Lightopia at Heaton Park, Manchester, 24 November 2022–2 January 2023, from £13.00 - Book now

Lightopia, the award-winning and visually dramatic lantern and light festival, will be lighting up Heaton Park, Manchester this winter, in a fusion of beautiful, light art installations, music, and human interaction to warm up the entire family, taking place from 24 November 2022 to 2 January 2023.

You’ll be truly illuminated by the unique and interactive light exhibits, as you discover a new fantasy themed magical light trail through the parklands. Along the way, you will see magical, visually striking installations taking a variety of shapes and sizes, expect fairytales, local heroes, animals, glittering, immersive lanterns, vibrant colourful lasers, illuminated trees, an astronomy-themed display and water shows at the lakeside.

This will be a sensory heaven like no other, with not only lights and visuals to astound you, but stunning sounds and melodies as you walk through Musical City, featuring huge musical instruments played by hopping along the keys beneath your feet.

And to get even more into the Christmas spirit, get ready for the Lightopia Christmas showcase. More information on the Christmas production will be released soon.
