Reading’s Twilight Trail: Let the magic begin.


In a year that has been quite out-of-the-ordinary, Reading is set to see something pretty extra-ordinary this Christmas season. For the first time ever, Reading will have its very own Twilight Trail, a magical festive trail full of sparkles and illuminations, leading you through Reading’s iconic Forbury Gardens and Abbey Ruins.

Wander through a magical backdrop of illuminated trees, create your own light shows with interactive displays and watch the Abbey Ruins come alive with sound and light. Discover dazzling light orbs, floating mirror balls and enchanting shows of kaleidoscope patterns and colours as you experience Reading’s first Twilight Trail this Christmas.

As part of the trail, RABBLE are creating and performing a special piece based on our internationally acclaimed Henry I trilogy.

The brand-new light trail, brought to you by Reading UK, Reading BID and Reading Borough Council, will launch in Forbury Gardens on Monday 8th December and will run throughout the festive season.

To keep everyone as safe as possible and comply with current Government Coronavirus Guidelines around social distancing, there will be a limited number of tickets available for the Twilight Trail, with allocated timeslots every 20 minutes.

All tickets must be pre-booked in advance via Reading Arts. Please be aware that we don’t authorise or have any control over the sale of tickets via third-party websites.

So, book your ticket now and let the magic begin.
