Light Up Leicester is an ambitious spectacle event that animates the public realm with illuminated, engaging and playful light-based artworks, led by Leicester City Council’s Festivals & Events, BID Leicester and creative producer ArtReach.
Over four days, Light Up Leicester will illuminate the city centre with a trail of nine stunning and playful immersive artworks.
Two will be next to LCB Depot – Fantastic Planet in Orton Square and Mycelium (picture above) in St George’s cemetery.
The Light Cafe – Lighting The Way
During the Light Up Leicester 2022 festival, BETA X at 72 Churchgate LE1 3AN will become The Light Café.
The Light Café will be a venue showing light works by locally-based artists Andy Harper & Leonie DuBarry-Gurr, Joe Moran, Paul Mazzitelli, Tony Coleman, and Sean Clark.
The Light Café will also be hosting light sculptures made by pupils at local schools who have been involved in Lighting The Way, plus a gallery of pictures of work made in the workshops and by people at home.
