Festival of Light 2022

21 October 2022
From 18:00 to 21:30

Following the huge success of our first Festival of light event in 2019 we are delighted to announce the details for this year.

As it gets dark we’ll be lighting up the Pigeon Tower and Italian lake area as well as installing a range of temporary surprises to create a magical spectacle.

We’ll have live music, lights and lasers, as well as a fully licensed bar provided for us by the fantastic Northern Monkey Brewery and a delicious range of hot food, desserts and treats.

Brand New for 2022 will be the Lake-Shot stage featuring live performances of high octane hits set to lights.

This is a great family activity, and there will be no fireworks – no nasty bangs and whizzes!

The Event will run from 6.00pm – 9.30pm

This event is strictly ticket only, it will be dark and we need to control numbers for safety.

Please note this event takes place around the Italian lake, many of the paths include steps and uneven surfaces. If you are concerned about accessibility please email rtg@groundwork.org.uk to arrange to speak to a member of the Rivington Team for advice BEFORE booking your tickets.

The weather in October can be challenging so dress appropriately and bring a torch for the journey home.

On this occasion, for safety, this event is limited to assistance dogs only.

Your booking confirmation is your ticket. We will not send out separate tickets, instead your name will be checked against our attendee list when you arrive.
Adults £14 –  Children 6-16 yrs £7  – 5 yrs and under go FREE (and do not need a ticket/do not need to register)
