Pentalum Luminarium

bOing! preview for staff

Gulbenkian is inviting University of Kent staff to join them on Friday 25 August for a special preview event before bOing! International Family Festival on Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 August.

From 17.00-18.00 on Friday 25 August, Gulbenkian will be running FREE entry for University of Kent staff to Pentalum Luminarium, located on the field between Eliot and Rutherford, on a first-come first-served basis, subject to availability.

From the Guggenheim in Spain to the Sydney Opera House in Australia, the monumental and interactive walk-in sculptures – Luminariums – of Architects of Air and designer Alan Parkinson have astounded audiences across the globe. Enter a dazzling maze of winding paths and soaring domes where Islamic architecture and Gothic cathedrals meld into an inspiring monument to the beauty of light and colour and where visitors of all ages can happily lose themselves.
