Festival of Light is back on the Esplanade.

Are you ready to #letlightinWQ?

Join us for a stunning showcase of brand new immersive and interactive light displays on the Esplanade, in front of the Old City Walls.

We can reveal the new light displays include the following:

Planetarium is inspired by the ancient concept of Planetariums (dome-shaped theatres) and viewers will be taken on a journey through a marvellous universe as lights depict planets, moonlight, beautiful starry skies and a sensational eclipse.

Sunrise a bespoke commissioned piece for Westquay, visualises an abstract sunrise made of 4000 points of light on strands that will radiate from the centre to the edge.

Wave consists of some 500 individual suspended orbs, brought to life through light and sound to create a walkthrough immersive experience reminiscent of the ocean.

Control No Control invites guests to use their hands and body to act on its sound and graphics, creating a unique experience for each and every individual.

located along the vaults of a pathway, consists of two sets of five bicycles facing each other, where the public will use pedal power to project beams of light to the opposite side in an attempt to defeat their opponents.
