Winter Lights Festival 2018, Canary Wharf

It’s back! From tonight Canary Wharf will be illuminated by sculptures, structures and installations as part of the Winter Lights Festival, an annual celebration of light technology and art.

Over 30 cutting edge installations and artworks provided by artists from across the world including UK, Greece, Australia, New Zealand and USA. They will be on show both indoors and outside from 5-10pm across Canary Wharf estate where you can also enjoy an array of over 300 bars, shops and restaurants and not forgetting Canary Wharf’s ice rink in Canada Square where a special offer for 2 for 1 will be available during the festival. You can buy your tickets here: http://www.icerinkcanarywharf.co.uk/

I am particularly looking forward to seeing Amanda Parer’s Intrude, huge inflatable and illuminated white rabbits in Jubilee Park. 

In past years, what I found interesting was to leisurely walk around Canary Wharf at night; a place which has the reputation of being full of men in dark suits walking in what could be described as a human version of an ants nest. The illuminations drew in a wide variety of people all seeming to enjoy the unexpected freedom of movement compared to the crowded streets of central London for Lumiere London 2018.

We are so lucky to live in such a vibrant world city. Sometimes though, it's hard to find events off the tourist trail and experience the real Londo...
