London’s biggest eco- and pet-friendly alternative to fireworks will set the skies ablaze above Hammersmith and Fulham tonight, with a sensational new show marking this Guy Fawkes.
The 12 innovative Lights and Laser Spectacular shows at Ravenscourt and Bishops Parks are being staged over two nights during the Fawkes Festival, run in partnership with the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham.
Designed and produced by the team at GC Live and delivered by technical partners 21CC Group, the festival promises an action-packed, environmentally and animal-friendly evening for all the family.
Themed around ‘A Night at the Movies’, the shows feature a thrilling immersive light and laser display with sky trackers, flames and special effects all choreographed to a soundtrack of light- and laser-themed film scores and classic movie music.
The displays have been created by award-winning lighting designer Durham Marenghi, who worked on the late Queen’s Golden and Diamond Jubilee concerts and Olympic and Paralympic Ceremonies in Turin, Beijing, Sochi and Rio.
‘We have crafted a visually stunning show which is going to be mesmerising but without the perceived negative impact that fireworks can have on the environment and animals.
‘Creating the musical journey of the show has been a labour of love and one that will entrance the audience. It’s a unique new way to experience Guy Fawkes Night and a truly green alternative to traditional fireworks.’
Before and during the series of light shows, being held at both Ravenscourt Park and Bishops Parks on 03 and 04 November, spectators will be able to enjoy a range of exciting entertainment from funfair rides to catering, bubble performances, LED Stilt walkers, neon face painting, interactive experiences and more.
There will be three displays at the parks each evening, with the gates opening at 15.30 for visitors to enjoy the pre-show atmosphere, entertainment, food and drink.
The first show is scheduled for 18.00, the second at 19.00 and the final showcase at 20.00. Tickets cover full access to all showings and the park gates will close at 22.00.
‘We’re bringing Guy Fawkes into the modern day as a totally new, equally exhilarating experience. Although it still features all the fun and thrills of a traditional event, this is a sustainably focused version of a Guy Fawkes spectacular which echoes Hammersmith & Fulham’s environmental values and vision.’
