THE Hampshire Chronicle has teamed up with the National Trust’s Kingston Lacy to give readers a chance to win a family ticket to the opening nigh of the garden’s festive event.

A magical trail, featuring enchanting illuminations, will transform the beautiful gardens in Dorset this Christmas, and we are offering you the chance to be there on the opening night, December 3.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year when twinkling lights and seasonal sounds fill the air with festive fun.

Wrap up warm and be transported into a winter wonderland where you will discover sparkling tunnels of light, walk under giant baubles and beneath trees drenched in jewel-like colour.

Independent street food vendors bring a delicious twist to tasty treats on offer.

Have yourself a holly, jolly Christmas and complete your walk under the stars with a spiced winter warmer or hot chocolate shared with someone special.

Christmas at Kingston Lacy will be open on selected dates between December 3, 2021, and January 2, 2022.
