Leeds’ love of cycling will be highlighted as the city is illuminated for the annual Leeds Light Night festival.

Tomorrow night over 50 bike riders decorated in glow sticks, lights and lit up carnival costumes will take to the Cycle Superhighway and head for Leeds city centre before completing the Light Triathlon along with walkers and runners.

This is one of just 50 events across the city which includes light projections, film, dance, music, theatre, exhibitions and street performances at various locations around the city.

Thursday offers lots for families to enjoy, including a Lantern Parade, plus 90 giant glowing dandelions to walk amongst in Merrion Gardens.

Light Night continues on Friday with local and international artists transforming iconic buildings and spaces around the city, including a 100ft digital waterfall on the Queens’ Hotel.

Leeds City Council has been organising the event for 12 years and the centrepiece show which is the Phoenix in the Stone, can be seen on both nights on the Civic Hall in Millennium Square.
