Light Night returned on 14 and 15 February 2024 with giant light-based artworks, colourful interactive installations, inspiring artistic commissions and entertaining walkabout artists, all highlighting their take on being connected.

The programme included:

  • Evanescent a large-scale piece capturing the magic of bubbles, by Atelier Sisu.
  • Juan Fuentes’s Kinetic Perspective, a 20m long installation creating illusions to thrill and captivate.
  • Network by Gemma Woodtaking us on a spellbinding exploration inside the mind.
  • Paul Alty’s Black Hole – End of Time immersive multimedia experience.
  • The Nectary by Alison Smith and Dr Chris Hassall, inviting the audience to mimic a pollinating insect.
  • New Worlds by Halina Rice, an indoor installation bringing a blend of emotive music, lights and visual.
  • Aura dance performance, merging music and visuals, commissioned by Dancefest.
  • Stained Glass Window at St Andrew’s Church illuminated and shining brightly in the night. 

Artists Dom Breadmore and Anne Forgan worked with community groups to design illuminated banners as part of their Light Night Pop-up People’s Pavilion in Cornmarket. The Artery Studios created an immersive walk-through light experience, giving insight into a neurodivergent mind.  And in the week leading up to the festival artists Lou Baker and Oly Bliss invited everyone to join them as they made sculptures to add to their immersive, glow-in-the-dark installation.
