Carnival! A sound and light show

As darkness falls, the lions begin to prowl! The Neo-classical facade of the university’s Senate House will be illuminated with stunning images of creatures large and small as part of our sound and light show, produced by the award-winning creative agency, Novak. The Kanneh-Mason family’s award-winning recording of Saint-Saens’ Carnival of the Animals provides the soundtrack for a spectacular projection created using artwork produced by pupils from Castle, Arbury, St Matthews and Galfrid primary schools during workshops led by community artist Hilary Cox-Condron. Gather to watch the lions, the fish and the swan as they are brought to life through digital animation.
