Friday, 6th November 2020 - Saturday, 7th November 2020

The magical citywide festival of light, art and fireworks returns to Lancaster this 6-7 November.

Transforming the streets, gardens and historical venues of Lancaster on the first weekend of November is LIGHT UP LANCASTER – a spectacular 2-night festival of light and art by international and local artists – illuminating the city’s heritage buildings, public spaces and community corners.

This free festival offers families the perfect opportunity to take a magical evening stroll through the historic city of Lancaster. See the City Museum, Market Square, The Storey, Maritime Museum and Judges’ Lodgings in sparkling splendour.

For 2019, LIGHT UP LANCASTER commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission and the moment that Neil Armstrong and Edwin ‘Buzz’ Aldrin first set foot on the moon.

LIGHT UP LANCASTER will culminate with a superb festival finale on Saturday when fireworks are launched from the grounds of Lancaster Castle.   Free wristbands for the firework official areas at Giant Axe and Quay Meadow are available to order from late September from the festival website.

Full 2020 programme TBC.
