Light and colour installation comes to intu Victoria Centre to boost shoppers’ moods


“intu Victoria Centre has brought together colour psychologists, light artists and designers to help boost the mood and wellbeing of the people of Nottingham by creating three glowing ‘light houses’ featuring colour combinations proven to make visitors feel happier, calmer or more energised.

“The Light House Experience, which can be found on the lower mall outside Next, Boots and John Lewis & Partners, will run from 24 August – 20 September. Each light house is free to experience and aims to use the psychological benefits of colour to help improve the wellbeing of visitors as part of intu Victoria Centre’s pledge to make its visitors happier. After its initial visit at the end of March was postponed due to lockdown, The Light House Experience is now open in line with the latest social distancing measures featuring hand sanitisation zones with only members of the same household encouraged to visit at the same time.

“Nigel Wheatley, centre director at intu Victoria Centre, comments: “Now that 97% of our stores are open again, we’re pleased to be finally bringing The Light House Experience to intu Victoria Centre to brighten a lot of people’s days. We are committed to the wellbeing of our people and those coming to visit and have spent a long time working with colour psychologists, artists and designers to create colourful experiences to enjoy that are scientifically shown to positively influence our moods. Of course, safety is our top priority. We’re working hard to ensure intu Victoria Centre is a safe place to visit and we’re excited to be welcoming back more of our visitors each week, both familiar faces and new ones.”
