A sound and light public artwork by Luke Jerram, presented by Theatre Orchard
‘Lullaby’ by internationally acclaimed artist Luke Jerram – whose recent ‘In Memoriam’ installation was launched to great acclaim on Weston beach as part of Weston Arts + Health Week – will see streets serenaded by illuminated, locally decorated bikes that will bring a cycling spectacle and magical sounds to neighbourhoods in Worle and central Weston as evening falls.
It is the first artwork Luke has made specifically for children and young families to create a special experience in residential areas before bedtime, as the streets quieten and empty and dusk falls, to be enjoyed from the bedroom window or doorstep alike.
The free spectacle is delivered by members of the community with a fleet of decorated, illuminated bikes created to cycle through streets, twinkling in the evening light and bringing a night-time lullaby of ambient and serene music to people’s doors.
We are partnering up with Big Worle hub on Preans Green (28 November) and St Paul’s Church on Walliscote Road (27 November) and the routes will be in those areas, as below.
Both routes, led by experienced cyclists and overseen by marshals, will each cover around 6-7km and take approximately an hour. Participants bring along their own bikes on the night and gather at the starting points to decorate them with a bespoke Lullaby lighting kit, ready for the illuminated, community cycle.
There are still a few limited places left in each fleet for those who would like to take part. Participants need to be aged 18+, confident and proficient cyclists with roadworthy bikes and safety helmets. If you would like to experience this spectacle as a rider, we ask you to fill in this form for Worle and this form for Weston.
