About LightNight

On LightNight, Liverpool springs to life for a Friday night out like no other. With new commissions and a packed programme of more than 100 events, the festival offers an unforgettable experience to be enjoyed with friends and family. Venues across the city will stay open late to present live music, workshops, theatre, exhibitions and much more.

For 2019 LightNight explores personal and collective rituals, from the spiritual to the habitual, and consider how they help us to understand the world and define, or transcend, our place within it.

Festival guides can be purchased from selected outlets across the city centre or ordered online at www.lightnightliverpool.co.uk.

LightNight is produced by local social enterprise Open Culture.
