Cambo Estate’s annual snowdrops
extravangza has proved to an even bigger hit than ever.

Celebrating the blooming of spring, the estate each year welcomes hundreds of visitors to delight in the vast woodland carpets of the snowdrops.

The highlight is always the Snowdrops by Starlight, a magical walk through the woods, which are transformed by light and sound installations. Throughout the woods, beside the estate’s existing artworks, visitors found etched mirrors suspended from trees, spotlit and adding to the theatre of the occasion.

There were also a series of art and craft workhops.

Catherine Erskine, of Cambo, said it was always wonderful to share the beauty of the snowdrops with visitors and, this year, there had more than ever, with the workshops also being exceptionally well attended.
