A stunning spectacle of Oriental themed light, sound and colour will mark the coming of the Chinese New Year at Robin Hill during next February’s school half term holiday.
Between Sunday 16th February and Sunday 23rd February visitors to Robin Hill’s electric woods can experience the park’s magical illuminated woodland with a far eastern twist to capture the spirit of one of the world’s most popular celebrations. This is the first of a series of openings in 2014 for the park's popular 'electric woods' events which last year received rave reviews from visitors of all ages.
The park’s ancient woodland will be open every evening from 5pm until 9pm so that the beautiful oriental theme can really take effect as dusk begins to fall. A dazzling array of coloured lanterns, flags and features will bring a magical glow to the paths and glades for visitors to enjoy on a winter's evening, usually starved of such warmth and cheer. The stunning “Golden Oriole” bridge with its cascading golden water will be a central feature for the event as well the park’s marble temple that was brought all the way from north eastern China.
Chinese themed entertainment and dancing will be a feature on woodland bowl stage each evening, including authentic performances of a traditional lion dance. Children can really get involved in the celebration by taking part in a real dragon procession that parades around the woods with a 12m dragon costume.
An authentic oriental menu will feature at the woodlands ponds where floating lanterns will bring magical reflections to the water and themed music will add to the ambience. There will be the chance to sample some fortune cookies and authentic Chinese tea as well as win a great prize in the Chinese red envelope lucky dip.
The special February half term evening-only tickets include unlimited 10 day worth of returns, so people can come back again and again if they want to. Prices for adult and children are only £7.50, making this a very affordable and interesting evening out for the whole family. Full details of specific times, events and other entry prices will be available from the parks website www.robin-hill.com from early December.
Tickets are available in advance from the website or by calling the park on 01983 556052.
