About Light Night

Celebrating the diverse and thriving creativity of Leeds, Light Night Leeds is an annual free multi-arts and light festival that takes over Leeds City Centre for two nights in October.

Starting in 2005, the event has grown year on year and in 2019 was enjoyed by around 150,000 local, national and international visitors.
