"The UK’s largest annual light art festival will be back, and although there will be a slightly reduced programme due to current restrictions, we will once again be shining a light on our amazing city with a whole host of spectacular artworks.

"We’ll have more information for you over the coming weeks including; this year’s theme, sneak peeks at our amazing design work from Lee Goater, a look at which festival partners are supporting this year’s event and, of course, news on what artworks will be featured at this year’s festival.

"So make sure you are following us for all the updates and we can’t wait to see you in the autumn."

Last year, the event was slightly different due to the pandemic.

Instead of the usual art installations across the city, people were invited to get involved with Laser Light City.

The people of Leeds were the chance to take control of the pattern and colour of the crisscrossing beams of light that shone from the rooftops of seven buildings, including Bridgewater Place and the Parkinson.
