The beautiful light display at country house families can flock to at half-term

Enjoy dazzling light displays and immersive experiences at Compton Verney’s Spectacle of Light this half-term

Half-term is soon approaching, with many parents trying to find family-friendly activities to keep their children entertained. However, at Warwickshire manor house Compton Verney, families can enjoy a ‘spectacle of light’ during the night with colourful light displays to explore around the grounds.

The nights might still be long, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be fun. The historic house and grounds have been transformed by jaw-dropping light displays and installations, bathing the lake, ancient meadow and stunning woodland in an array of colours and sounds, which will run until Sunday, February 18.

There’s also a brand new feature from Squidsoup, who are the pioneers of using light, sound and technology to create unique, interactive and immersive experiences, so the trail is filled with wonderful things to see and hear for families.

If that wasn’t enough, after all the exploring, there will be some of the region’s finest street food vendors from Digbeth Dining Club, South Birmingham Curry Club, Chatty Patty, Disco Fries, Spice Club, Tapas Zampa and many more to indulge in.

The light spectacular will have allocated time slots, with the house and grounds closed from 5pm, with each evening’s show beginning at 5:30pm. Each slot will run every 15 minutes until the last one at 7:15pm.

CEO of Compton Verney, Geraldine Collinge said: “Spectacle of Light is a wonderful event and we’re excited to bring it to you in January and February at the start of our 20th birthday year at Compton Verney. I’d encourage everyone to come along and immerse themselves in the event; whether you choose to visit us to celebrate Valentine’s Day, make the most of half-term or any other time and help us celebrate this landmark year with a really exciting programme of events and exhibitions.”

Family tickets are based on two adults and two children, with each adult ticket starting from £17.60 which can be purchased via the Compton Verney website. Pre-booking for the Spectacle of Light is essential, with no tickets available at the gate.
