The immersive festival experience will be unveiled on 3 February and enjoy a five-week residency. The London instalment will draw on the festival's 2,000-year heritage and combine lights, art, performances and cuisine.
The festival is to include a total of 50 lantern installations, which will interact with guests and immerse them in the world of Chinese culture. Highlights include a 66-metre long dragon, an eight-metre high porcelain Imperial Palace lantern and life-sized Terracotta Army. The Mount Huaguo lantern will be installed to celebrate the Year of the Monkey.
The Corrdiors of Light installation will lead guests into a series of different zones, including the Animal Kingdom - which features illuminated flamingos, zebras and elephants, an Enchanted Forest complete with a tree of life lantern and exploding flowers, an entertainment zone and food and gift market.
The festival is owned and managed by Weli Creative.
London recently played host to its first-ever light festival, Lumiere London, which proved so popular with visitors that particular installations were temporarily switched off for safety reasons.
