Christmas Light Festival

17 November - 19 November

Students and artists with their completed designs

We are delighted to announce OVADA’s commissioned artists for the Christmas Light Festival wayfinding project as Liberty Rocks. The artists have been working with students from the City of Oxford College to create signage for this year’s Christmas Light Festival which runs from 17 – 19 November 2017. The wayfinding structures will be positioned around Oxford to help audiences navigate the city and festival activities, which includes a spectacular lantern parade, a festive market on Broad Street and installations at Oxford Castle and the newly opened Westgate Oxford.

The artists have been working with students who are studying Furniture Design and Making to create original pieces that respond to the individual locations across Oxford city centre and interact with visitors to the Christmas Light Festival. Students have gathered a wealth of material during their site-visits, including photos, sketches, tales from local residents and research into the history of each location  Follow project progress HERE.

Look out for the wayfinders in the following locations: Oxford Castle, Westgate Oxford, Carfax, Broad Street and Gloucester Green!
