|Title||Festival of Light in Thornton Heath|
Trumble Gardens on Brigstock Road will be transformed into an illuminated wonderland at this first Thornton Heath Festival of Light, with pieces on display that will previously have been a part of the famous Lumiere event.
Performances on the evening will include spoken word, dance, and music.
For 2018 it returns over four nights between 18 and 21 January with works exhibited both north and south of the Thames. This time Covent Garden, Victoria, South Bank, and Waterloo have been added as new destinations – with Thornton Heath the final stop for parts of the show.
Lanterns from this work will transfer to the Thornton Heath light festival, including foxes, badgers, robins and squirrels alongside butterflies and giant flowers. In addition, the Croydon Partnership is backing a series of illuminated festoons made from recycled bottles that will form another part of the overall London spectacle before being brought home to Croydon.
The event will coincide with the second CR7 market, featuring arts & crafts along with food and drink stalls.
Festoons and other lighting will be used to decorate Thornton Heath on the weekend and huge mobile bird puppets will perform outside Ambassador House on the evening of 27th and in Croydon town centre on Friday 26th to help promote the event.
