Days are getting shorter, but don’t worry! Light Up Lancaster festival is happening in less than two weeks to fill Lancaster with warm light and joy after sunset. There’ll be art installations, music, performances, and activities for everyone. You can find the full program here.

Art and installations take place on Friday 4th of November, from 5pm to 10pm, and Saturday 5th of November, from 5pm to 7:30pm (or 7pm in the Castle zone venue). The festival wraps up Saturday at 8pm with a spectacular finale: The Fireworks from the Lancaster Castle. If you can see the castle, you can see the fireworks!
