Step into a magical world of light, colour and sound this winter and discover Light Organ at Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

Visit the historic Chapel to experience this joyful and interactive artwork that brings sound to life with mesmerising colours and patterns of light. Sing, talk and clap into the microphones to activate a series of 40 large pipes that will transform the noises you make into a sculptural display of colourful, glowing lights. Try different sounds, volumes and movements to create your own light and sound experience and light up those dark winter days.

Light Organ is the collaborative invention of local artists Akeelah Bertram, Adam Glatherine and creative technologist Simon Fletcher.

Light Organ was created for Bradford Cathedral in 2021, and in 2022 it was a focal point of Leeds Light Night, illuminating Leeds Art Gallery’s Central Court.

This November, Light Organ will transform YSP’s Chapel, illuminating the Winter season with an interactive and accessible artwork for everyone to enjoy. Come and make noise and see your sound transformed.

To celebrate Light Up Wakefield, a limited number of free YSP entry tickets are available for residents of Wakefield Council districts between 17-19 November (inclusive). Proof of Wakefield address will need to be shown on entry. Book your entry tickets online or contact us for more information.

General admission tickets for non-Wakefield residents can be purchased online.

Supported with a Culture Grant by Wakefield Council, as part of Light Up Wakefield 2023 and Our Year – Wakefield District 2024.
