Festival of Light

Bullring & Grand Central, Bullring, Birmingham, West Midlands, B5 4BU
Festival of Light


The Festival of Light is back this month as Bullring & Grand Central play host to the light exhibition between Friday 24th January until Sunday 2nd February.

The free event will transform the centre's outdoor spaces including Rotunda Square, St Martin's Walk and St Martin's Square into a dazzling light space containing five spectacular installations.

Birds Fly Around With You – Rotunda Square
An interactive light sculpture, which will enchant young and old. Enter the circle to activate the magical machine and watch the birds illuminate around you.

Neon Angel Wings – Rotunda Square
Created by renowned neon light artist, Carla O'Brien, this installation has been incredibly popular around the world providing a must-have photograph opportunity.

Pulse – St Martin's Walk
Walk through the series of loop structures as you journey towards St Martin's Church for a fully immersive experience complete with light and sound.

With Love – St Martin's Balcony
Watch this bright red inflatable heart beat in line with the city. This heart takes the pulse of its environment by sensing the light, the temperature and the atmospheric pressure, and translates it into flashing lights and heartbeat sounds.

Talk to the Skies – St Martin's Square
This interactive, collaborate light and sound installation will be a must-visit during the exhibition. See your voice converted into light and sound pulses that rocket across the ground and up into space.

Festival of Light will also form part of the centre's celebrations to mark Chinese New Year with events taking place in-centre on Saturday 25th January. Shoppers can follow the much loved lion and dragon procession through the centre and watch pop-up performances including traditional fan and umbrella dances. There will also be a special Wish Tree in Grand Central for shoppers and travellers to add their new year wishes to.

The Festival of Light takes place daily from 5pm.
