WATCH: Spectra, Aberdeen’s festival of light opens today

Spectra, Aberdeen’s festival of light, gets underway today with Union Terrace Gardens transformed into a giant playground.

The centre of the site is home to illuminated musical see-saws which change colour and generate noise as people bounce up and down on them for the fourth outing of Spectra.
