Enfield Winter Lights

FAO: All Schools / All Phases

The first Enfield Winter Lights launched this February! It is a month-long cultural event that brings local and national artists’ work to our streets for amazing art displays that will delight our communities and support our town centres.

We are welcoming our community back to our high streets with Enfield’s Winter Lights Festival from 3rd February until 9th March 2022 to showcase Enfield’s creativity and heritage and lighten up the dark evenings.

Enfield Council have partnered with local creative business Artist Hive Studios to deliver this exciting event to encourage the public to visit the many local shops, restaurants and businesses that our borough has to offer. The festival consists of a series of exciting large-scale art installations, workshops and exhibitions that will illuminate our town centres: Angel Edmonton, Enfield Town, Palmers Green and Southgate. This festival is supported by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities’ (DLUHC) Welcome Back Fund, established through a grant from the European Regional Development Fund (EDRF).

The month-long festival features work from 6 prominent local and UK-based artists who will deliver tailored experiences in each of the town centres. Join us and immerse yourself in these playful and unexpected installations; including a mesmerizing light projection by Claire Luxton, an immersive neon light garden by Eve De Haan that is travelling to a variety of locations and a luminescent sculpture by local artist Mark Beattie. In addition, local artists will uplift our high streets further with transformative installations that will activate vacant shops and connect local businesses. A curated art trail will be viewable night and day on billboards in seventeen locations across our borough during the month, and there are a range of creative workshops including lamp shade making in Southgate and neon painting at the Culture Palace.
