Visit Blackpool


Monday 14 – Saturday 26 October (Olympia in the Winter Gardens)

Sun, a new installation by artist Alex Rinsler, is a 7m sphere with NASA projections of the sun's outer surface projected from the inside. The result is a creative and dynamic 360˚ experience.

A world first, the work is sponsored by Access Fylde Coast. The festival team will work in partnership with Professor Robert Walsh from the University of Central Lancashire to provide educational sessions for schools.

The work has been created in partnership with the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), Bluedot Festival and The UK Association for Science and Discovery Centres. With supporting partners Culture Liverpool and Liverpool Cathedral.’
