Light Night 14 May 2010

Friday 14 May 2010 will see over 50 Liverpool venues staying open late into the night, and putting on special events for explorers of all ages to enjoy the amazing mix of attractions in our vibrant city.

Light Night is a national event where cities ‘stay up late’; encouraging people of all ages to celebrate the city and it’s culture by seeing it in a different light.  A vast array of venues will be open late into the night showcasing a vibrant mix of arts and culture, late night shopping, walking tours and other special events and attractions.

Light Night also adds a second late night offering to the city, following in the footsteps of ‘The Long Night’ events and building on its success – speaking of which, The Long Night will be on 18 November this year.

Light Night in Liverpool also coincides with ‘Museums at Night’; an EU wide initiative and Culture24 spearheads the national campaign promoting late opening cultural spaces on the weekend of 14 May each year.
