Experience the Abbey Gardens as they’ve never been seen before…
Illumin Abbey promises to be a wonderful spectacular of lighting, music and live entertainment, suitable for all ages.
Starting at the Eastgate Nursery entrance, a 1km route within Abbey Gardens will be illuminated to celebrate the architectural magnificence, history and beauty of the gardens and ruins.
Along the way, there will be plenty to see and do, including breathtaking street theatre performances from Corvus Angelicus, Juggling Inferno and Spark!, the amazing high impact drumming troupe with kaleidoscopic lighting.
The route is approximately 1km long with mainly hard paths and undulating terrain.
