What's On Isle of Wight - Electric Woods at Robin Hill

About

Electric Woods is a series of stunning evening events featuring a spectacle of themed light, colour and sound set in a five acre pocket of ancient woodland at Robin Hill Adventure Park & Gardens in Newport on the Isle of Wight.

As dusk falls, a beautiful array of lighting brings a warm and magical glow to the trees, woodland glades, and paths enhanced by relaxing music, delicious food and stunning entertainment. Each of the season’s Electric Woods events has a different twist, with themes from Oriental to Indian.

These unique events are perfect for all ages, with the inspiring ambience of the magical illuminations captivating the youngest visitor to the very oldest, creating memorable experiences that may last a life time for all that visit.

There are also a number of illuminated play areas which are perfect for children to let off steam before bed time, while adults can sit and enjoy live performances of music and other themed entertainment whilst treating themselves to a drink from the bar or some delightful hot food.

The Electric Woods is a must-visit evening destination for all visitors to the Isle of Wight.
