Light, art and 150 runners come together in dazzling fashion on
Light Night Leeds 2015
Join us for this free, fantastic, active and arty experience on Friday 9th October
For your chance to join in this amazing, fun and FREE event
Light Night Art Runs are FREE but places are strictly limited.
150 illuminated runners – that’s you! – will weave their way through the Light Night crowds, making this fun Art Run a dazzling thrill of a jog. This is your chance to see the art and be the art. Setting out from Leeds College of Music, we’ll do a glowing warm up outside West Yorkshire Playhouse, then take a fantastic 4km run creating a dynamic vision of light in motion.
This year we’re adding sound too so please bring bells, whistles, maracas and anything else to make some noise with (but please no vuvuzelas)!
Light Night Art Runs 2015 registration on the night opens at 7pm, 9th October 2015.
The run begins at 7.30pm and will last up to an hour, depending on the crowds.
Light Night Art Runs 2015 are brought to you by:
Is there an age limit to enter the event?
The event is for primarily adults over 16. However, we have a few places for 12-16 year olds so if you’d like to bring children along, please email us to discuss.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
Light Night Leeds 2015 will be really busy and there will be some road closures. Please use public transport or pedal power if possible. If you do drive, please allow plenty of time to get to the event.
What can/can’t I bring to the event?
There will be a cloakroom but please note that items are left at your own risk. Don’t bring the family silver.
Is my registration/ticket transferrable?
No. For safety reasons, we have to know exactly who is running with us on the night. If you can’t make it, please cancel your place and allow someone else to book it.
Is Light Night Art Runs a race?
It’s not a race, but it is a slow run. Please only sign up if you’re comfortable with running for 10-15 minutes without stopping. The pace is slow and there are stops along the way but it’s a run, not a walk.
Will there be anything for my friends and family to do in the Cultural Quarter while I’m running?
Yes, there’s loads to do while the run is on! Street food from The Wardrobe, a kids’ silent disco and other events at Yorkshire Dance, stunning projections on the fly tower at West Yorkshire Playhouse, an exhibition launch at Cafe 164 and street music and more at Leeds College of Music. The street will be closed so it will be a fun, safe for everyone to hang out.
