Light Night’s glowing goliaths will be out of this world.
A group of gigantic, luminous humanoids will land in the city centre for a captivating interplanetary installation at this year’s Light Night Leeds in the all-new Victoria Zone encompassing Victoria Leeds!
To celebrate some of our wonderful brands will be staying open until 8pm as well as hosting some Light Night themed entertainment of their own.
Please see the list below for more information.
The mesmerising piece, entitled Fantastic Planet, is set to be one of the highlights of the annual cultural spectacular and will be found in the event’s new Victoria Zone, occupying sites in Sidney Street, Victoria Gate, and the top end of Briggate.
Jo Coburn, general manager of Victoria Leeds said: “We are excited to welcome what is sure to be the show-stopper of Light Night Leeds this year. The scale of the piece and the marvel that these humanoids inspire is magical. We are over the moon that we can host this piece here at Victoria Leeds, bringing something completely different and enchanting to our customers.”
The installation will be one of more than 60 incredible light and sound pieces which will transform city centre landmarks around Leeds including The Queens Hotel, Kirkgate Market, Leeds Town Hall and Leeds Civic Hall.
This year’s event has the theme of progress and innovation, with a programme of pieces by international artists celebrating history, technology and social change.
