Organisers have revealed more details of Hatfield Park's forthcoming Christmas trail.

The after-dark illuminated Christmas light trail at Hatfield Park will open for a six-week run in just one week's time. 

The spectacular collection of illuminations will transform the 42 acres of gardens and parkland where Queen Elizabeth I spent much of her childhood.

The sparkling lights are choreographed to a soundtrack of much-loved seasonal music, transforming Hatfield’s majestic park into an instant winter wonderland.

Opening on Friday, November 25 and running until New Year's Eve on Saturday, December 31, the trail is expertly created by Culture Creative, the producers of Christmas at Kew.
