Festival of Lights
Its that time already and we are well underway with the planning for this years Festival of Lights, with lots of exciting events lined up. The Street Party is June 23rd so save the date!!
The Street Party is again going to be a night to remember, with Our own Parade, Food Stalls, Live music from The Eastern, Mundi, and The Settlers on the Main stage, Entertainment throughout the night on the Albion Square stage and Colletts corner and the much lovedLyttelton Port of Christchurch Fireworks display.
Throughout the week of The Lyttelton Harbour Festival of Lights, light art installations will pop up in and around Lyttelton. Following on from our exciting and successful first time last year, LIGHT.CREATIVITY.CELEBRATION is back with light-related art works being created and exhibited around Lyttelton. These include artworks in alleyways, shop-fronts, and projections onto buildings and other locations.
We are pleased to announce the return of the popular Creative Sampler to the Festival of Lights programme this year. This event is a combined effort between the Lyttelton Harbour Timebank and Project Lyttelton’s Events Team. As the days grow shorter and the nights draw in what a perfect time to open wide our creativity and make or create things together! The event was run for the first time as part of Projects Lyttelton’s Lyttelton Summerfest in February of this year. It was a great success.
The first event in February was so well received. Its success lay in its truly collaborative and simple nature. From tutors to workshop attendees, (time bankers and non time bankers) to organisers we all pitched in, it was magic, we want to create this again. Timebank members will be able to pay with timebank credits to attend the workshops and non timebank members will be asked to pay a koha.
So please join for the Lyttelton Harbour Festival of Lights and enjoy our exciting week of events!
