New deal with internationally renowned lantern and light trail festival Lightopia

International media group and rights owner Coolabi has today announced a new deal with award-winning winter light festival Lightopia. For the first time ever, Lightopia Festival will host an installation with Coolabi’s BAFTA award-winning pre-school property Clangers at Crystal Palace Park this winter.

Taking place from the 17th November ‘22 – 2nd January ‘23, the festival will showcase an immersive, multi-sensory interactive light installation for all the family to enjoy.

The installation will feature the iconic Clangers family Mother, Major, Tiny, Small and Granny Clanger, plus their friends the Soup Dragon and Iron Chicken. Families will be able to see the iconic, kind-hearted characters, and their infamous friends at the spectacular, reimagined neon-lit Clangers planet.

The exciting new deal is a first for both Coolabi and Lightopia. Since 2019, Lightopia has been partnering with various parks and trusts to host the award-winning light festival, attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors to each location every year.

Inspired by the ancient Chinese lantern festivals, Lightopia combines handcrafted lanterns with new technology and creative approach.

Michael Dee, Director of Content at Coolabi Group comments: “We’re delighted to announce this new deal with Lightopia, and for Clangers to be the first licensed brand to join this internationally renowned light festival. The Clangers family has been brought to life in a new and enchanting way, creating a joyful experience where families can interact with the brand.”
