Wheee! Architects of Air Luminarium
Architects of Air's UK premiere of Luminarium 'Katena'
**Please Note**LUMINARIUM UPDATE: We are close to selling out of tickets for the luminarium today. We advise those planning to visit that do not already have tickets that it's unlikely there will be any availability by the time you reach us. However, should the queue move more rapidly than expected, there is the potential for tickets to go back on sale after 4pm. Please call the Box Office on 0115 846 7777 at 4pm to check if this is the case. If you do already have tickets, please be aware that we're expecting long queues and wait times for entry to the luminarium. We apologise for any inconvenience and hope that you'll bear with us.
This Nottingham-based, world-wide touring organisation, is coming home to launch their brand new structure Katena at Nottingham Lakeside Arts. Architects of Air produce extraordinary structures which must be experienced to be believed.
Externally intriguing in shape, their interiors are wondrously full of luminosity and iridescence, and are enjoyed by everyone from babes in arms to nonagenarians!
Wheelchair accessible, registered disabled carers attend free. Parents/carers of visitors with autism/registered disability who may experience difficulty queueing please let us know at the ticket sales point.
Visits at peak times 15 minutes.
Suitable for all but please note that under 16s should be accompanied by an adult.
LIVE AMBIENT MUSIC from Pete Challoner Saturday 28 May, Saturday 4 June & Thursday 2 June (adult session)
***NOTE ABOUT QUEUES***
The luminarium is a hugely popular attraction. Due to health and safety precautions, we can only admit a certain number of people to the luminarium at any one time. This means that, especially during peak times, queues are likely. We have attempted to alleviate this problem by offering a certain amount of timed entry slots which may be booked in advance and limiting duration of visits to fifteen minutes at peak times. Box Office will be able to advise you of waiting times when you collect your tickets. We have an additional member of staff who will be available to people waiting in the queue who can also advise. We apologise for any inconvenience.
