"Though the storm is at it's worst (on Tuesday evening), we have been advised by our safety team that strong winds will still be occurring in Northampton on Wednesday.
"Due to the walk being through a woodland with overhead trees, it could put our customers at risk and this is something that we would never do.
"We appreciate your understanding and are sincerely sorry to disrupt your plans."
The event organisers expect the trail to be open on Thursday, December 9.
Those who have already purchased tickets for the cancelled dates will be automatically refunded and are asked to allow seven to 10 working days for CM tickets to process the refunds.
The spokesperson continued: "This situation is entirely out of our control, but we also know how frustrating it will be for you and therefore we would like to offer you a 20 percent discount when you re-book online."
Those wanting to re-book the Winter Light Trail and claim the 20 percent discount can visit the event's ticketing page and use promo code DELAPRELLIGHTS20 - published on the event's website - at checkout to make sure of the discount.
