As the dark draws in, the Southbank Centre lights up with its annual Winter Light celebration. 

This year visitors to the Queen’s Walk can look forward to a wide range of free outdoor artworks from contemporary artists that play with light and colour, including five brand new works for 2023.

Regular Winter Light favourites that return once again this year include David Ogle’s fluorescent tree light canopy Loomin, David Batchelor’s glowing chromatic roof installation Sixty Minute Spectrum, and Jokob Kvist’s glimmering Dichroic Sphere (always a popular photo op spot!).

New installations this year include a collection of winter-themed neon shapes at the Queen Elizabeth Hall designed in collaboration with Year 6 students from the nearby Oasis Academy Johanna and Marinella Senatore’s large-scale decorative light sculpture We Rise by Lifting Others.
