What’s On
Bathe in Light and Birdsong!
4 Jan - 29 Jan | 10:00am - 6:00pm

One of the City of London’s oldest marketplaces, Leadenhall Market, is putting on a display of mood-boosting installations this January to give Londoners a muchneeded uplift in what will be a difficult start to the year.  


City Of London

In stark contrast to the usual sounds of London’s Square Mile, birdsong will be played throughout the Market, Monday to Friday between the hours of 10am and 4pm, while the light bathing spots aim to enlighten people on how colours can affect their mood.

The installation forms part of the Market’s ‘wellness month’, which aims to help locals kickstart their year with a healthy mindset and lifestyle, which includes getting a daily dose of fresh air. Special walking routes that go via the Market have been designed to inspire people to make the most of their outdoor exercise, by exploring parts of the city that would usually, particularly at this time of year, be buzzing with workers, visitors and residents.

With the sound of birdsong and special light-bathing spots to be enjoyed, Leadenhall Market is transforming its unused units and quieter alleys into an uplifting experience for Londoners to enjoy safely, while out for their daily exercise.
