A fantasy display of projections, lighting and special effects – visible from miles around the 18th century showpiece house – as the enchanting Erddig Glow Christmas celebrations were launched at the weekend
National Trust Wales has kicked off the festive celebrations with an event at one of its most enchanting listed properties with a magical night-time illumination of Wrexham’s Downton Abbey-esque Erddig.
The Erddig Glow, which launched at the weekend showcased an exciting light display that illuminated the 18th century house and its romantic walled garden, complete with ‘frozen’ entry gates and trees, coloured up-lighters, static projections, feature lighting and more.
The ‘Glow’, which attracted hundreds of visitors on its inaugural night, will now take place every Friday and Saturday throughout December. The display can be seen for miles around the property making the house a perfect backdrop for a night-time stroll to escape the hustle and bustle and enjoy a feast for the senses.
ERDDIG CHRISTMAS PROJECTIONS
What’s more, the front of the country house – which reflects the upstairs downstairs life of a gentry family over 250 years ago – has an animated advent calendar projected on to it during the event which truly brings to life the spirit of Christmas.
The colourful display of numbered windows and doors has inspired a digital advent calendar which has been created to highlight key moments taking place across the places that the National Trust care for in Wales this December. It’ll be packed with events, recipes, key dates and lots of handy hints and tips – perfect for those looking to make the most of the season and get into the festive spirit with their loved ones.
With a fifth of people across Wales believing that receiving an advent calendar is one of the most special Christmas traditions – the calendar will allow people to re-visit some of their most favourite pastimes during the holiday season and celebrate at one of the many events across their locations.
Places featured include Bodnant Garden, Plas Newydd and Penrhyn Castle, which sit near and within the boundaries of Snowdonia National Park, as well as Erddig, Chirk Castle and Powis Castle. Dyffryn Gardens and Tredegar House in South-east Wales are also featured as well as a cluster of beautiful places scattered throughout the west of the country, including Llanerchaeron, Stackpole and Colby Woodland Garden.
Alongside the Erddig Glow, the Trust – Europe’s largest conservation charity which looks after some of the UK’s most important spaces and places – has unveiled a busier than ever schedule of Christmas events that include traditional carol services, fairs, winter garden displays, elf workshops and more. There will even be a few appearances from Father Christmas himself.
Each place has a colourful line up of winter events and days out that include cheese and truffle-making workshops at Powis Castle, wreath-making workshops at Llanerchaeron and elf workshops – meaning Christmas-lovers young and old will be able to enjoy the best of the outdoors while stepping back in time to see how Christmas was celebrated in times gone by.
Bodnant Gardens will also be opening its recently-unveiled winter garden this year – giving visitors the perfect opportunity to re-discover the outdoors and enjoy a host of seasonal wildlife and colours on display. Ten years in the making and at its best with a touch of frost, the garden is a great way to explore nature in the beautiful surroundings

Justin Albert, Director National Trust Wales said: “We know how important Christmas traditions are for families young and old all across Wales. Our festive celebrations this year aim to re-kindle the magic of Christmas and let people enjoy the wonders of outdoors despite the drop in temperatures – whether making their own decorations, carolling or enjoying a glass of mulled wine during a walk among our vast gardens.
“There’s tonnes going on at each of our places and we can’t wait to welcome people across the country in for a mince pie and a taste of Christmases this year.”

High powered video projection equipment created a mixture of Projection Mapping and massive images which stretched across the 100 meter exterior castle walls bringing the petrol heads in .
As the cars each sped by the huge crowds of people lined up for the start of the rally the further searchlights lit the way along the Quay site and as each car entered the podium flames shooted up in the air wooing the crowds.

