The trail, through woodland and garden, is full of art, music, poetry and film to be enjoyed at twilight.

During the recent lockdown, artist Sarah Cannell brought together a group of 12 artists to create the experience, which brings together work inspired by the local area.

Artists have created a range of pieces which work after dark within the grounds of the Raveningham Centre. From giant moths to marsh pony fire sculptures, a harbour full of willow boats, to film and music.

The project was funded by Creative Odyssey CIC, a community interest company creating arts projects in nature to inspire and soothe the soul.
