One of the many exciting things about living in London is the array of events, shows and exhibitions on offer, but only some of them have the word “spectacular” written all over. Take the Lumiere Art Lighting Festival for example, on show in King’s Cross and The West End just a few days ago. What an amazingly beautifully sensorial and spiritual show that was! Especially the installations around the West End, which were by far my favourites…Westminster Abbey being the ultimate end to our tour.
Despite the very cold weather, the amount of people that attended the show was unbelievable, sometimes we forget how crowded London really can be, nevertheless, as most of the installations were up high in the sky and because of the huge scale of most of them, each installation was clearly visible and just enchanting.
This journey of discovery, the display of a multitude of vibrant colours, the lighting effects, the variety of characters, shapes and forms was like going through a real life fable, a bit like Alice in Wonderland if you like… Off to Chiswick House next for the Magical Lantern Festival – 3rd Feb till 6th March – what a wonderful way to welcome in Chinese New Year 2016, the year of the Monkey!
