About Bristol Light Festival

Bristol Light Festival is a free to attend event that fills the city with light and colour, showcasing Bristol as the vibrant, playful and creative city that we know and love.

Each edition of Bristol Light Festival feature world premier works alongside some of the best of the UK’s talent, all making their Bristol debut at carefully selected locations across the city centre. Visitors can wander and explore the city’s streets to see the light art works come to life and enjoy Bristol’s wonderful retail and hospitality businesses along the way.

Bristol Light Festival appears along some of the city centre’s well-trodden paths as well as in some unexpected locations. At each spot visitors will be able to see, experience and play with installations that are visiting the South West.

The event is the perfect opportunity for friends, colleagues, and families to meet for an evening in Bristol. All Bristol Light Festival events are open to everyone across the full duration. We can’t wait to welcome you to explore Bristol through light.
