Wembley Park’s Magical Winter Light Festival Has Returned For Christmas 2021

Winterfest, Wembley Park’s beautiful immersive winter light trail, was a lovely addition to the capital in 2019, and after a year off due to the pandemic, is blessing us with a 2021 return.

Following the successful run in 2019, Winterfest is launching once more on November 25, bringing back a dazzling array of artworks that combine lights, sound and touch to create an incredible, multi-sensory experience. Best of all, Winterfest is entirely free to visit! The theme this year is “Reunited In Light”, celebrating society regaining the ability to interact with one another again. A light installation, from the collective Kumquat Lab, of the name “Reunion” is also set to fill Market Square, and the centrepiece “Reflections of the Future” is coming from Lucid Creates.

Winterfest’s return is to be marked by flicking the lights to their giant LED Christmas tree — the tallest in London, no less! Following this will be a roster of interactive events and models, which will be just the tonic after last year’s (lack of) Christmas.

A wander around Winterfest certainly won’t be short of Instagrammable moments when it finally returns to town!

The Wembley Park Winterfest kicks off on November 25 and runs until January 4. It will be free to enjoy. More info here.
