If you werenâ€™t fortunate enough to experience last monthâ€™s light festival in London (called Lumiere), weâ€™ve got good news:Â now though 6 March you can bask in the glow of the Magical Lantern Festival in Londonâ€™s Chiswick House and Gardens. The installation celebrates the Chinese New year and will stimulate your senses not only through light but a wide variety of international cuisine as well.Â Why should you venture out on a blustery evening to see some little red paper orbs lit up from the inside out?? Because these are not those lanterns. These are extraordinary sculptures of elephants and peacocks, dragons and baby pandas frolicking in bamboo sticks, even a multi storey house complete with windows and stairsâ€” and they are all lanterns.
The aptly named festivalâ€” for light is, indeed, magicalâ€” indicates the continued importance of luminescence in our lives. We crave itâ€™s power to energize, comfort, heal, soothe and to elevate any event to another level entirely.Â
ACA Live harnesses the power of light for its clients, transforming events into magical experiences with their expert use of lighting and set design.

The Magical Lantern Festival is definitely the way to light up the cold dark winter nights!
