The ultimate winter light festival is bigger and brighter than ever this Christmas! Bursting with exciting new installations, a mesmerising festive water show and some very special star guests!!
London September 2022 – The award-winning Lightopia Festival returns to Crystal Palace Park, bringing its incredible lightshow to London for the second year, and it’s bigger and brighter than ever this time!
The ultimate neon winter wonderland experience will not only showcase immersive, multi-sensory interactive light and lantern installations, and a spectacular festive water show, but this year we also have some special guests!
For the first time ever, Lightopia London will host the iconic TV family, The Clangers, stars of the era-defining, cross-generation epic, giving families a special chance to meet the BBC CBeebies creatures!
Crystal Palace Park will be adorned in light again from mid-November, as it plays host to the magical illuminated winter wonderland that is Lightopia. Bursting with intense colour, discovery and festive spirit, this immersive lantern and light show will once again create magical family memories and will be a must-see for all the family this festive season.
Lightopia’s ‘Magic of Christmas’ will be a place of festive awe and joyous escape into an incredible world of light. Lightopia’s enrapturing displays will each tell a magical story, with some epic highlights to enjoy including; ‘The Wonders of the Dragon’, a breath-taking light dragon who dramatically breathes ‘fire’, lighting up the surrounding trees and crystals; ‘The Magical Forest’, a fantasy world of mythical winged creatures; the enchanting and organic ‘Land of Fairy Literature’, ‘Earth Flower’ and ‘Forest Mushroom’; the spooky and wonky world of the ‘Haunted Road’ and of course the ultimate ‘Christmas’ installation of giant snowmen, baubles and sugar canes.
The hero piece of the event, and a first for Lightopia London, is the illuminated water show. The 40-metre-wide and 15-metre-tall water show over the lower lake is a spectacular visual feast, featuring the beloved Christmas imagery of a giant Santa, Rudolf, Christmas tree and snowflakes. A magical and heart-warming show which will not be forgotten.
Lightopia is also incredibly excited to host the magical creatures from the BBC CBeebies TV programme, The Clangers. You will be able to meet these iconic, giant, furry and big-hearted characters, and the infamous Soup Dragon, who will be sharing their own brand of kindness with visitors from their especially reimagined neon-lit Clangers planet.
