After Dark

  • Chiswick House and Gardens (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Brighten up your winter evenings with a visit to Chiswick House and Gardens, where a brand new light display is transforming the historic property and its grounds.

A series of modern light installations will illuminate the 18th century gardens and architecture, giving visitors the chance to enjoy a very different park after dark.

Walk the trail that weaves through the grounds and see Chiswick House brought to life with a projected light show set to a curated soundtrack. Treat yourself to a bite to eat from one of the food traders in the walled garden and, if you’re looking for something extra special, book a table at our exclusive Supper Club.

After Dark will be running every Thursday to Sunday, from 15th November until 30th December 2018, and everyone’s welcome – including dogs!

Clare Grossman, 'New York Suite'

Clare Grossman, 'New York Suite'

New York’s swirling energy and shifting moods are captured in a glorious suite of etchings and paintings by British artist Clare Grossman.

All are inspired by New York, but each has its own emphasis – on a moment; a time of day; the shifting light, mood and palette of an ever-changing city.

“New York as a city inspires me,” says Clare. “It’s a fast city, much faster than London. People walk fast, talk fast, serve you even faster. Traffic whizzes by, with blurred yellow taxi cabs everywhere. There’s steam on the streets, traffic lights appear suspended in the air, the energy on street level is frenetic.

“But when you look up, the buildings dwarf you, they reach for the skies, their glass windows reflect back the clouds and the sky above. They optically melt into one another. Everything seems calm and serene."

Hear of Winter

Christmas is coming and Sally can't sleep – it's far too hot! The weather has gone topsy-turvy. No-one can remember the last time it snowed, or even rained, and her father can't sell any of his umbrellas. To help her sleep Dad reads her a story about the last snowflake.

That night Sally has a dream that changes everything – a mysterious silver spark transforms her bedroom into a glistening, white field where she meets the glowing heart of Winter.

Watermans welcomes back Lyngo Theatre, who brought you the playfully comic Snow Play in 2016. Heart of Winter is their magical new musical show which warmly celebrates family, friendship and the good fortune of finding the winter we really need and want…with the precious festive offering of lots of fluffy snow!

Find your joyful heart of winter at Watermans this Christmas!
