About us and our charity partners

"We are working hard to develop the best light trails in the World. By caring about our staff, contractors, venues and of course our customers we aim to build long-term relationships with all whom experience Luminate"

We are proudly owned, operated and ran by 2 brothers and one Wife/Sister-in-law. Together, we have been running our lovingly curated events for over 12 years. We aim to create amazing, enchanted, sensory light experiences around the country. Suitable for everyone to enjoy – and one that our family and friends would love too!

We decided from the outset to ignore the old adage of “never work with your friends and family” and instead found it became our goal to do the exact opposite. Dads, cousins, aunties, mums, sisters, friends, friends of friends. We have been helped along every step of our journey by an army of loyal helpers, doing anything we need to help us create fabulous events for all of our lovely visitors to enjoy. We have also been lucky enough to make some new friends along the way, courtesy of some of the independent contractors and venue partners who we have had the pleasure of working with.

We strive to keep our events feeling fresh and exciting every year and we will always be committed to never accepting anything less than the very best, for every element of our magical trails.

Luminate is a delightful family experience to be enjoyed equally by young and old alike.. A great alternative for date-night, for the romantics amongst us (we are very proud to have had no less than 5 proposals at Luminate now!), a magical family night out, or a different, enchanting take on an evening out with the girls. Not to mention a fab alternative to the traditional works' Christmas night out.

With four successful years of bringing this extraordinary and wonderful event together with the help of our amazing team – we are working to ensure that 2023 will be our best year yet!

Green Scheme

We are committed to trying to improve our working practices, to lessen our impact environmentally. To that end this year, across our sites at which it is reasonably practicable to do so, we are trialling the use of solar powered car parking tower lights, as an alternative to diesel ran ones. Our hope is that if the trial is successful, we can then increase and extend their usage across our carparks in subsequent years.

We are proud to have sponsored the mature tree planting on the West Car park at our beautiful Sandringham Estate venue
