THIS year’s free lights trail event at Arrow Valley is set to be “more immersive than ever” as new details are announced.

Interactive features such as a video wall, mirror ball lights and lasers will be included in the trail which takes visitors around the lake at Arrow Valley Countryside Centre.

Redditch Borough Council which is hosting the lights trail has collaborated with a leading events company to secure the special effects.

A host of festive characters, fairies and Christmas Elves will be waiting to meet and greet everyone as they make their way around the trail.
