Light Up The Streets

Lighting Up Lancaster

Fri 1 Nov, 6.30pm-9.30pm

Light Up The Streets

See the city in a whole new light this autumn with a week of events celebrating Lancaster’s buildings and open spaces. The Friday night will see More Music working with all the other local arts organisations to create LIGHT UP THE STREETS.
 
Take a stroll through the city for a unique night-time art experience animating the beautiful buildings and squares. Discover new stories along the trail, with a string of music, dance, theatre and film events.

 

What will be happening?  

TOWER OF SALVATION
Dalton Square
A scaffolded tower reaches to the skies - discarded metals born again. Help us voice the clanging joy of their salvation. Or just watch & listen in awe. 
With More Music musicians Steve Lewis, Nick Cooper and Chris Bridges
 

GRAIN OF TRUTH
Marketgate
A continuous performance from More Music’s Long Walk Chinese Orchestra in a provocative environment designed by Paul Kondras. Watch the falling 500,000 grains of rice
Musical Director – Rick Middleton
Special Guest on Chinese Flute - Guo Yue

WANDERING OF SOULS
Sun Square
Watch it from outside or come into the tent as a special guest. Explore tales of Lancaster’s history and the mystery of why we return.
Music, films and images created by Rachel Parsons and Ashley Murphy working with More Music Youth Leaders

THE RULE OF LAW
Judges Lodgings
Voices ring out and reflect on the rulings of the historic court and human rights in the Lancaster district. Animated Illuminations light up 16 windows of this inspiring heritage building.

Images created with Anna Read and music composed by Pete Moser and Serge Tebu all working with students at Morecambe High School.

BAYBEAT STREETBAND
Hear them coming with their grooves and tunes. See them dancing with their light sabre flags. More Music’s funky streetband carves its way through the city. Bandleaders Ben McCabe and Matt Robinson.
