29th October - 1st November 2014
As the nights draw in, the ninth Illuminating York Festival will shine more brightly than ever before.
The Festival attracts more than 50,000 people to the city to experience York in a new light. Cutting-edge technology creates a colourful celebration of York’s unique heritage, from spectacular sites to hidden gems.
This year (2013), Illuminating York will spread right across the city centre with 11 brand new illuminating artworks, our biggest-ever Festival. A fantastic programme of Fringe events in the city’s top attractions means that you can enjoy the Festival over more than one evening, experiencing buildings and concerts by candlelight; tasting chocolate in the dark; seeing ‘Mallard’ and her sisters as never before; or uncovering some of our resident ghosts and ghouls.
For live information on the Festival, photos and associatedoffers in York’s restaurants and cafés, visit our website www.illuminatingyork.org or follow us on Twitter @illuminateyork #IY2013 or call in at Visit York’s Information Centre at 1 Museum Street, close to the Minster.
