The Festival of Light and Learning at Longleat

Written by: Elmtree Press

This year, Longleat’s dazzling Festival of Lights celebration is back! Through this seasonal period we would like to invite you to Longleat and bring your children to enjoy the World Famous Zigong Chinese Lanterns.

This event would be the perfect opportunity to treat them to an end of year activity day or to supplement your in-class topics. One aspect could be to bring Chinese culture and celebration alive, though the traditional lantern displays and exhibitions.

New Year is a significant event in the Chinese calendar and next year will be the Year of the Monkey.  Some displays will feature the Chinese zodiac and the Legend of the Monkey King and there will be a focus on the Qin and Tang dynasties so there will be learning opportunities surrounding Chinese history too.
The Festival of Light takes place on selected dates from 13th Nov-3rd Jan, and into 2016 to celebrate Chinese new year on 8th Feb.
