Exchange Gallery Penzance

The Real Penzance Christmas Lights

This isn’t one of my photos, my father-in-law, Mick took it. It was languishing on Flickr with about 3 views but I thought it deserved a little better than that.

It’s the Exchange Gallery in Penzance. Located on the ground floor of the old BT telephone exchange the main feature is this huge undulating window containing arrays of coloured LED lights which change with changes in pressure. Quite a feat of engineering taking out the external wall I’d imagine but the effect is definitely worth it.
Here we have the display in purple mode around Christmas time – you can see the Christmas tree inside. So whilst the main Penzance Christmas lights may be a little less than inspiring the Exchange puts on this show every night of the year
