Severn Arts have announced new funding from Arts Council England, making it possible for Light Night Worcester to take place again next year.

Laura Worsfold, Severn Arts CEO said: “Light Night Worcester has been so popular and well attended over the last four years, bringing thousands of people into the city and adding much needed joy to the darker nights, so we’re delighted our application for new funding has been successful.

“This funding plus the financial support we have secured from our local councils, businesses, organisations and individuals means that we can confirm Light Night will take place again in February. But to be able to provide a truly spectacular safe and free to attend event for everyone we hope people will continue to support us through donations and any help they might be able to give.

“We are really hoping that with this national funding announcement more local businesses and sponsors will come forward and support the event.”

As in previous years Light Night 2024 will take place in Worcester city centre over two evenings in the February school half-term.  The programme will celebrate and showcase light-based artworks and installations alongside inspiring artistic commissions for local artists. It will include participatory projects for community groups and the public and have the added entertainment of interesting and engaging walkabout artists.

Light Night Worcester 2024 will be ‘Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.’
