Bigger. Bolder. Brighter – Light Night Leeds 2018

Thursday 4 and Friday 5 October

Light Night Leeds is one of the UK’s largest annual arts and light festivals. Over two special nights the city centre is transformed by spectacular light projections, interactive artworks and captivating performances by local, national and international artists.

This year Light Night Leeds celebrates the themes of progress and innovation, kicking off with a vibrant illuminated parade celebrating 100 years of social change since (some) women got the vote.
Other highlights will be an incredible digital projection that will use the historic stonework of Leeds Civic Hall as its canvas, while elsewhere giant illuminated humanoids will take over the city centre and a fearsome dragon will make an appearance on The Queen’s Hotel!
