Who and Why
Co-ordinated by Liverpool non-profit organisation Open Culture, LightNight gives the local arts community a platform to create a varied programme of arts and cultural activity concentrated into a single evening.
This collective expression of creativity acts as a celebration of the city’s culture, a showcase that draws positive focus locally, regionally and nationally.
The festival is part of Museums at Night, the national festival of arts & culture that sees cultural spaces around the UK open late into the night.
