From dusk, an extraordinary new light and sound show Waddesdon Imaginarium, will be projected onto the Manor’s ornate façade.  Visitors will be dazzled by roaming porcelain animals, dancing musical clocks, fluttering clouds of butterflies and moths and
18th-century portraits creating a fantastical visual story of Waddesdon.

Wrap up warm, head outside and discover light art by American artist Lauren Booth. Electric Menagerie winds from the Aviary to the Stables,  with neon goats, parrots and even a flea circus.
