Longleat Hosts UK’s First Drive-In Night Glow

Longleat UKs First Drive-in Night Glow Event

Longleat hosted the UK’s first ever drive-in night glow event this weekend with more than 30 hot air balloons lit up against the stunning backdrop of its Elizabethan stately home.

Balloons in a series of unusual shapes and sizes including Longleat’s own lion and koala, a panther, a wolf and even a guinea pig lit their burners as part of a dramatic musical showcase, which visitors were able to view from the socially-distanced comfort of their cars.

The two-day, sell-out event also saw the first public outing of a brand new Dolly the sheep hot air balloon.
