Kentish Express Ashford & District - What's On - - FESTIVE - Re­view by Angela Cole

The fes­tive sea­son maybe awash with twin­kling lights, but deep in the dark­est woods in Kent’s Weald isan il­lu­mi­nated win­ter won­der land that presents the mina new, dif­fer­ent and breath-tak­ing way.

This is the first year bed ge bury Pine tum at goud hurst has pre­sented Christ­mas at B edge bury, a for­est of fes­tive lights amid the Forestry Com­mis­sion’s wood­land. The il­lu­mi­nated won­der­land, which runs un­til Sun­day, De­cem­ber30, trans­forms the pine tum into a light show com­plete with mu­si­calY around, in­clud­ing Christ­mas car­ols. The trail starts with colour­ful wa­ter foun­tains danc­ing in time to the­mu­sic -but they are only atiny glimpse of what treats there are to come.

There are il­lu­mi­nated walk­ways, singing lamp posts, gi­ant Christ­mas trees and op­por­tu­ni­ties for self­ies at ev­ery turn, even with hu­mon­gous mistle­toe.

At each turn, there is another breath tak­ing light show. The Tun­nel of Light with its mil­lion pea-lights along a 70m walk way does take your breath away, while a lake view of rings of fire in the Fire-gar­den had vis­i­tors mes­merised at the wa­ter’ s edge. The Pitaya Wisps high upin the trees need to be seen to be be­lieved, and are unique to bed ge bury. The mile-long route can take as short or long at i meas you would like and there is so much to see you won’t find your­selves crowd­ing be­hind oth­ers.
