Thousands spent the weekend walking lantern-lit trails at Kew's country gardens in Sussex.

Now in its fourth year, the Glow Wild festival at Wakehurst in Ardingly features animals such as foxes, badgers and door mice, as well as floating lanterns containing the thoughts and wishes of school children, asked to reflect on the passing year.

In its sold-out run, the winter lantern festival also features a 'river of fire' and a 4D projection over the Elizabethan Mansion.
