Light Nights at the Park this weekend

As winter draws in, come and celebrate Light Nights in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park – a weekend of light themed spectaculars in a stunning location.

Come and explore the Park as you’ve never seen it before – bathed in stunning lights. Light Nights is a free celebration with fire and light performances and atmospheric lighting within the trees and landscape.

Discover the beautifully illuminated Tumbling Bay playground after dark while listening to the history and sounds of the Park’s industrial landscape through a sound installation by local artist Jim Carey. Marvel at the stilt-walkers, fire-jugglers and join in the lantern-making workshops.

There will be stalls, dancers and a Mechanical Menagerie – a skeleton-driven punk-steam caravan that spits fire, as well as seasonal specials including mulled wine and pumpkin soup from the Unity Kitchen Café in the Timber Lodge – lots of bright ideas on a dark evening.

Light Nights will be held from 1 – 3 November, 4pm – 9pm. It is free and suitable for all of the family.

Dennis Hone, Chief Executive, London Legacy Development Corporation, said:

“Light Nights will see Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park transformed under darkness, bathed in spectacular light displays. We’ve already welcomed more than 700,000 visitors since the north of the Park opened in July and this winter we’re continuing our programme of events.

Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is already becoming a must-visit destination and this will continue once the south of the Park fully opens in spring 2014. We are on track to deliver a truly amazing Park and a fantastic legacy for east London.”
