Global Rainbow

When? 18 Nov 2021 to 20 Nov 2021
Where? Poole

  • Global Rainbow

For three days in November, the night sky above our coastal region will be transformed by Global Rainbow, a monumental outdoor laser installation by American artist Yvette Mattern. Seven rays of laser light representing the colour spectrum of a natural rainbow will illuminate the night sky.

Beaming direct from Lighthouse with its origin on our roof, the lasers will be visible across the BCP area as it heads out toward Hengistbury Head and beyond. The lasers will extend over 35 miles and you can take in the best view of the Rainbow by standing directly underneath and letting the beams soar overhead. You will also be able to find viewing points along the Rainbow’s trajectory. There will be an opportunity to stand under the source of the Rainbow at Lighthouse’s outdoor amphitheatre, too.

Global Rainbow has been presented around the World from Toronto to Tokyo and now it’s Poole’s turn to be cemented on the map as a centre for cultural excellence. Global Rainbow signals our resilience and re-emergence from the dark days of 2020, bringing our BCP community together and giving us all hope for the future in a truly spectacular fashion.
