Chiswick House and Gardens Trust is fundraising for new play equipment for the children’s play area next to the Chiswick House Café. The current equipment is sadly getting past its prime, with the only swing breaking beyond repair in July. Any new equipment is subject to the success of some grant applications and community fundraising, but the Trust is optimistic and excited about the prospect of developing a more engaging, inspiring and interactive space to play for children and their families.

We are pleased to announce the new winter light trail event for 2020 at Chiswick House and Gardens. Lightopia! Lightopia aims to revive and reinterpret the classics, transporting the audience into a very different world of expression and raw emotion with the light designs and interactive pieces. The designs are the timeless units of nature. The interaction between space and form is made possible by Lightopia, a spiritual society that exists only in the works and ideas of its creation. We want to build on the idea that Lightopia transcend the original form and serve an even higher purpose through careful artistic intervention. The event will run Wednesday – Sunday between the 22nd January and the 1st March. Entry from 17:00 – 21:00. To book tickets click here
