VIBRANT colours and ghostly images danced across the Royal Pavilion as the landmark was illuminated for the Brighton Festival.

As part of the Dr Blighty installation, which has taken over the grounds of the Royal Pavilion Estate, the city centre palace was illuminated with a myriad of bright colours and images produced by QED.

The installation is a collaboration between the Brighton Festival and cultural programme marking the Great War’s centenary 14-18 Now.

It features actors, video projectors, and soundscapes inspired by letters the soldiers wrote back home.
