Winterfest at Wembley Park

4:00pm – 10:00pm

Wembley is being transformed into an illuminated, immersive winter light trail, featuring 12 light and sound installations by artists from all over the world. One of the main draws is the Sonic Runway, which has travelled all the way from lighting up the Nevada desert skies of Burning Man festival. Now north west London will be surrounded by it’s multi-sensory rings and patterns.

Visitors can also gaze upon the The Hopeful Tree while pondering their hopes and wishes for the year ahead. It’s London’s tallest ever LED Christmas tree, and is illuminated with over 100,000 lights.

Winterfest will also feature Ilumaphonium:Halo, which will transform Webmbley Market square into an interactive, sensory playground. A series of interlinked lights make touch-activated sounds for some impromtu music making that let’s face it, is is the closest most of us will get to playing Wembley.

Tickets for the big switch-on have sold out for 20 November, but Winterfest is totally free to visit and runs until 3 January 2020.
