Let’s Glow | 2024

Let’s Glow

As part of Basingstoke’s Let’s Glow event, we had the pleasure of transforming the town into an interactive light trail on behalf of Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council and Festival Place.

Festival Place

We transformed an empty retail unit into an interactive, sensory space where people of all ages could enjoy manipulating light and sound.

As guests entered the unit, they were met with a wall of LED video strips and two podiums fitted with sensors in the centre of the room. Using their hands and experimenting with different gestures, visitors could manipulate and generate visuals on the LED strips, and change the audio that could be heard in the space. 

Top of Town

Transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary, the light installations at the top of town included beams, uplights in trees, street projections, a rainbow roof, and a light display that turned the everyday into a whimsical display.

Willis Museum Light Show

Projections illuminated the Willis Museum, while lights bounced off a mirror ball taking centre stage. Lighting was synchronised to an upbeat soundtrack, allowing people to sing and dance along to the show.

War Memorial Park

Upon entering War Memorial Park, visitors were greeted by an illuminated playground for all ages, where four key areas brought the park to life: an immersive laser area, a photo-worthy fairy light tunnel, glow illuminations, and an original, interactive installation visible from miles around Basingstoke.

This bespoke, interactive installation involved a central octagonal structure with a silhouette of Basingstoke’s skyline painted by local artists around the base. Surrounding the large structure were eight interactive drum pads, which, when struck, changed the colour silhouetting Basingstoke’s skyline on the panel in front of you, while simultaneously firing high-powered lights into the night sky which could be seen from miles around.
