The Bristol Light Festival will bring colour, light and play to city centre spaces with a series of commissions from local and internationally renowned artists.
The Light Festival will take visitors along several different routes from Cabot Circus to Park Street, via locations such as Castle Bridge, Temple Gardens, Queen Square, Harbourside, St George’s Bristol and the City Centre, discovering different installations along the way. At each location, visitors will be able to see, experience and enjoy six world premiere works light art installations that are brand new for Bristol, alongside some of the best of the UK’s talent, all making their Bristol debut at carefully selected locations.
From 5pm-10pm, visitors will be able to wander through the city when the installations will shine a light in a few unexpected places as well as illuminating some of Bristol’s most iconic landmarks. This year, two daylight installations will add a new dimension to the event offering a chance to experience the event during the day.
Bristol Light Festival is presented by Bristol City Centre Business Improvement District (BID) working in partnership with Redcliffe and Temple BID, Arts Council England, and Cabot Circus, and curated by the festival’s creative director Katherine Jewkes.
The safety and wellbeing of visitors is a priority, and a series of COVID-19 safety requirements will be implemented including social distancing, hand sanitiser stations, the inclusion of artworks that can be viewed from a distance, and an increased event duration to spread visitor numbers across six days and evenings.
5pm-10pm every night during the festival.
There will also be a selection of daylight and green energy installations, adding a new dimension to the event and the opportunity for those visiting and working in the city to experience some of the artworks throughout the day.
