One of the projector heads lighting up the dome of the Grand theatre as it moves round. Each post has a mobile rotating projector that streams moving patterns and emblems on the pavements and buildings. There are several of these erected in Church street and Corporation street. Additional lighting features are due to be installed in the area over the next few months.
