The light installation measures a whopping eight metres by three metres and comprises 48 unfilled containers which typically hold 1,000 litres of water in each.

The feature has been specially adapted to create an eco-friendly light feature to raise the importance of water.

Did you know that the average person uses the same amount of water these containers hold within the space of a year? And that’s only at home.

Our great grandparents managed with only three containers.

Aqualux will be touring Blackpool tonight and stationed at Tower Headland until October 30
