Time Out says

Everyone’s favourite riverside culture hotspot Southbank Centre be aglow again with festive illuminations. Winter Light is a free, open-air exhibition featuring an electric smorgasbord of lightworks (which is what we’re calling these now) from super-talented artists from around the world. All of them make mind-bending use of light, colour and even boundary-pushing film to deal with issues and topics surrounding nature, technology, urban life and spirituality.

Works featured include: Dichroic Sphere (a light sculpture powered by a single energy-efficient bulb); Sphere (a gas-filled tube that rotates to produce a giant glowing orb illusion); Loomin (a lovely neon canopy above the trees of The Queen’s Walk); Sixty Minute Spectrum (a light show transforming the Southbank Centre into an enormous colourful clock) and Stella (which stands for Super Terrestrial Electric Light Aurora – ooh).

Why not combine your visit with a trip to Southbank Centre’s Winter Market?
