Experience Art in the Dark!

Light Night Leeds is the UK’s largest annual arts and light festival.

For the past 17 years, over two incredible nights in October, some of Leeds's most recognisable indoor and outdoor spaces have been 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, there is always something for everyone!

Following on from the hugely successful ‘Laser Light City’ in 2020, Light Night Leeds will return with a new festival on Thursday 14 and Friday 15 October 2021.

See the Events section for what's on in our 10 zones this year.
