Saturday / 9-5pm / The Common
Saturday 22nd September will see an incredible site on Lindfield Common. Not only will the famous Pink Literary Tent be prominent on The Common but there will also be some amazing illusions to be explored.
The Playground of Illusions is a collection of 8 ‘giant toys’ that each contain a visual or auditory illusion. The toys are placed in an area that the audience are free to wander round and explore. Each illusion is self-sufficient and works brilliantly on its own, together they make an unforgettable and fascinating experience that is inspirational, educational and (most importantly) awesome FUN!
The design of the illusions is inspired by steampunk and a sense of playful invention –with levers to pull and wheels to turn, buttons to push and pedals to pedal. Vintage industrial machines are re-used to make the quirky gadgets, creating an intriguing visual spectacle that will draw visitors in and ignite their imaginations.
