A magical light installation is on display in Avenham Park.


As night falls, Luminous Birds by Kathy Hinde comes alive, using synchronised lighting and music to create the sensation of birds flying overhead.

Each bird is handmade using the traditional paper folding technique of Origami.

Preston’s Instagrammers have been taking to the platform to post photos of the installation.

A spokesperson for Visit Preston said: “The action of many birds, flocking together, is one of nature’s most amazing phenomena – an ultimate act of cooperation, hundreds moving forward in harmony.

“Luminous Birds creates a moment out of the ordinary, a magical experience for all the family, to be viewed after dark.”

The performance is taking place on the Riverside Walk in Avenham Park, next to the Pavilion. It’s running from 5pm to midnight each day, until Sunday 19 January.
