Light the Way

This event has finished Took place on: Saturday, 27th Nov 2021

 Free

Light the Way will feature Lesnes Abbey being illuminated along with a community sound artwork within the ruins, beautiful light installations along a walking path from Lesnes Abbey, along Abbey Way to Southmere Lake and at the Lakeside Centre.

Local artists taking part include Miyuki Kasahara, who will be hosting a creative lantern-making workshop; Jackson Payne, whose audio-visual holograms will be dispersed amongst the trees and shrubbery by the lakeside; Nathalie Coste whose two installations include ‘Instafrost’, an illuminated sculpture made of willow and reclaimed parachutes, inspired by the damaging effects of climate breakdown on permafrost; and TUG, produced by local artists Debo Adegoke, Alex Tuckwood and Lisa Cheung, which will see floating sculptures pulled along by radio-controlled tug boats around Southmere Lake.

Visitors can look forward to seeing ‘The Hourglass’, a four-metre-high sculpture which aims to connect audiences with the idea that we are all ‘one world and one people’; and handcrafted, oversized roses that will line the entrance to Lesnes Abbey.

In addition to the light installations there will be interactive workshops, storytelling and music, as well as food and hot drinks available from the Chestnuts Kiosk at Lesnes Abbey and The Y on the Lake, Thamesmead’s newest cafe at the Lakeside Centre.
