Bristol Light Festival

Bristol Light Festival

Bristol Light Festival has returned for 2022

Between Tuesday 1 - Sunday 6 March 2022, Bristol Light Festival will feature 14 different illuminated art installations, which are scattered across the city.

The exhibitions feature six world premier works, brand new for Bristol, alongside some of the best of the UK’s talent, all making their Bristol debut at carefully selected locations across the city centre. Visitors can wander and explore the city’s streets to see the light art works come to life and enjoy Bristol’s wonderful retail and hospitality businesses along the way.

Bristol Light Festival will appear along some of the city centre's well-trodden paths as well as in some unexpected locations. At each spot visitors will be able to see, experience and play with installations that are visiting the South West for the first time. Running from 17:00 until 22:00 GMT each day, the installations will illuminate landmarks around Bristol

This year’s festival will benefit from a successful grant application from the Arts Council England which will support the delivery of 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. By day and night, the event is the perfect opportunity for friends, colleagues, and families to meet.

Everything is free to attend and open to everyone across the full week.

You can find more information about the festival, including a map of the attractions, on their website:
