Luma at #LightUpCastle

Luma at #LightUpCastle

How often is it that you get to meet a big, beautiful, glowing snail?

We’re so excited to be bringing the glorious Luma by Air Giants to Newcastle BID’s Christmas Lights Switch On #LightUpCastle on Sunday 26 November.

Luma is a nine-metre-long snail who loves an audience. Her presence as she looms above visitors is gentle, welcoming and otherworldly. ​Luma is a joyful and hopeful work which champions both nature and technology, and reimagines what robots can be for!

See Luma outside Caffe Nero on Ironmarket, Newcastle-under-Lyme from 1pm to 7.30pm.
