Winter Lights FestivalBrightening the darkest January days, the Winter Lights Festival at Canary Wharf brings an array of illuminated installations to the city. The interactive festival - where you can actually get up close to the light sources - includes 30 sculptures, lasers, projections and digital art. Works include Angels of Freedom, by Merav Etan and Gaston Zah, in which five giant wings with white halos invite people to turn themselves into angels. Also among the works making their UK debut is Marcus Lyall's On Your Wavelength, a mind-powered laser and sound installation of over 20,000 LEDs. Over the weekend of 19th to 21st January live graffiti created from light will be on show with Luma Paint Light Graffiti (Lichtfaktor feat. Helge Bomber Steinmann), transforming any object into a live painting canvas.

 

About Canary Wharf

Home to the big banks, Canary Wharf is a purpose-built office hub in the regenerated Docklands. With the site extending to over 97 acres it's almost like a separate city in the east of London, powered by and for the financial sector. More about Canary Wharf
