The award-winning Lightopia is back and ready to light up Heaton Park this Christmas brighter than ever with brand new installations and routes.
Embark on a journey through our new Fantasy themed magical light trail through the parklands, showcasing bright immersive installations, interactive lanterns, colourful lasers, and water shows.
Lightopia’s Fantasy Forest is home to the most extraordinary and mystical animals to uncover.
Walk through the enchanted, dreamlike forest and meet mythical creatures hidden in the woodland, including a nine tailed fox, unicorns and out-of-this-world flowers.
Visitors can also find the Fantasy Universe with a supernova display and bioluminescent plants; Dragon’s Land with two huge 40m dragons and fabled fairies; Candy Land, a sweet-inspired illuminated dreamland; Fantasy Bees – the iconic Manchester bee brought to life in a fantasy world; and a Wonders of the World display with giant mirrored, glistening crystals and gems.
