The event features acrobats, musicians and 47 groups of light installations, including the Tree of Light centrepiece – a 10m tall sculpture surrounded by 20 drums, which Lightopians can bang on and change the tree’s colours illuminating the night sky. This magical combination of music and light is ever changing and allows visitors to become part of the artistic experience.
An 18m peacock is synchronized to music as light pulses through its wings in time with the beat and a field of 70,000 individual roses will flicker and blaze across an expanse of land. All installations have been designed by artist Ava Moradi, with a mission to create an immersive artistic experience for visitors of all ages.
Chiswick House is also playing a key role in the exhibition as state of the art 3D video mapping creates a visual masterpiece across its grand exterior, bringing the story of Lightopia to life.
For families going to the experience with children in tow there is a dedicated kid’s zone where little Londoners can enjoy a fairytale world of candy, flowers and rides. Meanwhile the responsible adults can enjoy snacks from the on site street food stalls and the licensed bars.
