It might seem a long way off in these less than joyous times, but tickets have gone on sale for a major Christmas event.

Luminate Sandringham will see the woods around the Queen's Norfolk retreat stage a dazzling light trail again this winter.

The event runs from November 10 - December 18. Last year's highlight was a river of lights that flowed through a firebreak in the pines.

Organisers said: "We are refreshing the trail this year with lots of new light installations and can't wait to be open again."
