Light Up Lancaster

Lancaster has long had an impressive annual firework display. Having said that, it’s a long time since I witnessed it myself, so I’m assuming that it’s still at least as good as it used to be. Recently, the show has been preceded by Light Up Lancaster which brings various light related street performances and artworks to the city centre. We chose to watch the fireworks in Arnside again this year, but Light up Lancaster was on for two nights, so had a chance to see that too.

The lights on these structures, which had come from China apparently, were constantly changing.

At the Castle there was a show projected onto a large wall, featuring recorded music and a live choir.

And at the Judge’s Lodgings…

…something similar but projected only on to the windows.

This may have been my favourite.

There were a number of things to see at the Library, mostly with a science theme. Here, A and Little S have made models of dynamite molecules…

Vying with the Judge’s Lodges, in my opinion, for top spot in the show were the two huge lighted kites flying above Dalton Square…

…which changed colour as they moved.

An unusual evening’s entertainment!

      Because it was a moving display it was almost impossible to capture in a still, but clouds streaming across the windows, or the house apparently filling with smarties etc etc, it was very entertaining.
