Lightpool Festival Director - Phil Holmes
To complement this we will run a programme of live performances each night, all related to light and fire, with talent coming from the UK and abroad. Fire, highly explosive percussion performances, illuminated parades and processions.
Light art festivals are a phenomenon spreading across the globe, and just in the North of England you may well have heard of Lumiere in Durham, Light Up Lancaster, Illuminating York, Light Night Leeds and many others.
The Lightpool festival will take place in the spiritual home of illuminations. By running during the October half-term, the festival allows us to present different sorts of work. It means we can transform the town centre into a playground for people to explore. By being free to attend, the Lightpool Festival 2019 will offer a wonderful opportunity for whole families to experience something different.
