The Springs to host Light Night Leeds installation

Oct 13, 2022

The Springs retail and leisure destination at Thorpe Park Leeds is lending unit space to showcase the work of local artist Holly Rowan Hesson.

As an established artist working in sculpture and installation responding to buildings, architecture and physical space, Holly is linking the installation to the forthcoming Light Night Leeds, now the UK’s largest annual arts and light festival taking place on 13th and 14th October.

The new pop-up display will be shown for one night only, on Thursday 13th October from 6pm until 9pm. It will be open for visitors to view free of charge from the outside of unit 37 adjacent to Caffe Nero.

Holly Rowan Hesson explains what visitors can expect to see in the display:

“The installation will use abstract photographs I make reflecting on my interest in colour in the built environment. Shown side by side on a pair of projectors, the large-scale colourful images will be the same on each projector but will run in different sequences at varying speeds so visitors may well experience a pair – hence the title of the installation, ‘Snap’, complimenting this year’s Light Night Leeds playful city theme.”

We are committed to supporting local talent but also keen to provide new and engaging attractions for visitors as part of the overall experience.

Rachel Vickers, Senior Commercial Manager at SGI, said:

“We are delighted to be able to lend space at The Springs to Holly.  The park is now very well established with most units occupied by leading brands.  It is part of our strategy to fill the remaining, smaller units to offer a more diverse experience for our visitors and at the same time support our local talent.  The pop-up concept is a great way to do this and bring something new to The Springs on a regular basis.”

The Springs Leeds is a 350,000 sq ft shopping and leisure attraction located at the heart of award-winning business destination, Thorpe Park Leeds.  Attractions include the UK’s first purpose designed ODEON Luxe cinema, Next, Boots, M&S, TK Maxx, H&M, Pure Gym, and many more.

Thorpe Park Leeds is strategically located with its own dedicated access at Junction 46 of the M1. More than 900,000 sq ft of office space is already built, supporting over 5,500 jobs. The ongoing new development at Thorpe Park Leeds was enabled following a unique £162 million investment deal with Legal & General Capital in 2015. Since then, a transformational 1.35 million sq ft mixed-use expansion, with Grade A offices has progressed, bringing a plethora of exceptional new business opportunities to the Leeds City Region.
