Luminary is a unique sound, light and projection event commissioned for Crossness Pumping Station to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Sir Joseph Bazalgette, the great engineer who built London's sewers.
Crossness Pumping Station is a Grade 1 listed building and features some of the most spectacular ornamental cast ironwork found in the world today. Nikolaus Pevsner described it as "a masterpiece of engineering – a Victorian cathedral of ironwork".
Luminary combines 3D laser scanning technology, video projection, sound and lighting effects to create an ethereal and immersive exploration of this iconic building.
The event is free but must be booked via Eventbrite. A free coach service running from Abbey Wood Station to the site can also be booked via Eventbrite.
