Illuminating historic venues for winter walks

English Heritage Outdoor Lighting Event Eltham Buidling Bridge Trees

The beauty of Audley End House and Eltham Palace cannot be overlooked. This was especially true during our collaboration with English Heritage, who entrusted us with the task of illuminating the grounds to inspire and delight the public during 14 nights of beautiful winter evening walks.

The Brief

We worked with English Heritage to provide varied lighting solutions for a fortnight of winter walks held at two historic venues. We needed to enhance and transform the already picturesque grounds into a tasteful, festive journey of lights so that people of all ages could enjoy the grounds in a way they would have never seen them before.

Our Approach

We knew our work with English Heritage would have to showcase both the beauty of the grounds and buildings and transform the locations into new and awe-inspiring environments. We laced thousands of fairy lights through the trees and crafted into archways to evoke a dreamy, otherworldly atmosphere; paths were lined with flickering candles to guide the public through their walk. By lighting the trees and gardens in a wash of blues, purples, and pinks, the magic of the festive season and the majesty of the locations were brought together in beautiful harmony.

The Results

25,000 visitors came to each venue in total, taking in the architecture and imaginative illuminations that brought history to life. We are set to work with English Heritage for a 3-year deal, continuing to provide beautiful lighting for their popular winter walks events, and we are very excited to transform these iconic locations in new ways every single year.
