Fairy Lights in Gothenburg Sweden, transform an ordinary street into a magical space attracting big crowds at night. How do you make something beautiful? You decorate it. How do you create a warm, inviting space? You light it up creatively.
The Lake Geneva Tree and Light Festival in Switzerland attracts artists from all over Europe. A big highlight is the ‘best tree’ competition when the public is invited to vote. So how about our very own Colonel Light competition each year?
Imagine the crowds, walking up and down the river, and around the parks, to view the illuminated trees and place their vote! Solar lighting means it’s an environmentally-friendly project. What’s more, how about ridding Hindley Street of traffic, turning it into a pedestrian mall and decorating the whole retail strip – from East Terrace to Light Square – with pretty trees to transform the entire avenue into a magical light show at night. Colonel Light would be very pleased!
