What do our Lightopians say?

Don’t take our word for it. See our testimonials.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas - at least it is inside Heaton Park anyway. That's because the popular Lightopia lanterns festival is back for another festive season and it's bigger than ever.

Manchester Evening News

The award-winning festival Lightopia has returned to Manchester for the third year in a row to light up Heaton Park once more.

Along the way, expect clowns, dragons and animals to enchant the kids. And you too of course!

Timeout

Enjoy the most wonderful time of the year at Lightopia, as you pass by Santa’s sleigh, glistening snowflakes and make your own festive soundtrack with a giant interactive walking piano.
