Watch the city glisten and glow as Light Night Stoke-on-Trent promises to magnificently transforms Burslem Town Centre over three evenings from Thursday 31 January to Saturday 2 February 2019 discover the city as never before.
Light Night Stoke-on-Trent will see Burslem Town Centre spectacularly lit up as a programme of light artworks, projections and illuminated performances take over the town centre’s buildings and streets. Created by a host of local, national and international artists, Light Night Stoke-on-Trent is a free event that will transform Burslem Town Centre with an experience suitable for all ages. A new Light Night Challenge will also be in place across the city which all local residents, community groups and businesses are encouraged to take part in.
Installations audiences can enjoy will include a large-scale animated projection by projection experts Illuminos. A heritage building in Burslem will become the backdrop for the projected artwork by Illuminos who have lit up buildings around the globe. Accompanied by live music from a local choir, the animated projection will bring to life a story about the past and the future of the city.
Performances visitors can enjoy will include a night-time procession, Sense of Unity. A glowing parade led by a giant illuminated puppet and accompanied by an LED-lit percussion ensemble, Worldbeaters, has been wowing crowds across the world and now makes its way to Stoke-on-Trent.
Visitors will also be treated to a series of hand-crafted fire sculptures as pyrotechnic experts Walk the Plank transform a corner of the town centre with some fiery creations. Residents may recall Walk the Plank’s fiery maze The Fire Garden, which stunned audiences in 2015 when we presented it in Hanley Park.
