The white roof of the Festival Theatre is a perfect canvas for the projection of photos that take the viewer on the centre's 40 year history of events and festivals.

See the changing photos - approximately every 20 seconds, the photos on walls and roof and the music change.

Now that was a short article!
I confess I found it hard to get much info about the show, so hadn't bothered covering it...

Thanks for writing this one. What a great icon is SA and not advertised. I will definitely be taking my camera and children along to see the lights.
