LightNight Liverpool reveals home is where the art is
LightNight Liverpool returns to city streets and venues this May with the 2020 theme being Home.
Dozens of organisations and individuals will be involved in staging more than 100 events and activities during the after-hours celebration of arts and culture which attracts thousands of people each year.
This year's LightNight takes place on Friday, May 15.
Home is many things; our planet, our family, our community. Most of all, it's a sense of belonging. But in a world full of barriers to belonging, where millions are displaced or homeless and the future of our very planet is in danger, where and how do we find home?
Christina Grogan, director of social enterprise Open Culture – producers of LightNight - says: “We’re so grateful to be taking LightNight into its second decade with this year’s programme exploring the idea of Home.

“We feel there’s no more pertinent time to have an open and creative conversation about what it means to feel at home, as the world becomes increasingly divided and barriers to feeling like you belong exist at every turn.
“This LightNight we invite everyone to come and feel at home in Liverpool city centre.”
The event is sponsored by Liverpool John Moores University and Liverpool BID company.
LightNight, now in its 11th year, covers a host of areas of the city centre from the Waterfront to St George’s Quarter and the Baltic to Hope Street and events are generally free.
The full 2020 programme will be revealed on April 2.
