Back again to brighten up January, Winter Lights 2020 is a free light display on daily from 16-25 January  (4pm-10pm).

Here are the highlights;

LACTOLIGHT BY LACTOLIGHT

Winter Lights 2020

Made from 7,344 recycled plastic milk bottles, they become a trippy low-res screen. Like if you stood way to close to the Piccadilly Circus lights!

NEON TREE BY HAWTHORN

Winter Lights 2020

Made even better with its positioning by a number of glowing ‘Light Benches’ you can find Neon Tree (which kind of does what it says on the) tin in Canada Square Park.

Made from 100 red circles of light, the placement across the Cubitt Steps Bridge make for an amazing reflective scene.

SASHA TREES BY ADAM DECOLIGHT

Back for another year but in a new location, you can find these beauties at Ten Bank Street and they’re just as photogenic as last year.

LIQUID SOUP BY ENTERTAINMENT EFFECTS

Winter Lights 2019

Another returning piece adds colours to the permanent fountains in Cabot Square.

DITTO BY ITHACA STUDIO

Winter Lights 2020

The selfie star from this year’s display has to be the glowing bulbs of this column of moving light. Covered in mirrors you can stand inside this round space to be surrounded by lights glowing in time with the music.

AFFINITY BY AMIGO & AMIGO AND S1T2

Winter Lights 2020

Representing the brain’s connectivity, this large piece can be found in Montgomery Square and reacts as you step closer to it, creating a unique pattern which depends on how long you stay.

The prize for most interactive has to be this one. You walk across a slippy ramp covered in foam, as you walk you hear crackling thunder and flashes of lighting within the ‘clouds’ below. Next, the fans gear up and before you know it you’re surrounded by white foam, like some kind of cold Ibizia novelty club night. Weird but most entertaining. (Just watch out for your phone and camera!)

Winter Lights 2020 will take place between 16-25 January. The official website is here. There’s also a handy map you can download here.
