The Winter Lights festival features a range of spectacular light installations and interactive art created by artists across the globe.

Running between 5pm and 10pm every night until Saturday, January 27, the free event has something for everyone, whether you’re young or old, an art lover or a newcomer.

The exhibits are located throughout the Canary Wharf area, both inside and out, and are made as energy efficient as possible.

They include a sonic light bubble - a six metre installation that pulsates with light and sound when you touch it - and bit.fall, which creates words in a wall of water.
