A first for Mayfield Park this Christmas, The Twilight Trail is set to illuminate Manchester with a brand-new winter light show. Unlocking the gates after dusk, The Twilight Trail transforms Mayfield Park into a twinkling, city-centre escape. Running from Friday 17 November until Sunday 31 December.
Topping the line-up of astonishing visual installations, The Twilight Trail is set to have a musical curation by the iconic and much-loved Manchester based collective La Discotheque. To celebrate the first ever Twilight Trail, La Discotheque has invited the internationally acclaimed DJ and Producer Kenny Dope to soundtrack the light trail as visitors immerse themselves with his special Disco Heat mix with some key moments of the trail, including the finale projection, having accompanying music specially selected by La Discotheque.
Taking over the 6.5-acre Mayfield Park, visitors can expect to experience the park at night this festive season with never-before-seen immersive light displays, lantern installations, and a captivating soundscape.
Explore the trail to discover an array of installations including a Spirograph tunnel, fairy-light tunnel, followed by abstract light installation and a disco under the bridges with stunning mirror ball installations.
The path leads to a magical wonderland, boasting a giant modern cone style Christmas tree surrounded by huge Christmas presents and more. In addition to this, Mayfield Park’s children playground is transformed into a wondrous night-time adventure, impressively lit up to be experienced like never before.
