For some, Architects of Air’s Luminariums are at their best when full of children marvelling at the wonders inside. For others, our Grown-Ups Only Session allows you to enjoy the colourful domes and surprising structures in the sole presence of other adults.

Architects of Air have toured to more than 40 countries across five continents with their extraordinary structures which astonish and delight audiences of all ages. Inspired by Islamic architecture and gothic cathedrals, each luminarium is an intriguing shape, with interiors that are brilliantly iridescent and a maze of dazzling and unexpected spaces.

Wheelchair accessible, 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.

Please note: Parking during the Wheee! Festival is extremely limited. Please see our travel page for alternate ways to visit us.
