January: cold, dark and miserable. At least in December we have the festive lights to pull us through but post-new year, we start turning those off. Luckily, The Winter Lights Festival is returning to Canary Wharf for the first time since 2020, an 11-day display of luminous installations, which’ll make the darkness a bit easier to bear. This year, over 20 glowing artworks by internationally-acclaimed artists will be brought together in what will be the fest’s biggest edition yet.
The show will comprise both new commissions and works that have never before been seen in the UK. Among the pieces that’ll be taking over the wharf will be Permafrost – Sleeping Giants by Fisheye, which will see brightly-coloured, giant mammoths land in London and Tom Lambert’s Out of the Dark, a kaleidoscopic installation of eye-catching moving colour.
You can get right up close and personal to the installations as many of them are interactive, and best of all, it’s totally FREE so brave the cold and enjoy those January nights.
