Worcester's city centre streets were buzzing last night as crowds were entertained by this year’s Light night programme of creative and interactive work and walkabout street performances. 

David Edmunds, Festivals Director said: “Great to see once again Worcester audiences come out on mass to engage with Light Night. We are thrilled with the turn out and the response to the work, proving once again that Worcester really is a city of lights.” 

Laura Worsfold, CEO Severn Arts said: “Every Light Night Festival has something a bit different and this fourth one was no exception; inflatable giants, a high tech interactive light game, serene blue balls to hug, beautiful butterflies, and huge desk lamps lighting the way! The city was full of people and we hope we have managed to raise a smile and provide some joy on a damp February evening. We are thankful to our funders and supporters for four years’ worth of inspiring artworks and creative opportunity through the arches project. Now we need to make sure Worcester can continue to offer these free fun festivals. Our funding runs out at the end of March, so we are now looking for ideas and support to make this an annual event in the years to come. Please get in touch if you can help.” 

Light Night is part of the festival programme produced and managed by Severn Arts and the Arches Festivals team as part of The Arches Worcester project. Light Night Worcester 2023 is supported by Worcester BID, Worcestershire LEP, PBSigns and Guthrie Roberts.
