Light Festival at Battersea Power Station

The annual free Light Festival is at Battersea Power Station this month, brightening up winter evenings between 19 January and 5 March 2023.

Eternal Sundown by Mads Vegas



Eight spectacular installations from international artists go on display both outdoors and inside the iconic Grade II* listed Power Station. Curated in partnership with Light Art Collection, the installations will be on display both outdoors and inside the iconic Grade II* listed Power Station.

The installations will be switched on from 8am until 11pm daily (with the indoor installations switching off at 10pm).

Artists include:

  • Atelier Haute Cuisine who have enlarged and illuminated an everyday object (a bath plug) to encourage people to consider the importance of clean water, society’s consumption and reducing how much water is wasted ‘going down the drain’
  • UK based Studio Vertigo use the nostalgic toy Slinky with the intention to see a city in a new playful way
  • the popular Eternal Sundown by Mads Vegas, using 140 energy-saving LED tubes to create a post-apocalyptic sunset along The Coaling Jetty with the Power Station as a backdrop.

Alongside the installations, stop for a drink or something to eat at the bars and restaurants now open at Battersea Power Station, as well as the food huts and trucks outside and on The Coaling Jetty.
