A postcard from… Electric Woods: Spirit of the Orient at Robin Hill, Isle of Wight (January 2017)

This was the first time we’d been to an Electric Woods event, but we’ll definitely be back again! Robin Hill was filled with oriental entertainment, light displays and music, in celebration of the Chinese new year. Dozens of lanterns and strings of lights were hung to guide the way, while stunning light displays were projected onto the trees and the story of the rooster unfolded. An illuminated Lion Dance in the amphitheatre was highly entertaining and oriental food was available to complete the theme. There were two real highlights for us; the bridge with cascading water was just stunning and the falconry show was fantastic. Despite a fair bit of rain and a small opening-night audience, South Coast Falconry put on a really informative and engaging display. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
