"FANTASTIC "wall art which has donned Edinburgh Castle and other famous buildings throughout the world is set to make it’s way to Ulverston.

Tonight Double Take Productions from Scotland will arrive in the town to light up the wall at the end of New Market Street.

The hugely popular artwork coincides with the first of the town’s late night shopping events.

Wall art is a projection of a picture or video onto buildings, giving a unique visual effect.

Projection mapping is unlike any other artwork.

It merges real-world environments with extraordinary displays of light and motion.

Large-scale projection-mapping creations can leave people stunned and amazed with the huge artwork beamed on buildings.

Michelle Scrogham, event organiser for Ulverston Bid, hopes the wall art will be a success.

She said: “It is the Dickensian Festival who has put it together.

“It is to celebrate their 20-year anniversary and they want to put something special together.

“We have teamed up with Double Take Productions, who are based in Scotland.”

She added: The first projection will be falling poppies to commemorate the First World War.

“After that, there will be several pictures projected showing the great history of Ulverston.”

The light spectacular will run throughout the festive period before finishing on December 23.

The launch on tonight will feature music and mulled wine to get locals into the Christmas spirit.

Michelle said the local people will take to the artwork and she hopes to look at creating more projections across other buildings.

She said: “All the local businesses are up for it because it links well with the late night openings.

“Building projections are extremely popular and I am hoping that it creates the same buzz in Ulverston town centre.

“The Ulverston Bid has put in a big chunk of money and I am hoping people will come out support the town centre and see the wall art as an added bonus.”
