"Poetry in motion … with a steam punk touch." what a lovely description of the Pendulum Wave Machine from @Aberdeen @pressandjournal

We're here for #spectraABDN

They also said. "it is a lovely bit of simplistic steampunk-tinged art from Travelling Light Circus.

Suspended silver globes are set in motion creating wave-like patterns that shimmer and dance and even resolve themselves into a double helix DNA strand before coming to rest. It’s great fun."

In December 2020 Cartwheel arts commisioned a series of fire shows in Darnhill, Heywood to bring some joy at a time of continued Covid-restrictions. This sho...

Saw this last night at St Nicholas Church Nottingham as part of the citys' Light Night. Excellent set up, explanation and audience participation, made it one of my very favourite parts of the evening. Thank you for bringing science and art to life

Last night we were invited along to experience the Magical Woodland with the Travelling Light Circus at Blakemere Village. Oh my goodness it’s a must see. It was breathtaking. So beautiful. I’m amazed. From the moment you walk through the entrance, the canopy of twinkling fairy lights (my favourite) to the swinging pendulum and the imagination spiral (Georges favourite) to toasting marshmallows and let’s not forget the light show over the water to music & the Amber Wood (Mr H’s favourite). It was incredible as were the actors all around the track. I am still mesmerised. Tips: Take wellies or suitable footwear as it was very muddy. Have your camera ready. The marshmallows were so good. Be sure to go around the track more than once! And lastly go when it’s dark to get the full affects and don’t worry if it rains It’s the perfect October half term activity! A few photos for you... (Ad - gifted press trip)
Magical Woodland on now until November 3rd at Cheshire Outdoors!
