As part of Aston University’s forthcoming 50th anniversary celebrations, the first ever Lightfest will take place on the 25th September at the Library of Birmingham.

Researchers from the Aston Institute of Photonic Technologies are hosting lots of exciting demonstrations, workshops and public lectures, where you can play and learn about the wonders of the science of light!

We thought this really cool 3D street art (which will be on display on the day) brings to life the vastness of the wonderful world of photonics!
