Thousands of tickets sold for Gulliver’s Land of Lights
Thousands of people are expected to visit Milton Keynes for an incredible light and lantern festival which is opening in the city on Saturday 12 November 2022.
More than 6,500 early-bird tickets were sold for Land of Lights on the first day of sale last month with thousands more snapped up since and, as tickets are now available for general sale, organisers are confident the event will be a hugely popular attraction for Milton Keynes this winter.
Land of Lights, which will be held at Gulliver’s Resort from 12 November 2022 – 26 February 2023, will include 12 vivid dreamworlds of featuring gigantic lanterns inspired by animals, mega monuments and wonders of the natural world.
Guests will explore one mile of amazing light installations, which include over 50,000 LED lights. The experience will feature an eclectic mix of music and entertainment. A wide selection of street food and seasonal drink options will be available throughout the festival.
More than 100 people are involved in the production process undertaken by Zigong Lantern Group, which takes three months to finish as each lantern is carefully handcrafted by skilled artisans.
Darren Hoy, Land of Lights Festival Manager, said: “We are thrilled to announce the opening night of Land of Lights will be Saturday 12 November.
