Severn Arts has announced fresh funding from Arts Council England, ensuring the return of Light Night Worcester for the upcoming 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 was last years event, Light Night 2024 is scheduled to grace Worcester’s city center over two evenings during the February school half-term. The event’s lineup will feature a collection of light-infused artworks and installations, coupled with captivating creative projects specially commissioned for local artists. The festivities will encompass interactive endeavors aimed at involving community groups and the general public, complemented by the presence of intriguing walkabout performers for added amusement and engagement.
Light Night Worcester 2024 will be ‘Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.’
