Help us by doing your bit for the environment

We are committed to reducing the environmental impact of our event. You can join in and help us by:

  1. joining the Light Out Leeds scheme

    This is your opportunity to help us to reduce the carbon used during the festival. Turn off you lights and non-essential electric items during the event. You can use the hashtag #lightsoutleeds when using social media.

  2. downloading the app to help us save paper

    In 2019, we produced our first Light Night Leeds app for just £2 to reduce the amount of physical copies of the festival guide produced. All paper copies leftover were recycled.

  3. leaving your car at home and use public transport, cycle or car-share

    When you are making your plans for the festival, please look at public transport external link, or consider cycling in or car sharing with family, friends.

  4. bringing and using your reusable water bottle

    We support Refill, the campaign designed to help you reduce your plastic pollution, by making it easy to refill your reusable water bottle instead of buying a plastic one. To find your nearest station visit the Refill website external link or download their app.
