Make it a New Year to Remember!

Round off your Christmas and Hogmanay celebrations with an illuminated, magical journey around The Helix: Home of The Kelpies.

This year’s theme for the popular Fire & Light show is 2020 Visions – bringing a fusion of past, present and future to Falkirk as part of Visit Scotland’s Year of Coasts & Waters.

Take a 4km walk to see the Kelpies brought to life with music, light and fire, as The Helix Park becomes home to an amazing array of interactive experiences - featuring the very best artists, musicians and performers from across Scotland:

  • Mugenkyo Taiko drummers are at the forefront of the art-form of taiko drumming, breaking boundaries with their innovative performances.
  • PyroCeltica work with fire to offer you a warm welcome for a brand-new year.  Scottish themed music, costumes, dance, circus and theatre melded together in flames. 
  • Theremin Hero is the stage persona of software engineer and professional geek, Greig Stewart. A Britain’s Got Talent Semi-Finalist and world-renowned Laser Harp player.
  • David Banks (Ukemi) is a Glasgow based artist and movement specialist who aspires to reclaim cities and reduce inequality through community arts and performance.
  • Jacob Steed is a fashion designer who captures the simple essence of movement as mesmerising sensation for both the wearer and the viewer.
  • David Powell is a maker in steel and willow, inspired by landscape form and place. He creates time-based performance works and sculptural constructs of abstract and figurative form.
  • Lucy O Higgins is an eco- artist working in various media. She has developed methods of working with single-use plastics to create fun, bold and thought-provoking pieces.
