Over two incredible nights in October the festival takes over the city centre of Leeds, transforming public spaces with spectacular artworks and captivating live shows by local, national and international artists. Light Night invites people to see the city in a new light and discover large-scale light projections, interactive installations, music, dance and street theatre. In 2019 more than 100,000 people attended over 60 free arts events celebrating the theme of ‘Mind, Body and Spirit’.
