A real hot air balloon lit up against the Bury night sky, a briar rose light show against the Castle Armoury, a magical enchanted winter garden at the Bury Library Gardens, lantern making at Bury Art Museum and a show called Spark, the Wizard at the Bury’s Gallipoli Gardens: There are only three days left to Bury Light Night, a visual explosion of family fun, lights and music in Bury town centre. Will you be there?
Bury is set to buzz with light and action as the third annual Bury Light Night comes to town on Friday 11 October.
Thousands of people are expected to visit once more and see the town centre in a whole new light, with a huge and eclectic mix of arts, music, performance and visual treats lined up with unusual and special events for all the family will take place against a backdrop of lit-up buildings and animated public spaces, mostly free, between 6pm and 9pm.
There will also be a tasty array of bustling markets and food and drink on offer, plus late shopping opportunities.
The action will take place across the town centre at the following venues:
* Bury Art Museum
* The Fusilier Museum and Tourist Information Centre
* The Met
* Castle Armoury
* Bury Transport Museum
* The Mill Gate Shopping Centre
* The Rock Shopping Centre
Weird and wonderful happenings can also be expected in the town’s public spaces, such as:
* Kay Gardens (outside the Bus and Rail Interchange)
* Library Gardens (Silver Street)
* Gallipoli Garden (Silver Street)
* Parish Church Gardens
* Lions Gardens (Crompton Street).
There is so much going on that you need to be sure to either download a copy of the Bury Light Programme at www.bury.gov.uk/burylightnight or pick up a printed version at Bury Tourist Information Centre, at Fusilier Museum in Moss Street to be sure you don’t miss out on what you want to see and do.
There is so much going on that it’s a shame it’s only on for one night, really.
