The gigantic china clay pit at Wheal Martyn is forming the canvas for a laser show – the centrepiece of an after-dark event to transform the landscape with light.

For three evenings in December, lasers will draw animated illustrations inspired by our collection of objects from the china clay industry. The event will include a range of experiences using light and sound to explore the landscape and bring to life the heritage of the china clay industry.

A trail through Wheal Martyn will feature light used in a variety of ways, ranging from high tech laser lights to an installation of lanterns made by children using local clay.

Walk through an LED tunnel with projected patterns; a lighting and mirror installation will transform the museum’s waterwheel; UV bubbles will float by, and visitors will be able to play with light in the UV lounge – complete with sofa.

There are five bookable time slots per day for the laser show (Thursday 5th, Friday 6th and Saturday 7th December): 4.00pm, 4.30pm, 5.00pm, 5.30pm, 6.00pm.
