2024 Festival Dates: 6 & 7 July

Art in Manufacturing: Peddie’s, Illuminos + Cardboard Box Company

Illuminos are brothers Matt and Rob Vale, who, for over 10 years,  have been creating visually inventive, memorable projection artworks and experiences. Works range from epic scale illumination to small scale interventions, but always working to create something unique and specific to location and viewer.

As part of Art in Manufacturing Illuminos has been in residency with returning manufacturer Cardboard Box Company most recently awarded the winner of the Community Engagement Award at the 2022 Paper Industry Gold Awards.

Experience a moment of wonder and delight in a magical new installation of illuminated chocolate boxes. During their residency with Cardboard Box Company, Illuminos have delved into their own family history, taking inspiration from their Grandfather, Bob Peddie’s confectionery shop window in 1950s Accrington.

The cardboard installation will come to life using animation and projection mapping with a confection of imaginative tales, like something from a fairy story, along with the family’s archival material.
