Immersive Digital Art Installation ‘Tales from Woodlandia’ to Launch at Patterns in Brighton This Winter


Public Launch: Friday 4th November until February 2017

*Unless ticketed or private event – please see website for more info
Open Tuesday – Sunday (full opening times below)


Patterns, the iconic cocktail bar, music and culture venue on Brighton’s seafront will be offering customers the chance to get lost in an enchanting snowy forest this Winter, without leaving the comfort and warmth of the cosy venue.

Launching this November, Patterns invites you to step through a transformed mystical entrance, and discover an enchanted forest filled with nostalgic treats and immersive visual feasts inspired by Britain’s woodlands and the wild outdoors in Winter. The ground floor bar will be transformed into a winter wonderland reminiscent of scenes from The Chronicles of Narnia, brought to life by a multi-level digitally projected and interlinked forest, complete with softly falling snowflakes, inquisitive wild animals and scents of the forest air. Inside, you’ll find festive treats such a boozy hot chocolate menu and Hot Buttered Rum to enjoy as you watch a flock of birds fly around the room or a snow fox dart in front of you. Imagine watching the sunset from a discarded sofa in Narnia with a warming cocktail in hand, dancing amongst the swirling snow in the glow of a Victorian lamppost and you will be half way to Woodlandia!  There will also be a series of specially curated immersive events and workshops, inspired by the natural world.

Our digital forest has been created by Brighton based digital projection artist Thomas Buckley as an extended sequel to his two-day Digital Autumn project at The Brighton Dome during Brighton Digital Festival. Woodlandia will be in place for three months from early November to February, giving the installation time to evolve and grow with the seasons. Make sure you return after Christmas to watch our forest thaw and turn green with the first flushes of spring.
