Leytonstone is presenting a series of magical pop-up lighting displays throughout December. Local artists, Greenaway and Greenaway, are working with the Council to create projections and light installations to bring life and joy into Leytonstone Town Centre this Christmas.
The Light Up Leytonstone switch on will be on Small Business Saturday, 5 December, and everyone is invited to explore the town centre and seek out the luminations.
Launching the light show will be the return the ephemeral iDEER2.0, allowing passers-by to glimpse the elusive Fallow Deer that roam across the town centre for the night. This builds on last year’s iDEER projection show, which was a much-loved addition to High Street ADVENTures in Walthamstow (see picture). This magical experience will allow people to reconnect with the majesty and wonder of the nature on their doorstep. Expect a surprise twist with iDEER 2.0!
Visitors will also spot some bespoke interventions in empty shops, which will host Future Festive Forms, a series of abstract light treatments celebrating sparkling festive symbols, in the form of projections and LED installations. Central to the show will be St John’s Church, that will be awash with colour throughout December.
