Celestial presents ‘Evolution’ – a new drone show event in Bristol and Wolverhampton

Tuesday 12th September marks the launch of ticket sales for Evolution, an epic drone light show event taking place this December in Wolverhampton and Bristol. Celestial have partnered with local experiences company Yuup, Seat Unique Stadium in Bristol and Wolverhampton Racecourse in the West Midlands, to bring audiences a drone display for the whole family.

“Evolution has been three years in the making. This is so much more than a drone light show, it's an experience with stadium scale, created to bring audiences together using a new medium to tell the story of time.”

About the Evolution Drone Show in Bristol and Wolverhampton

Evolution is a visually immersive drone light show that will use hundreds of drones to bring audiences on a mesmerising journey through time and space. The story starts with the Big Bang, the explosive inception of the universe and journeys into the mesmerising emergence of the sun, our solar system and the planets that inhabit it. The cosmic voyage then guides you through the remarkable origins of conscious life on Earth, from the humble beginnings of single-cell organisms to the awe-inspiring reign of the dinosaurs and culminates in a celebration of the diverse tapestry of life on Earth today.

How Much Are Tickets to the Live Drone Display?

This breathtaking event is suitable for everybody, so the whole family can gather together, and experience something truly magical, displayed in the night sky of Bristol and Wolverhampton. Disability access is also available.

There are no age restrictions, and the cost of the tickets to Evolution in Bristol starts from £12, and in Wolverhampton from £6. Children aged 3 or under can attend the show for free.

“We're hugely excited to be partnering with Celestial to bring this unique spectacle to the people of Bristol and the West Midlands at such an epic scale! This kind of show will offer a brand-new source of winter entertainment unlike anything anyone has ever seen, encouraging people to look up and reconnect with the world.”

Bring Magic to Winter this Year with this Mesmerising Journey Through Time and Space
