CANCELLED – just after I published the article, the event was postponed.

Canary Wharf’s annual winter lights festival will return later this month, running outdoors for a fortnight across the entire estate.

The free exhibition will feature over 20 installations, with favourites from previous years as well as new commissions and pieces that have never yet been shown in the UK. Highlights for this year include a life-size mammoth, a series of mirrored, luminescent pillars and a giant projection wall.

As you might expect, there will be a series of pop up food markets opening for the festival, and a range of special offers and discounts at some of the shops, bars and restaurants at Canary Wharf.

Canary Wharf’s Winter Lights festival will be free to visit and open from 5pm – 10pm daily, between Wednesday 19th January – Saturday 29th January 2022.

A map of the light displays will be available from here closer to the date, and they usually hand out copies at Canary Wharf. Otherwise, just look for the crowds.

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    I was just going to say it’s cancelled until next year. The line up looked great – was looking forward to it since November when I saw the line up 😩 so sick of covid
