Portsmouth Festivities is back for 2016

Portsmouth Festivities are thrilled to have commissioned purveyors of high quality public art, Luxmuralis to create the world premiere of a unique multi projection, open-air light display spectacular inspired by this year’s electric theme, incorporating sound and illuminations onto two of Portsmouth’s most historic venues.

logoLuxmuralis is a collaborative team combining artists from different backgrounds and artistic disciplines led by lead artist and Artistic Director, Peter Walker. Creating works across multiple media and prevention formats, Luxmuralis work with a variety of different clients from Councils to Corporate alongside developing and generating ad hoc and individual works of art.

The primary purpose of Luxmuralis is to take art onto the streets and provide access to visual artwork in public as well as unexpected places.

Director of Festivities Erica Smith says: “I am so looking forward to seeing the Royal Garrison lit up at night; Artists Luxmuralis have a real treat in store for Portsmouth Residents. This event is at the heart of our Electric themed Festivities this year and this is not to be missed.”

Join Luxmuralis in bringing Electric Art to the city in these one off events. Watch out for light tags in and around the city in the build up to Festivities. The events are free and takes place on 17th June 9.45pm outside Portsmouth Cathedral and also 18th June 9.45pm outside the Royal Garrison Church. Book your ticket online or call 023 9282 8282

Portsmouth Festivities are very grateful to English Heritage for allowing the use of the Royal Garrison Church, and are very proud of its long standing relationship with Portsmouth Cathedral.
