'The White Knight Messenger' makes it way down Lydiard Street

A beloved White Night favourite for two years running, the Messenger is back with tidings of peace and unity – something the world needs now more than ever!

Over five metres high and with wings that span six metres, the Messenger is an awe-inspiring, futuristic archangel that transcends nationality and religion to spread its message of love and compassion. Highlighting that our similarities are more important than our differences, the Messenger will once again stride through the streets aiming to inspire all people, regardless of race, gender, faith, age or orientation.

Brought to life by eight talented puppeteers and performers, the White Knight Messenger draws on light, colour, cross-cultural iconography and human diversity to act as a guardian of the night, overseeing the crowds and ensuring the wows!
