Presented By Loomaland


31 August - 3 September | Royal Victoria Dock

Duration: 8:15 pm - 11:15pm - 3 hours continuous loop

What to Expect: Family friendly | Kick back and relax | Sensory spectacle | Speech free


A regatta of 12 life-sized swans perform a poetic ballet on the surface of the Royal Victoria Dock.

Drifting on the still water as darkness falls, this mysterious and beautiful installation fuses robotics and romanticism, as incredible formations are formed against a wash of magical light, sound and music.

This event took place at Greenwich+Docklands International Festival 2023 and has passed.
