Gather the family at the Village Green North to dive into the visually stunning subject of illumination at LIGHT PLAYGROUND. Everyone’s invited to explore this dazzling interactive installation. LIGHT PLAYGROUND consists of three modified shipping containers, each featuring a different play space that encourages the concept of experimenting with light, and is perfect for kids and families.

Giant Light Bright is like an over-sized black pegboard, backlit by a cool LED light source – its sheer size will instantly inspire creativity in kids and adults alike. With a bundle of colourful translucent acrylic pegs at their disposal, visitors can create an unlimited combination of patterns and colour ways.

Light Bubble Forest is a sensory experience that mesmerises and soothes participants of all ages and abilities. Its clear, illuminated 1.5m high columns are filled with a liquid that creates thousands of bubbles that flow upwards and slowly change colour as they ascend. Children will also have the chance to get hands-on with smaller bubble games that create amazing patterns as they are manipulated and illuminated on bright light tables.

Glow in the Dark Illumination showcases the glow of black light luminescence. Using items such as Post-It Notes, neon sticker dots and highlighter markers, families can make artworks that may seem ordinary in the daylight, but will amaze and delight under the special black lights and photo luminescent vinyl inside the container.

LIGHT PLAYGROUND will flicker to life from Thursdays to Sundays for the duration of Vivid Sydney (6pm until 9pm nightly, free of charge).
