Takeshita street in Tokyo has to be one of the cutest streets in the world with stores brimming full of pink, fluffy objects. We spotted Tooti Candy Factory creating gigantic multicoloured candy floss. It was a rather impressive, UFO looking light, airy cotton, infused with delicious mango and strawberry flavours through each layer. Cotton candy has come a long way from fairgrounds and now much of an art form; a perfect addition to any event.
Windsor Illuminated sees Savill Garden beautifully lit up by night. It is so magical, and not to be missed. The music is regal as you approach a twinkly castle of lights. As you walk through the illuminated woodland each area has it’s own unique charm. The fairy trail was one of our favourites and the little one was mesmerised by the tiny little fairies, floating in bubbles. As the paths wind round, you are quickly immersed into flashing lights and there is a noticable change in tempo.With a skip in our step, we arrived at the Fairy disco. With “Dancing Queen” blaring, sparkling disco balls, smoke effects, and fairies flying, it really was special. As we got deeper into the woods, there were wonderful projections of animals to be marvelled over. The projections into the water fountains were absolutely stunning. With reindeers and Santa Claus amongst the fantastic projections, we loved standing back to watch this over the water in Windsor Great Park. Walking through the tunnel of flashing lights was surreal. The dazzling lights spiral and circle around you as you walk through. One of the best things about winter walks is the heartwarming food. We stopped to toast marshmallows and […]

Frameless, London redefines art in the most unimaginable way. It exceeded all expectations and was a truly mind blowing experiencing. Gone are the days of dragging bored kids around an art gallery. Instead kids can be heard pleading with parents to stay a bit longer at this immersive, multi dimensional experience. It’s an unforgettable experience for the whole family. People can be seen appreciating the art in their own unique ways ways. Some people sat in a trance like state, others stood back, gazing up in awe. Others were lying down, caught up in the moment. Whilst children could be seen dancing through the digital art, to the sound of the music, it was clear every single person visiting was truly mesmerised. Frameless is like stepping into what one would imagine Vincent’s Van Gogh’s dreams would have looked like.

Frameless is a multi-sensory experience where traditional art has been brought to life. The birds are flying off of the paintings, there’s time in motion with Salvador Dali’s most famous piece […]
