfect winter experience: After Dark at Chiswick House Gardens. Launching on Thursday 15th November until 30th December, and running from Thursday to Sunday, this will be a festive extravaganza like no other.
The perfect, pre-Christmas, adventure refuses to conform to the norm, as there’ll be no reindeers, fake snow or Santa Clauses in sight. Instead, vibrant state-of-the-art light displays from world-renowned artists offer a sleek, modern and classy experience providing stunning and unique picture content for snap-happy social media fans. All set in a breathtaking historical setting and with delicious food and drink aplenty, After Dark is perfect for the family, friends, office parties or partners looking to dial up their date night.
Visitors will be guided through a 45-minute trail set in the award-winning, opulent gardens of the 18th-century Chiswick House and Gardens. The historical villa will form the canvas for an illuminating lighting display where classical architecture meets modern technology, care of renowned lighting designer, Nick Gray from Renegade. Gray’s high-profile projects have included stage lighting for Kasabian, Last Shadow Puppets and Calvin Harris, and lighting design for many fashion shows including London Fashion Week, Anya Hindmarch, Mulberry, Julien Macdonald, Roksanda, Matthew Williamson and Temperley to name a few. Several art installations by up-and-coming artist Finn Thomson will also feature.
Upon completion of the trail, visitors can tuck into a seasonal feast where their culinary senses will be heightened as some of London’s best street food traders such as The Cheese Truck, Le Swine, Taco Dave, The Duck Shed and Love Churros will serve up mouth-watering dishes.
They’ll be an abundance of winter toddy favourites such as Terry’s Hot Chocolate Orange, Bailey’s Hot Chocolate and Hot Apple Cider to help keep you warm from point of entry.
