The Magical Lantern Festival is a collection of lantern sculpture that illuminate the grounds of Chiswick House celebrating cultures from around in vibrant colours. Inside, you’re invited to discover life-size and even larger-than-life sculptures from “Santa and his reindeers”, “a traditional Chinese Palace”, and even Noah’s arc and the animal kingdom.
