Light Up Lancaster 2017

Light up Lancaster will return this November thanks to funding from Arts Council England.

The two day festival of art, light and fireworks in the city has also been funded by Lancaster City Council, Lancaster BID and Lancaster Arts City.

Now in its fifth year, it will take place on Friday the 3rd and Saturday the 4th of November.

The illuminated art trail through the city centre will see buildings, squares, gardens and monuments come to life with projections, artwork and performances – all around this year’s theme, ‘The Natural World’.

On the Saturday evening, the city’s annual firework spectacular will be launched from the grounds of Lancaster’s medieval castle from 8pm.

As in previous years, entry to the official viewing areas at Giant Axe and Quay Meadow will be free and wristbands to access the sites will be available to order in the next two weeks.
