Astley Hall Set To Become Luminous Again

Written by on 22/11/2018

Chorley’s historic house, Astley Hall, is all set to be transformed into an enchanted winter wonderland again with bright coloured lights, music and unique artistic performances.

Between 5pm and 10pm on Saturday 24 November Chorley’s historic gem will be lit up in magnificent LED spotlights and hundreds of candles to help mark the start of Chorley’s Christmas Celebrations.

Come along and see 400 years of history in a different light. From the Tudors and Stuarts to the Georgians, Victorians and Edwardians, meet the characters from the past as we illuminate Astley Hall and the Walled Garden.


Councillor Peter Wilson, Deputy Leader of Chorley Council said:


“Astley Illuminated has become one of Astley’s most popular events and this year it is back brighter than ever. For one night only in November, Astley Hall will come alive with light, music and mystery as the jewel in Chorley’s crown is transformed. This amazing event has to be seen as the historic Astley Hall is beautifully lit with magnificent light displays and candles. We love putting on events for our community and are very excited to see the turn out this year. The event is free to attend and we highly recommend that people come along to get into the festive spirit.”


Cafe Ambio will be serving delicious hot food and drink and there will also be other seasonal stalls outside the hall serving drinks and mulled wine.

Members of the public are encouraged to park in the town centre and use the free park and ride service that will be running from Union Street (outside Booths) to Hallgate from 4.30pm-10.30pm every 10 minutes.
