5 reasons why your business should engage in Light Night this year:

  1.  Huge in-person opportunities to showcase your brand

In the past years Light Night Leeds has presented over 60 activities per annum across 10+ zones attracting more than 150,000 visitors to enjoy world-class, cutting-edge art, here in the city of Leeds.  Many of these installations have been on, in or – near to a sponsoring business – helping get people to notice your brand first-hand.

2.  Fantastic online opportunities

In 2022 a massive 420,000 unique page views saw the Light Night Leeds website. Each sponsor we work with receives a presence and click-through to their page(s) of choice.  Moreover, we also support with a specific social media campaign across Twitter, Facebook and Instagram with 50,000 followers

3.  Unique media and marketing moments

Year after year Light Night Leeds receives extensive local, regional, and national media coverage in print, broadcast and online. In the past this included live coverage on BBC Breakfast, Calendar & Look North, some of which was filmed on sponsor’s properties. Print engagement is also strong with the festival featuring in The Telegraph; The Guardian and most local and regional papers covering activity.  We can also support you to deliver the best possible press release.

4.  Give back to the city

Light Night Leeds is completely free to all, enabling everyone to experience the city in a new light. Together we enhance the city’s profile and reputation globally by presenting large-scale, world-class arts events and creating a unique festival atmosphere with the opportunity to experience and celebrate quality arts and culture.  Last year the festival was worth nearly £3,000,000 to the local economy.

Fully accessible and family friendly, we programme a range of activities to engage with community groups, schools, and families to create new light art for the event. We will provide guided tours in several languages for refugees and asylum seekers, enabling them to access the arts and feel welcome in the city. We will also provide tours for groups such as young carers, the homeless, and older people who often experience barriers to attending activities in the city centre. Our free Light Night Rider buses improve accessibility, helping people to travel between different zones and attend a greater number of events, and our shuttle services from disadvantaged areas of the city promote participation from residents.

5.  Unique staff and client engagement opportunities

Many of our sponsors have participated in unique engagement during Light Night Leeds, some of which are open to family members. Examples include key volunteering roles such as supporting Light Night tours for disadvantaged groups, competitions or Light Night bespoke entertainment events and activities.
