An Oasis-Themed Neon Art Installation Is Coming To Spinningfields

Spinningfields is set to be Manchester’s most romantic destination this Valentine’s weekend.

Looking to experience a Valentine’s Day like no other? Look no further than Spinningfields, where you’ll be wowed by a collection of dazzling art displays.

‘With Love’ by Franck Pelletier

The centrepiece will be the monumental, six-metre, inflatable heart, ‘With Love’, by French artist Franck Pelletier, which will illuminate Hardman Square from February 12 – 16.

Previously seen in destinations such as Singapore and France, ‘With Love’ takes the pulse of a city by sensing the light, temperature, and atmospheric pressure, which is then converted into flashing lights to represent the ‘beat’.

In front of the installation, couples, friends and families can push a button to hear their hearts through music, with a special song selected from hundreds to play just for them, based on their unique heart rate.

This will be accompanied by the iconic Heart of Manchester, which will be beating vibrant colours from the Quay Street façade of No1. Spinningfields from February 10-16.

Best seen from Deansgate-Castlefield Metrolink station, this eye-catching light installation will be joined by the iconic ‘Wonderwall’ lyrics, which will shine brightly from February 13-20.

Plus, don’t miss Spinningfields’ special Instagram competition, open until February 12, for your chance to win the perfect evening for two, complete with a stunning view over the city.

One lucky pair will secure dinner for two at 20 Stories, accompanied by a beautiful bouquet by David Wayman Flowers, a £50 Spinningfields gift card, and a box of cupcakes from Hey Little Cupcake!
