Get ready to witness the skies above the Yorkshire coast come to life with radiant hues as Light Night returns for 2024.
Light Night 2024
This years event promises to be more dazzling than ever before. Spanning from the picturesque shores of Bridlington to the haunting cliffs of Whitby, this captivating laser show will enchant audiences from near and far.
The event runs daily from Monday 26th February 26th until Sunday 3rd March from 7.00pm to 10.00pm each evening.
Lighting up Iconic Locations
The spectacle will illuminate the coastline, stretching up to 25 miles away on a clear night shining a light on iconic locations and landmarks across the Yorkshire coast.
The lights stretch over 20 miles with beams so powerful they have to be cleared by the civil aviation authority!
Showcasing the Beauty of the Yorkshire Coast
Light Night has been created by Yorkshire Coast BID in collaboration with Polestar Productions to showcase the beauty of the Yorkshire Coast after dark and attract visitors outside of the peak tourist season.
Kerry Carruthers, Chief Executive of Yorkshire Coast BID, said: “After the success of the pilot event, we wanted to bring it back with more lasers, dates and locations as a way to showcase the scale and diversity of the Yorkshire Coast.
“There are so many incredible historic and cultural landmarks and viewpoints across the coast, that we see this as an event with great potential to keep evolving over future years to not only attract visitors to stay in the area, but also provide a free activity for residents to enjoy and a reminder for us all, about what the area is known for. From historic abbeys to the fishing industry and iconic lighthouses, we have it all, and we’d like to thank everyone who is playing a role in bringing this event to life.”
