Come this December, we expect the South West to become a lot more bright and beautiful. Christmas lights will obviously fill our homes, streets and shops, but we never thought our skies would be receiving a glow-up. But keep an eye out for a ‘first-of-its-kind’ drone light show over Bristol this winter.
The drone light show company Celestial – the team behind this year’s Eurovision and London New Year’s Eve shows – will launch Evolution on December 20 & 21. Shining brightly over Gloucestershire County Cricket Club, this epic new drone light show promises to take audiences on a journey through time and space. Prepare for the whole family to be mesmerised.
The narrated story starts with the Big Bang, the explosive inception of the universe and journeys into the emergence of the sun, our solar system and the planets that inhabit it. The cosmic voyage, accompanied by an original cinematic soundtrack, will then guide viewers through the origins of conscious life on Earth. From the humble beginnings of single-cell organisms to the reign of the dinosaurs and the diverse tapestry of life on Earth today.
John Hopkins, Celestial co-founder & Chief Creative Officer comments: “Evolution has been three years in the making. This is so much more than a drone light show, it’s an experience with stadium scale, created to bring audiences together using a new medium to tell the story of time”.
Combining cutting-edge technology and creativity, Evolution will be a mesmerising feat. The event itself is suitable for the whole family and for all ages to enjoy. In addition to the main show, event-goers can revel in festive fun with fairground rides, music and a food village with local traders.
Neil Priscott, Chief Operations Officer, Gloucestershire County Cricket Club comments: “Bristol is home to many fantastic events and we’re so excited to be able to be a part of bringing something genuinely unique to our vibrant city!”
Tickets for this drone light show cost £14, with an early-evening show at 3pm and a late-evening show a 6.30pm, and can be purchased here.
