Here’s a lovely autumn family night out: Fountains by Floodlight. The National Trust have made a few tweaks to this popular event but it’s still set to be a memorable event for all ages. Taking place from 19th to 25th October 2020, you’ll need to be quick to snap up tickets when they go on sale on Friday 16th October 2020.
What’s coming up at Fountains by Floodlight in 2020
Although there’s no choir this year, there will be recorded music echoing through the ruins. You can watch the sun set and marvel as the abbey and ruins glow with light. Don’t forget to take a torch or two and wrap up warm for a night to remember.
Tickets and timings
National Trust and English Heritage members get free entry to this event. For everyone else, it’s the normal admission price of £13 per adult, £6.50 per child and £32.50 per family. You will need to book pre-timed entry from Friday 16th October. You’ll have to arrive in your pre-booked time slot. The event starts when it gets dark, and the lights will be on from 5pm. The last timed slot is 7 – 7.30pm and car parks close at 9pm.
Food and drink
This event sounds like it calls for a flask of hot chocolate, but if you’d like to buy your own refreshments on site, there’ll be a variety of hot and cold food and drink options available.
