FESTIVAL OF LIGHT

BACKGROUND

We are working with Hammerson for the official launch of Westquay South, a new event space surrounded by restaurants and leisure. Our teams work on Event Feasibility, Creative Production through to Event Health & Safety, Curation, Live Event and Technical Production to create events that complement the space and drive footfall.

CHALLENGE

  • After a successful soft launch with ‘Luminate Southampton’, The Fair returned to Westquay’s new event space for the official opening and completion celebration of Westquay South.
  • Festival of Light was live from 10th – 19th February from 5pm – 10pm each evening. The festival included digital mapping on the old city walls, interactive light installation, clusters of LED stars and LED cube archways.
  • There was also a structure with 24 rows and 24 columns of handing LED lights, 21 lights are handing on each string, 12,000 pixels which each had 6 LED lights in each pixel. Therefore the installation had 72,000 LED lights! The festival attracted thousands of visitors from inside and outside the city and coverage in national Press and all over social media.
