Winter Lights returns for a fifth year bringing together some of the most imaginative and exciting international artists working with light art today. The festival draws upon state-of-the-art light technology to deliver spectacular artworks, installations and experiences – many of them interactive or responsive – and has continued to gather pace with bigger and brighter installations every year.
Appealing to art lovers, families, young and the old, there is something for everyone, and all for free. Best seen after 5pm all the installations and light affects come alive during the evening until 10pm so join us on a dark January evening and experience a wealth of inventive and spectacular light effects and sculptures that will illuminate the Canary Wharf skyline.
You will also find Winter Lights Bites, a variety of vintage food trucks serving up delicious dishes and hot drinks to keep you warm.
Green Canary Wharf – We are committed to a green policy of reducing energy usage and recycling as much as is possible. Most of the light installations are as energy efficient as possible, using mains power instead of generators and using LED lighting. Transportation and equipment are combined to reduce the number of journeys and local contractors are used where possible.
