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.

Fête des Lumières 2011 Lyon Light Festival  : GL events major partner

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.

You can also see us at:

  • The Hôpital Debrousse light-show: gradual flashing light like a night light
  • Passage Ménéstrier- "Eléphantastique": Sound, video and light show producing a larger than life elephant trapped in the "passage Ménestrier"
  • The North and South arches of the Fourvière tunnel: Technical fittings and solutions provided in a difficult environment, working in conjunction with the tunnel and road safety teams
  • The "Montée de la Grande Côte": A major production set-up to create the magic of children's dreams
  • Lighting up of the lounges of the City Hall and the Grand Staircase: work on site using crystal candelabras and highlighting historical features
