About

Light Night Leeds is the UK’s largest annual arts and light festival. For the past 16 years, over two incredible nights in October some of Leeds’ most recognisable indoor and outdoor spaces are transformed by spectacular artworks and captivating performances by local, national and international artists. Light Night invites people to see the city in a new light and discover free arts events across the city centre. From large-scale light projections and interactive installations, to music, dance and street performances.


Starting in 2005, the event has grown year on year and in 2019 was enjoyed by around 150,000 local, national and international visitors. In 2020 Light Night Leeds was proud to be able to deliver a socially distanced festival which included ‘Laser Light City’ – an interactive artwork which allowed the public to control lasers mounted on seven iconic buildings in Leeds. Light Night Leeds will be returning in October 2021.
