Harrogate 1571 - The Waters that Made Us
Harrogate is built on water. For one weekend each of the 36 wells in will be animated by a beacon of light shining directly into the night sky creating a dynamic and 3- dimensional aerial map. Fusing our spa history with the latest lighting technology through lighting installations designed by the artist James Bawn.
Whilst over 100 wells are set within Harrogate, Bogs Field in the Valley Gardens is the source of 36 unique mineral springs. A natural wonder of the world, where a greater number of unique mineral springs come to the surface than at any other known place on earth. The waters are Magmatic or Plutonic in origin, and never existed as rain, flowing deep beneath the earth for 20,000 years before surfacing through vertical shafts in the strata.
Each night the illuminations will be visible across Harrogate as they light up the sky in celebration of our Welcoming the World for this this momentous event!
Additionally a new scultpure will be unveiled in the Valley Gardens, casting light across Bogs Field in the form of words denoting our distinctive spa history.
