WHILE many summer holiday plans have been cancelled this year, a number of families have been turning their attention to the end of 2020.

We know many people don't normally like to think about Christmas at the very least until their flip flops have been packed away at the end of August.

But tickets are now on sale for the increasingly popular Christmas lights trail at Dunham Massey.

A spokesman added: "Now in its fourth year, surround yourself with sparkle as the after dark trail lights up for 2020.

"You’ll find new moments to share with friends and family – brand new bright lights for winter nights.

"Enter beside giant glittering deer into a world festooned with seasonal cheer enhanced by a soundtrack of festive classics.

"Wander beneath stunning tree canopies drenched in Christmas colour. Immerse yourself within bouncing lines of light and discover giant luminescent sculptures rising high into the night sky.

"Stroll beside colour-changing lakeside reflections and under trees dripping with silvery shards of light, baubles and stars.

"Huge snowflakes create an aerial kaleidoscope over the Gardens and the tunnel of light returns with twinkling splendour. This year, why not pause for a moment of quiet reflection at the crystal and fire garden, aglow with hundreds of flickering flames."

This year the event runs from November 20 to December 30.

Tickets bought in advance online are £20 for adults, £13 for children aged three to 16 and £60 for a family ticket.
