14th & 15th October
The spectacular wonders of the natural world will come to life on the streets of Leeds when Light Night returns this October. The hugely popular cultural showpiece will see a breath-taking programme of illuminated artworks take over well-known landmarks and locations across Leeds city centre on October 14 and 15.
Light Night Leeds returns this year with the strapline ‘Back to Nature’. Artists from around the world will be coming together on the 14th & 15th October, creating pieces reflecting everything from the spectacular diversity of the animal kingdom to the beauty of trees and plants and even the unstoppable power of the weather.
Highlights this year will include the chance to catch digital lightning bolts, cast from the front of Leeds Civic Hall thanks to artist Seb Lee-Delisle, and the opportunity to take control of a circle of futuristic monoliths on Millennium Square with Canadian studios Jack World and Ottomata. Take a look at the Top Ten Highlights here.
