This article was written for our 2022 Glow Marwell event. For information about our 2023 Glow Marwell event, please see our Christmas page.

Make memories with a festive experience to remember this winter. Enjoy our glittering trails of fairy lights, beautifully lit trees, and light sculptures.

There will also be a number of interactive displays including fantastic glowing moon chairs. Lit in gently glowing hues of pink, green, white, blue, red, and yellow, they’re the perfect pit stop for a unique Instagram-worthy selfie. The chairs will form part of the 1.7km trail at Marwell during the evenings on selected dates in November and December.

Glow Marwell is one of the first events in the UK to have light-up moon chairs as part of a light event and they’re sure to light up your night! The immersive light extravaganza will transform our majestic grounds into a twinkling wonderland full of fairy lights, magic, and delight.

There will also be comfortingly cosy catering options with burgers, hot dogs, sausage rolls, sweet treats, and even pigs in blankets. Plus, enjoy mouth-watering vegan and gluten-free alternatives too, so nobody has to miss out.

If you fancy a festive tipple, enjoy mulled wine or winter Pimm’s for the grown-ups and if you’re the designated driver, why not try a scrummy peppermint Glow Mocha!

Glow Marwell opens at 5pm after the zoo has closed to Day Guests, and tickets are completely separate from zoo admission.
