Enchanted Wolverhampton

Landmarks in Wolverhampton will be transformed tonight by a light display, which will illuminate the city. It is all part of the 'Enchanted City' event, which starts this evening and culminates in a firework display on Sunday night.

Wolverhampton illuminated by Jubilee-style light show

A light display similar to the one used during the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations at Buckingham Palace has been used to transform Wolverhampton city centre.

The Enchanted City event started yesterday and used special light projectors to illuminate buildings around the city.

If all of this feels familiar, it is probably because the same technology was used during the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, when Buckingham Palace became a canvass for brightly coloured light displays.
