Explore Bristol Through Light

Showcasing the city at its brightest, Bristol Light Festival brings light, fun and colour to the city centre across a free, city-wide celebration.

Established in 2020, the festival showcases Bristol as the vibrant, playful and creative city that we know and love, offering artists a platform to showcase their work at locations across the city. Each edition celebrates artistic freedom and experimentation, featuring world-premier works alongside some of the best local, national, and international talent.

We invite visitors to explore the city’s popular and lesser-known paths, uncovering a new light of Bristol with every visit.

Bristol Light Festival is a firm fixture on the Bristol event calendar, where 2024 saw 275,000 visitors across 10 dazzling evenings. Our fifth edition is coming in 2025. Stay up to date with the latest updates by signing up to our newsletter.
