Lightopia Heaton Park

Overview

Lightopia is a festival of hand-sculpted lanterns, cherry-picked from across the globe. These unique pieces are carefully curated into a spellbinding trail that leads through the beautiful Heaton Park. Revellers will journey through different themed areas along a route which also includes food stalls and licenced bars that offer refreshments along the way. The Lakeside water show plays a key role in the experience, as state-of-the-art projections create a visual masterpiece, bringing the story of Lightopia to life; with a new production created for 2020 that reflects the Lightopia theme of discovery. New this year is the stand-out Christmas showcase, which uses the Grade I-listed Heaton Hall as its sparkling backdrop – enjoy the most wonderful time of the year at Lightopia, as you pass by Santa’s sleigh, glistening snowflakes and make your own festive soundtrack with a giant interactive walking piano.
