About the Event
Large-scale light installations will pop up at iconic landmarks in and around the city centre and seafront including Southend Pier in February 2023, thanks to the Southend-on-Sea City Council and ESL Technology Group.
We are very pleased to host 'Nova' - the artwork is based around the mythical Star of the East which astronomers now believe to be a nova. A transient astronomical event that causes the sudden appearance of a bright, seemingly new star.
As a spectator, you will feel like you are experiencing a nova or “new star" – mighty and dazzling.

Entry to the pier to see Nova is free after 5pm. The pier walkway and train will be closed at 5pm.
During the day the pier is open from 10:15am - 5pm (last entry at 4pm). The installation will not be illuminated during these times. Normal pier entry prices apply from 10:15am - 5pm.
Please note, dogs and smoking are not allowed on the pier.
