Light Up Lancaster 2018
November 2 - November 3Free
A MAGICAL FESTIVAL OF LIGHT & ART
Light Up Lancaster invites you to explore the city through the imagination of artists, using the medium of light in all its forms.
Local artists will be rubbing shoulders alongside international artists as they bring their inspiration to Lancaster to create intriguing art and memorable performances across the city. From the most well-known places such as Lancaster Castle and the Judges’ Lodgings, to hidden gems in secret squares and historic buildings, Light Up Lancaster artworks will create a whole new experience of the city.
On Saturday enjoy the festival’s finale as fireworks are launched from the grounds of Lancaster Castle. The display, which lights up the historic landscape and skyline of the city, continues to be one of the finest displays in the north.
So wrap up warm and wander between sites of illumination, indoors and out, and experience this wonderful northern historic city at night.

The festival is supported with funding from Arts Council England, Lancaster City Council and Lancaster Business Improvement District (BID). Additional financial and in-kind support comes from the University of Cumbria, Pennine Events, the Duchy of Lancaster and Lancaster’s arts organisations.
