Official Light Night photographers and videographers will be covering all our events for marketing and publicity purposes. By attending any Light Night event you are consenting to your image being recorded.

As Light Night events take place in public spaces we cannot control other people taking images of events on phones or cameras. We ask that if you are taking images at the event and posting them on social media that you are mindful of other people’s privacy, especially children and young people who are not part of your group.
