Looking for something different to do with your evenings? Head to After Dark at Chiswick House & Gardens for dazzling light installations, festive workshops and delicious street food and drinks.
Launching tonight, the stunning 18th Century Chiswick House and Gardens has been transformed into an event like no other.
World-renowned lighting designer and illumination artist Nick Gray – who’s designed lighting for Kasabian, Sub Focus and Mulberry just to name a few – has curated a 45-minute trail to bespoke music, flooding contemporary light through the gardens and bringing the historic backdrop of the venue to life.
Sip on a hot apple juice or a Bailey’s hot chocolate whilst you look out for art installations from up-and-coming artist Finn Thomson or take part in a screen printing or decorate your own baubles workshop.
And if you’re feeling hungry, we’ve got you covered! We’ve selected some of London’s very best street food to make sure there’s a taste to suit all the family. Enjoy steamy, oozing cheese toasties from The Cheese Truck, or grab a taste of Mexico by visiting Taco Dave (because Tacos aren’t just for Tuesdays, right?). Or go and see the team at The Duck Shed, they whip up burgers, wraps and salad boxes – and trust us, they have a vegan ‘duck’ dish that will fool even the meatiest carnivores. Finish off the evening with Love Churros, because, who doesn’t love churros?
