Light Night returns to illuminate Wellington Place on 12 and 13 October.

Light Installations 

Neon Art Walk, Emergency Exit Arts (UK)

‘This Is The Place’ is a series of illuminative LED neon murals created by artists at Emergency Exit Arts. This installation not only explores themes of home, belonging, and migration, but also reflects on human’s connection to our ultimate home, Earth, by including common creatures in nature. This vibrant interactive installation effectively casts a rainbow spectacular all over its surrounding environment.

Odyssey, Greenaway & Greenaway (UK)

Odyssey is a beautiful journey through space, time, light and imagination, reflecting on our place in the universe. Presented as an LED monolith structure, this artwork is a bold, dynamic, light-based installation that takes viewers through the cosmos and out into space. Standing alone in the darkness, the ambient sequence brings the far reaches of the universe into unusual spaces, nestled into nature or juxtaposed in urban environments.

Family Friendly Fun
