VIDEO: Trip the light fantastic at Waddesdon Manor

International light artist Bruce Munro makes a welcome return with his outstanding Cantus Arcticus installation, which is part of the new spring collection at Waddesdon Manor.

With the Northern Lights as his inspiration, the curved rows of slender glass tubes give a sense of walking through the ripples in the night sky during such an event.

If history is more your thing, then the new Sacred Stitches exhibition in the main house is worth a look.

Set in the servants quarters at the top of the Manor, the collection of rare ecclesiastical textiles provides an insight into life from the 14th Century.

Tours with curator Rachel Boak will unlock the secrets behind the fabric collected by the Rotheschild family and prices start at £12 for National Trust members or £30 for a general member of the public. There are two tours starting at 10.30am or 2pm and run on May 31 and July 12 or 27.

> Bruce Munro’s light works Cantus Arcticus is on display in the Stables until Sunday, October 27.
