Light Night Leeds 2014

About Light Night..

This year we are celebrating our 10th festival! An amazing and unique opportunity to explore Leeds with your friends and family, as we shine a light on the city, providing everyone with a night to remember. Light Night opens the doors of museums, galleries, theatres and open spaces, showcasing a vibrant mix of events for all ages, from light installations to street theatre, music, performance, film, dance, circus, exhibitions and family friendly activities.

For one night only the city centre will come alive with spectacular large scale light projections, exhibitions, installations, film, dance, music, theatre and street performances. Many of the city’s arts organisations and public buildings will be opening their doors late into the night as artists transform spaces into temporary showcases of their work. Bring your friends and family along to experience a fantastic festival atmosphere, navigate your way around over 50 different events across the city centre, and sample some delicious street food. As darkness falls, come and see the city of Leeds in a new light!
