Fairy Light Fan Canopy at Ufton Court

Oakwood Events Blog Post

The fan canopy is a dramatic display of fairy lights that suits the layout of the large Tithe Barn at Ufton Court really well.

The lights fan out elegantly from a high point above the rear barn doors, where the top table is normally positioned, to a lower point on the opposite side of the barn with the vertical wooden pillars.

It's a little tricky to picture the true scale of this large canopy from the photos and we're sometimes asked how low down it comes. The truth is that even at its lowest point it's well out of reach, even for tall people standing on tip-toes!

The lights make a stunning impact as guests enter the barn through the main doors from the garden area and draw the eye towards the top table, making it the focal point of the space. Such a large number of fairy lights give the barn a warm glow at any time of day and look particularly impressive at night, when they can be dimmed during the evening's entertainment.
