Laser Light City – lighting up the sky in Leeds Oct 22 – 24

In 2020 Light Night Leeds is taking to the skies! Laser Light City, designed by BAFTA award-winning artist Seb Lee-Delisle, is a one-of-a-kind interactive laser show coming to the Leeds skyline on the nights of 22nd, 23rd and 24th October.  The lights can be enjoyed either in person, at home, or via the online live stream, and seen for miles.

There are going to be seven different sites around the city and 24 powerful lasers mounted on roofs, or in some cases, projecting out of windows, just filling the skies with laser beams. And if you have a smartphone you could even get a chance to control the lights via a link on the website.

You can find all the details and how to take part here  and there will be a link on this site when the event starts to take you to the livestream

This spectacular display is the first of a series of events through Autumn and Winter

Laser Light City can be enjoyed by all ages and from wherever you are. The lasers can be seen from anywhere in the greater Leeds area; it’s best if you have a direct view of the city but you will also see them across the sky from your gardens and windows. If you need a closer view, you can watch the livestream of the lasers on the website.
