Light Up Lancaster event at Lancaster Library

Lancaster Library will host an event as part of the annual Light Up Lancaster arts festival this month.

'One Dark Night' will be held on Friday 4th November from 5.00 until 9.00pm and is free to attend.

Anyone attending the event will be able to create light art with torches, glow sticks and finger lights.

The library café will be lit by candlelight, and visitors will be entertained by a creative light performance and make a personal creative picture.

As we've previously reported, the Light Up Lancaster two night arts festival will take place over Friday 4th and Saturday 5th November. Lancaster will be transformed into a celebration of light and art, with music, dance and theatre performances.

County Councillor Marcus Johnstone, Lancashire County Council's cabinet member for environment, planning and cultural services, said: "I'm delighted that the library is involved in this fantastic free weekend of cultural events which are going to take place across the city.

"Visitors will get the chance to experience the library after dark and create their own light art to draw a picture, write something or simply get really creative. We'll even email you a digital photo as a memento.

"The café will also be candlelit, with artists entertaining you whilst you enjoy refreshments.

"I'm sure it will be great entertainment for everyone."
