Spiral of Lights

Our incredible Spiral of Lights enthralled over 170,000 visitors as The Spiral Tree, decorated with huge silver baubles and hanging decorations to make a spectacular interactive Christmas Tree. Since then, we have turned the Spiral into different forms, taking it to indoor and outdoor events around the UK, delighting audiences young and old.

Our incredible Spiral of Lights was originally commissioned by Kew Gardens, where it enthralled over 170,000 visitors, as The Spiral Tree, decorated with huge silver baubles and hanging decorations to make a spectacular interactive Christmas Tree. Since then, we have turned the Spiral into different forms, taking it to indoor and outdoor events around the UK, delighting audiences young and old.

All 6,000 LEDs are controllable by the public, with some very cool consoles, built with a Steampunk inspired look about them. Think Jules Verne, think time machine, think Spiral of Lights!

One controller changes the colour - pull the old beer pumps to add red, green and blue, then hit the button in the middle to send your chosen colour to the lights. Loads of fun, but also teaches people about RGB colour mixing, so it hits STEM or STEAM themes too!

The pattern chooser, that looks like it would navigate a Journey to the centre of the Earth!

Spiral of Lights is a great example of our ability to engineer a hard-wearing, audience-proof piece of interactive art. It has enraptured audiences of all ages across the country and makes a fantastic addition to any light night or after dark event. And of course, if you have a Christmas event, we can return it to its original Christmas Tree form - an 11-metre tall piece of stunning interactivity!

The video below shows you just how the combination of colour and pattern changing truly enthrals people. It works just the same when it’s a ‘flat’ spiral, just flatter!

Interactive Installations

Here at Travelling Light Circus we are proud to think of ourselves as a bunch of big kids! We love to have fun, play and sometimes be a bit silly - and we believe that is great way to be. So with this ethos in mind, we have invented some amazingly cool 'big toys' that will release the inner child of everyone, no matter what their real age.
