Volunteering Opportunity: Light Night 2018

Light Night 2018 Volunteer Information

Light Night is a multi-arts and light festival which takes over Leeds city centre on 2 nights in early October. The city’s arts and cultural venues open their doors late into the evening, and artists transform indoor and outdoor spaces into exciting, interactive works of art.

This year’s festival will take place on the evenings of Thursday 4th and Friday 5th October. Volunteers must also be able to attend one of our briefing sessions taking place at 6pm on Wednesday 19th September and 6pm on Monday 24th September.
