There's no Magical Lantern Festival at Chiswick House & Gardens this winter. Instead, a new lights festival is taking place — After Dark. Lasers, light installations and a giant moon line a trail through the gardens, beginning with a show choreographed to music by Serge from Kasabian, and ending in a street food tent.

It's a lot more grown-up than the former lantern festival — although kids are of course welcome. These photos give you an idea of what to expect:
