Pleasance by Novak is a 35-metre long street projection.

Pleasance by Novak is a multi-sensory animated light sequence and inspired by Aire Park, a development by Light Night Leeds headline sponsor Vastint UK.

Projected onto the street directly in front of the iconic Tetley Brewery building, the family-friendly installation has a bold and colourful design with visuals and sounds inspired by the hundreds of new trees, acres of green space, new homes, offices, restaurants and cafes that will bring the South Bank to life.

Light Night Leeds is taking place on Thursday, October 10 and Friday, October 11, from 6pm until 11pm.

Aire Park will be a phased development, with the first stage of construction due to commence mid-2020.
