About Fire and Light

Fire & Light is back for it's 5th year with 2020 Visions!

Round off your Christmas and Hogmanay celebrations by experiencing a wondrous world of illumination and pyrotechnics, welcoming in the Year of Coasts & Waters with an illuminated, magical walk around the Helix Park and Kelpies.

2020 Visions is a myriad of interactive delights; a fusion of past and future where the audience transition from magical Victoriana to futuristic cyber-pagan technology, with ultraviolet face-painting, marshmallow toasting on open fires, tasty hot drinks and sweet treats to keep you warm. Explore the park and discover projections of magical creatures in the foliage to interactive characters and performances that seem to pop up out of nowhere. Father Time himself will make an appearance!

There will be places to contemplate and interact with resolutions, wishes and promises for the year ahead and reflect on your past and the deep shared history that brings us all together. The Helix Park will become home to an amazing array of performances and interactive installations featuring the very best circus and fire performers from across Scotland.

The Kelpies will be brought to life with music, light and fire. Fire jets will be choreographed to the powerful live performance of Taiko Drummers. When the drumming stops, an LED clad musician will perform on a spectacular laser harp.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Fire and Light are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
