Lightopia’s Palace of Light will be a place of awe; Enjoy a 2km trail of illumination, including 22 breath-taking trees symbolising unity and growth, come to life through the power of light and human connection.
Lightopia at Crystal Palace features an incredible range of displays including a 10-meter-long Phoenix set on 50,000 square feet of lights and animatronic and digitally projected dinosaurs installed along the famous dinosaur park. Each lantern within the light display is handmade and hand-painted using traditional Chinese methods originating in the Tang dynasty.
The hero piece of the event is seeing the famous Crystal Palace reborn in light. The 40 meter long and 12-meter-tall Palace of Lanterns was created by Lightopia with 3D mapping projection.
Crystal Palace Park is a hugely historical and inspiring London landmark, famous for its story of innovation, as well as becoming the world’s first-ever theme park. To this day, the park offers everything from education to entertainment and is a pillar for the local community.
