Town Gardens show a touch of seasonal magic this Christmas with the introduction of a brand-new illuminated display running throughout December – The Enchanted Gardens Light Trail.

From December 2 to New Year's Eve, a 1.5km outdoor lighting trail will transform the gardens into a spectacle of light, specially designed by Light Art Pioneers, Luminism and hosted by South Swindon Parish Council.

As part of the illuminations, selected local schools have been invited to be a part of the event by helping to create one of the light art sculptures to be located at The Bandstand ,called Reflections of Swindon.

The gardens will remain accessible to the public as normal during its winter opening hours before closing each evening at 4.30pm to allow the fundraising illuminated trail to open.

Organisers have partnered with local charity Brighter Futures, who help the people of Swindon by supporting the services within the Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

The NHS foundation Trust aim is to provide the best care possible. Brighter Futures help it to do this by funding the purchasing of equipment, supporting education of staff, and improving the environment for all staff and patients.

£1 from each ticket for the trail will go towards the charity
