Light Night Leeds

Run away to the Light Night Circus!

Light Night is an annual multi-artform festival, which takes place on 4th October at numerous venues across Leeds city centre. It is a celebratory showcase for the huge range of diverse and thriving creative activity taking place in Leeds all year round, and gives visitors free access to art and venues that they might not normally see.

Light Night aims to:

  • Deliver an annual multi-artform festival across multiple venues happening on one evening in Leeds city centre.
  • Bring new audiences and welcome more young people and their families into cultural venues in the city.
  • Grow new audiences for all artforms and increase access for people from diverse backgrounds who would not normally attend arts activities.
  • Enable and support artists and arts organisations to collaborate, show new work in new and/or unusual spaces and develop their audiences.

Light Night is co-ordinated by the Arts Development Team from Leeds City Council in partnership with organisations and individuals from across the city
