Illuminate Bath returns for the Jubilee weekend on 1-5 June 2012

We’re very excited to announce that we’re collaborating with Enlightened Lighting to create a series of projections on 1-5 June 2012 to celebrate the start of the Bath International Music Festival and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee .

Enlightened Lighting has been commissioned by Bath & North East Somerset Council to provide stunning lighting and visual effects on many of Bath’s key historic buildings over the long weekend.

The projections, lighting and visual effects will run for five evenings from Friday 1 to Tuesday 5 June 2012 from 10pm- Midnight and are free to attend.

The launch of the projections and illuminations coincides with “Party in the City”, a night of free music and events across Bath to mark the start of Bath International Music Festival on Friday 1 June.

  • Friday-Sunday features an intriguing and quirky mix of work by our Creative Director, Anthony Head, based on the themes of music and the jubilee.
  • Monday & Tuesday will be showing Paul Minott’s animated homage to Great British Queens.

Anthony Head and Graphic Designer Paul Minott are both lecturers in BA Graphic Communication at Bath Spa University.

Orange Grove, the Guild Hall and Bath Abbey Churchyard will also enjoy innovative lighting and projections as part of the celebrations.

Anthony Head, Illuminate Bath Creative Director said, “ We’re trying to do something a bit different, something you wouldn’t expect for Bath. I hope people will enjoy being surprised by the work as they walk around the city”.
