LightNight Liverpool - just one week to go!

LIGHTNIGHT, Liverpool's annual 1 night arts festival returns to the City this Friday, 13 May 2016, when thousands of visitors will explore and celebrate the City's world class cultural offer late into the night.

Over 100 free events will take place across 1 unforgettable evening with galleries, museums, heritage buildings, universities, theatres and art studios open late into the night with everything from newly commissioned premiers, science demonstrations, live cathedral concerts, user controlled AV installations to mass dance workshops and sing alongs, exhibitions, drawing classes and walking tours. It's sure to be a Friday night out with a difference!

Visitors to the festival will once again be able to travel from venue to venue in style as Merseyside Transport Trust is providing a free heritage circular bus service using classic Liverpool buses running every 10 minutes between 18:00 to 23:00. The route serves Pier Head, Jamaica Street, the Cathedrals and William Brown Street. The full route can be found on the map in the LightNight festival guide.

For the first time there's an official LightNight after party, held at Constellations on Greenland Street in the Baltic Triangle. Starting from 10pm, the lineup includes hip hop and soul from No Fakin' DJs, house and techno from Abandon Silence's Andrew Hill and disc jockey duo Faux Queens serving up high energy booty bass. There'll also be surprise pop up performances and live visuals from artist Sam Wiehl. Tickets can be booked now. Tickets cost just £4 plus booking fee online or £5 on the door. All proceeds from ticket sales go towards LightNight 2017.

Nick Stockman, Campaigns Manager at Culture 24, organisers of Museums at Night said:- "Once again Liverpool's LightNight festival shines brightly in the Museums at Night firmament with an array of dazzling events. All over the City the most diverse range of venues will, for one night only, come together to produce an astonishing menu of cultural treats to enjoy and live long in the memory. Museums at Night, the UK's festival for the culturally curious, takes place in over two hundred cities and towns over four nights in May and Liverpool's LightNight contribution is an inimitable expression of the City's vibrant, dynamic and ever evolving arts and culture offer.  We're encouraging audiences to Experiment, open their mind and visit a new venue. With 44 venues and over 100 organisations large and small participating in this year's festival they have plenty of choice, including smaller venues like 24 Kitchen Street, Arena Studios and Gallery, Baltic Clay, Constellations, Ninety Squared, Nordic Church, 104 Duke Street, dot-art, Hope Street Ltd, Liverpool Small Cinema, Road Studios, St John's Beacon, 92 Degrees Coffee, Liverpool Medical Institute, The Casa, Gostins Buildings, Kazimier Garden Cosmolodge, MYA Lox & Caper, News from Nowhere Bookshop and Zap Graffiti."
