Artificial northern lights to fill the sky over the City of London

A free showing of an artificial ‘Borealis’ Northern Lights screen will fill the night sky over the City of London’s Guildhall next month with tickets released today.

The installation, by artist Dan Acher, uses light rays traveling through particle clouds to create the illusion that matches these images with a calm soundtrack.

The art exhibition will run between 11-22. December at 17.30 to 22.00, with tickets available for half an hour.

A total of 20,000 free tickets are available and you can request yours from here. A small number of tickets will be available at the entrance each evening and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

The installation is the new part of a London mayor announced “Winter Lights season”, which consists of events that have already been announced by other organizations.

This website has been running for a little over a decade now and although advertising revenue contributes to the financing of the website but does not cover the costs. Therefore, I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the cost of the website and time invested in writing and researching the news articles.

It’s very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller sites are now seeking to generate revenue in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it’s a one-time donation or a regular donor, any additional support will go a long way to cover the running costs of this website and keep you up to date with news and facts from London.

If you like what you read here, please support the website here.

thank you
