The sell-out success of Rivington Terraced Garden’s Festival of Light extravaganza on 29th & 30th October, has led organisers to add another night to the event.


During half-term week, visitors can now book tickets for Thursday 28th October, with adult tickets priced at £14, £7 for children aged 6-16, and under-fives go free.


The magical spectacle, which sees the Pigeon Tower and Italian Lake area illuminated, with surprise installations throughout The Gardens adding to the evening’s excitement for all ages. Not only that but the summer house and loggia's as well as the Lake’s waterfall, Neptune’s Pond and the various footpaths and woodlands surrounding it will all come alive with dancing lights for a WOW factor experience.

With doors opening from 5.30pm; live music, lights and lasers will entertain crowds from 6.00pm – 9.30pm and help raise much needed funds for the charity. A fully licensed bar provided by Northern Monkey Brewery and a range of hot food, desserts and treats make this a fantastic event for all the family.


Andrew Suter, Heritage Projects Manager at Rivington Terraced Gardens, says: “Just like 2019 when we last held the event, tickets have been snapped up at record pace and we’re delighted to be able to offer an additional night. Entry is strictly by ticket only and numbers are limited for safety reasons, so we would advise early booking to ensure attendance.


“Our fundraising efforts took a huge hit during lockdown, so this success is a much-needed boost for The Gardens and our fantastic volunteers who make it possible to run our busy events calendar. Visitors should come dressed for October’s unpredictable weather and wear appropriate footwear as the ground can be uneven. A torch for the walk back to the car park is also advised!”


The ticketed entrance will be over Levers Bridge. Car Parking will be in Lower Rivington with the route up from South Lodge illuminated.


Tickets are available online from www.rivingtonterracedgardens.org.uk
