Lincoln West End Lights

8th December 2017

The night when we light up our streets

It’s Lincoln’s home-grown night of light when ordinary people do something extraordinary!

It started in Lincoln’s West End in 2010 when 9 houses took part. The city was covered in snow and the roads were closed because of thick ice. In the cold winter’s chill a few warm lights shone out as house windows were turned into cinema screens, light sculptures bloomed in front gardens and candles in lanterns flickered much to the surprise of unsuspecting passersby.

Since then the event has grown with over 60 locations taking part now.

This year we are back again and you can take part. You don’t have to be film director or an award winning artists. What you need is a willingness to give it a go, have some fun and help make your community shine.

All that we ask is that what you create makes people of all ages smile.

It’s your chance to wrap up warm, meet on the street and enjoy the imagination and community spirit to be found in this part of Lincoln.

To give you an idea here is a short film by Ellie Plummer from the University of Lincoln showing some of the glowing on in 2016.
