Enchanting audiences around the world from the Guggenheim in Spain to the Sydney Opera House in Australia, the awe-inspiring Amococo Luminarium, will be a sensational centrepiece on Bournemouth’s seafront from 5th – 8th September. Making its second only UK appearances this year, this exciting world-renowned visual art installation offers a fun and captivating sensory experience of light, colour and sound for all the family to enjoy.

Located at The Waterfront at Pier Approach, this giant 10 metre high inflatable walk-in interactive sculpture features five soaring domes, 71 pods and is half the size of a football pitch! Having been compared to a spaceship, womb, cathedral and a dream, it offers a dazzling maze of winding paths, and cavernous domes which transport visitors into a wonderland of light and colour where they can happily lose themselves for a while.

Inspired by Islamic Gothic Cathedrals, modern architecture and natural shapes, Amococo is designed for everyone from babies and toddlers to children, teenagers and adults. Visitors are invited to wander around, sit or lie down and relax while taking in the vivid reflections of colour which spill across the cornered walls to create a magical world apart from everyday life.

The atmosphere inside this spectacular arts experience alters according to the changing weather and light outside, so no two visits are ever the same. Great for children, Amococo has an energising and mesmerising effect, and a calming one for adults.

This must see lumimarium experience is open from 1pm to 7pm on Thursday and Friday and from 12pm to 6pm on Saturday and Sunday, so that people of all ages have a chance to explore inside this unique kaleidoscope of light.

Don’t miss out on this fantastic one-of-a-kind experience, it is FREE for under 16s and entry costs just £2 for over 16s. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. Group visits are welcome, and it has proven to be a brilliant environment for people with disabilities, parent and baby groups and visits from nursery and pre-school groups. It also has full wheelchair access.
