Fête des Lumières 2011: As a partner to this major Lyon event, GL events is once again at the heart of the 2011 Lyon Light Festival 2011 from 8 to 11 December.
Each year, on 8 December, the people of Lyon light up their windows with little lanterns as part of an age-old tradition. This act, which has spiritual origins, has become a massive, popular event: la Fête des Lumières (Light Festival).
As a partner to the event for many years, GL events will be involved in several attractions at the Fête des Lumières 2011, and notably the highlight of the festival, "Le chant de la Pierre" (Song of the stone) light and sound show at Saint Jean Cathedral.
GL events is in charge of producing the event and has called upon Daniel Kneeper, the famous artist from Strasbourg, to design a fairytale light-show on the Saint Jean Cathedral. This is the first show since the facade was renovated.
The facade will be completely lit up by 230 projectors placed in the Cathedral Square, the neighbouring streets and surrounding balconies and thanks to precise and intricate lighting, statues, ogives, doors, gables, and gargoyles will show the cathedral as it was centuries ago.
The GL events Group has also produced the architectural light-show for the gardens and Château of Saint Priest to accompany the wandering show laid on by "Les Quidams" troupe.