Once they were off to the screams of the crowds at Conwy – they were welcomed again on the final stage of the rally around The Great Orm with huge mountain projections from the Llandudno Pier…

Wales Rally GB officially got underway with a glorious ceremonial celebration at Conwy Castle this evening (14 November) before newly crowned WRC champion Sébastien Ogier stamped his authority on the event by setting the pace after the opening three stages.
The Frenchman led his VW team-mate Jari-Matti Latvala on stages one and two, before M-Sport’s Thierry Neuville topped the final stage to set up an enthralling three-way battle at the top of the standings.
CONWY CASTLE WRGB PROJECTIONS 2013
After lasers and rally images had been projected on to the medieval castle walls in the picturesque Conwy Quay in front of a huge crowd, the scene was finally set for the world’s finest rally drivers to fire off into the legendary Welsh forest in complete darkness, with the leading cars being flagged away by Minister for Culture and Sport, John Griffiths.
CONWY CASTLE WRGB FLAME EFFECTS
Volkswagen Motorsport immediately laid down a marker on the opening 6.95km Gwydyr stage, with Latvala the first driver to take to the dark and damp conditions. Targeting a hat-trick of Wales Rally GB victories this weekend, the Finn set a benchmark time of 4:44.4s, which his team-mate Ogier immediately bettered by just 1.3s.
The only other driver who seemed able to cope with the early pace of the lead duo was the fellow Volkswagen Polo R WRC of Andreas Mikkelsen. The Norwegian set the quickest time of all on the opening split and was only narrowly down on his stable-mates after the second sector. He lost time late on, however, and eventually dropped behind the Qatar World Rally Team Ford of Neuville.
The other Fords of Mads Østberg and Evgeny Novikov followed in the times but there was drama further down the order when the final WRC runner Michal Solowow slid off the road, before his Ford Fiesta WRC was collected by the WRC2 machine of Yazeed Al Rajhi.
Ogier edged out a further advantage on the 9.28km stage two, which horseshoes its way through the Penmachno valley. Latvala kept him honest, however, as he completed the section just 0.9s shy of his team-mate, with Neuville a further second back.
“It’s a nice battle already between Seb and I,” said Latvala. “It’s not easy – in the places where it’s wet and muddy I don’t quite have the confidence yet.”
The top three runners were separated by less than four seconds but the gap back to the chasing pack had already increased to more than 12s. The Citroën of Mikko Hirvonen was the best of the rest as both he and Østberg leapfrogged Mikkelsen, despite the latter suffering with persisting gear problems.
If Volkswagen thought it was set to have it all its own way on day one then Neuville had other ideas, responding in fine style on Thursday’s final stage. The Belgian beautifully weaved his way through the 7.52km of Clocaenog Forest to set the fastest time and jump ahead of Latvala in the overall standings in the process – the lead trio separated by just five seconds.
Hirvonen remains in touch after an impressive late run in his Citroën DS3 WRC, whilst Qatar M-Sport World Rally Team driver Østberg resisted the challenge from Mikkelsen to maintain fifth.
Robert Kubica swapped positions with Russian Novikov throughout the evening, with the Pole in a brilliant seventh after completing his first day, well night, in a full-blown WRC car without incident. “It’s going okay,” said Kubica. “Everything is new for us. I have no experience of these conditions – at least in the day I will be able to see!”
Local hero Elfyn Evans leads WRC2 in his M-Sport Ford Fiesta R5 with the Welshman impressively inside the overall top ten as he targets a maiden class victory on home soil.
The action goes up a notch tomorrow with six stages scheduled, including two RallyFest runs at Sweet Lamb. The morning’s three stages in Hafren, Sweet Lamb and Myherin are then tackled again in identical order later the same afternoon, giving the competitors some welcome familiarity during the day.
It’s a familiar scene in the standings of course with champion Ogier leading the way, but it’s clear he has a fierce battle on his hands if he’s to win Wales Rally GB for the first time in his career.
Sébastien Ogier said: “It is quite a good start. It’s never easy to start the rally in the night, especially in the tricky and slippery conditions. We didn’t push too hard tonight but we did enough to take the lead. I am sure my experience is going to help me over the
weekend but this is a rally where it’s never over until it’s over. It’s going to be a tough challenge like it always is here but I feel I am better prepared than before to face it.”
