Winter Lights at Whitchurch Silk Mill
After the success of our Winter Lights show in 2020, we are excited to be bringing it back and lighting up with Mill in new and exciting ways!
Open daily 28 January to 6 February 2022: 4pm to 9pm
The Team from Zeal Live have created a magical illuminated walk weaving through the Mill and gardens, as light displays transport you through time to the earliest days of the Mill. Inside the Mill, the historic machinery will be lit with displays of light representing patterns and swirling fabrics as our weavers weave silk on historic looms. Outside on Frog Island, where two parts of the River Test flow into one, light and classical music will wash over the Mill, the gardens and the tree-lined river banks, and the river will reflect the light.
If this wasn’t enough, we will have a number of special events happening throughout the 10-day experience which will include:
> Our launch event with Glow performer Nick Cook, who along with his robot stilt walker, will provide a spectacular show full of circus tricks sure to provide the wow-factor
> A special celebration of Chinese New Year on 1st February with a performance from the Lion Dance UK team in the Mill grounds
> Sensory light activities and a quiet night for those that prefer a more relaxed atmosphere
We will keep updating this events page and social media, so keep watch for more details soon!
