As part of the York 800 celebrations, Vic Reeves Wonderland will be York’s largest Illuminating York Festival yet according to York City Council.

 

Artist Vic Reeves has been given a free reign to unleash his absurd and magical creations in the centre of York, with York Museum Gardens being transformed into a ten acre magical wonderland including three large scale projections, say the council. 

 

Supported by the City of York Council, Arts Council England, York Museums Trust, Blackpool Council and Visit York, they say this year’s festival once again uses cutting edge technology and over £500,000 worth of lighting technology to celebrate York’s rich heritage and challenge visitors to see York in a different light. 

 

The Council say that in addition to three very different large scale projections on the Yorkshire Museum, the ruins of St Mary’s Abbey and the back of part of the City Walls, the entire ten acres of York Museum Gardens will be transformed into a Wonderland with elements such as the ‘Wild Wood’ full of lights and surprises, there will be magical bikes that when pedalled create their own light and movement as well as many more fantastic creations as part of Illuminating York.
