With the theme of love and belonging, the festival celebrates art and innovation in Norwich city centre during Valentine's weekend. Expect to see an illuminating trail of light art works, extraordinary installations, stunning performances and interventions providing a captivating trail of discovery, accessible to all and free to attend.
Featuring UK and international artists the Festival will transform the city against a backdrop of Norwich's renowned medieval architecture and landmarks.
Love Light Norwich Festival Artistic Director, Alex Rinsler, is known internationally for creating large-scale outdoor sculptures and spectacles and is no stranger to making an impact.
Communities and celebration are at the heart of Alex's work; he launched the Lightpool Festival in Blackpool, awarded the Large Tourism Event award at the Lancashire Tourism Awards in 2017.
Alex said, “It's fantastic that Love Light Norwich will launch in February, with support of public funding from Arts Council England. The Valentine's weekend can be a time when people feel isolated, as well as in love. We want to create an event that will welcome everyone and speak to Norwich's unique heritage and unparalleled architectural richness”.
Love Light will take place over three nights between 13 - 15 February 2020.
Love Light Norwich Festival is supported using public funding by Arts Council England and sponsored by Norwich City Council, Norfolk County Council, The Forum Trust and Aviva. #LoveLightNorwich
