Immersive Light-Laser-Sound Extravaganza Event
One of Hammersmith & Fulham’s flagship parks, Ravenscourt Park will resonate to the sounds of especially chosen movie soundtracks sown together to create a unique soundscape, as a kaleidoscope of colour will soar across the skies when Fawkes Festival comes to town.
This unique Fawkes Festival bonanza combines a thrilling light-laser-sound spectacular with favourite film scores and classic movie music – all picked especially and sown together to create a sensational showcase.
“London’s Biggest Light & Laser Show”
The thrilling immersive light and laser display to music, plus sky trackers, flames and special effects is a spectacular alternative to fireworks, and is preceded by a range of exciting entertainment from funfairs, bars, catering, face-painting, marshmallows, hot chocolate and performers.
There will be showings at 6pm, 7pm and 8pm. Your ticket will give you access to the event all evening, so can enjoy the light-laser-sound show as many times as you like.
The perfect autumnal celebration event for the whole family.
NOTE: With this being a ticketed event, we open the doors early because it takes time to get everyone into the venue safely. If you are arriving early at doors opening time, you will have a long wait before the light and laser show starts, so remember to wrap up warm and come ready to enjoy the funfair and some hot food as you wait.
