The waiting is finally over – tonight’s the night when Leeds turns the spotlight on the very best its cultural scene has to offer.
This year’s Light Night extravaganza will see more than 30 venues in the city centre hosting a wide range of arts events from 5pm until late.
And, here at the Yorkshire Evening Post, we want our readers to let us know what the high points of the celebration prove to be.
Perhaps it will be the transformation of Leeds Civic Hall into a giant animated clock thanks to a light installation by artist group Illuminos?
Or maybe the favourite will be one of the many street theatre and music performances taking place in areas such as Boar Lane, Victoria Gardens, The Headrow and Briggate?

Light Night is being staged by Leeds City Council’s arts department in partnership with a whole host of local organisations.
Looking ahead earlier this week to the evening’s fun, the council’s executive member for leisure and skills, Coun Lucinda Yeadon, said: “The programme for this year’s Light Night is again superb, and I can’t wait to see some of our city centre’s most recognised buildings and open spaces hosting a wide-range of unique events.
“There really is something for people of all ages to enjoy, with the centrepiece event being the spectacular transformation of Leeds Civic Hall into a giant traditional clock. I would recommend to anyone wishing to take part in Light Night to look at the programme beforehand and plan their route around the city centre.” For more details, visit the www.lightnightleeds.co.uk website.
The Illuminos group’s light installation at Leeds Civic Hall will run from 7.30pm to 10.30pm tonight.
It also took place last night and will be repeated tomorrow evening.
