Wembley Park is hosting Winterfest – a free winter festival where the neighbourhood is transformed into an immersive winter playground, through a trail of specially commissioned, site-responsive and touring light and sound installations.
Straight from Nevada’s Burning Man festival, experience ‘Sonic Runway’, the acclaimed multisensory installation based on Californian artists Rob Jensen and Warren Trezevant observations of the effects of sound at Burning Man in 2002.
Music ripples down a 100-metre corridor of 32 concentric rings on Olympic Way, triggering kaleidoscopic patterns of light that move at the speed of sound.
Boxpark Wembley will host an after-party to launch Winterfest, where you’ll be able to enjoy 20 street food vendors and a whole floor of entertainment including the newly opened Zero Latency, the world’s first free-roam virtual reality e-gaming arena, and the UK debut of Bad Axe, a US-based urban axe-throwing experience in its first international expansion.
Wembley Park will also be home to London’s tallest-ever LED Christmas tree, ‘The Hopeful Tree’.
The 25- metre conical structure is illuminated by over 100,000 low-energy coloured lights, located on Wembley Park Boulevard.
