A unique opening of Telford 50 anniversary year is planned by international laser artist Dal Badial.
As LIGHT is a key theme of Telford 50 (a symbol of celebration reflecting the borough’s bright future), the year will start with a laser art installation by the artist, that traverses the borough and connects communities on its path to the Wrekin – representing how the 50th anniversary will connect people and places in the borough.
The lasers will originate from seven different locations in the borough, converging on the top of the Wrekin - the borough’s highest landmark, from up to 10 miles away.
The laser installation will run on New Year’s Day and 2 January from 5pm until 10pm.
