The Countdown To Glow Marwell Has Begun

divider

As we enter the countdown to Glow Marwell, we’re excited to announce the arrival of our Marwell wishing tree. The tree will be lit during our after-dark light event and we need guests to help us fill it with wonderful wishes waiting to be granted.

The origin of wishing trees goes back as far as the 17th century in the UK when they were believed to have the power to heal the unwell. Over time, they’ve evolved and are now seen as a way of connecting people with the things that matter most to them.

Wishing for a white Christmas? An exciting new job? Or help for our endangered species? Why not come and see whether our tree can make your wish come true?

The Marwell wishing tree can be found between Marwell Hall and the tiger enclosure and there’s no need to bring supplies as we’ve made sure there are pens, tags, and string for everyone to use.

As the tree fills with wishes, the gently twinkling fairy lights will make them a lovely addition to our magical Glow Marwell display for all our guests to see.

Marvel at the graceful swans reflecting in the pond, take a stroll through our stunning UV garden, and strike a pose in a moon chair. There will be laser effects, light projections, and fairy lights galore as we transform Marwell’s majestic grounds into a magical winter wonderland. We’ll also have marshmallow toasting over cosy fire pits, festive catering, and hot and cold refreshments to spread the festive cheer.

With just a week left before our event goes live, we’d strongly recommend booking in advance to avoid disappointment.
