Lyttelton Harbour Festival of Lights cancelled for 2019
After 14 fabulous years of events and many fond memories it is with some sadness we announce that the Lyttelton Harbour Festival of Lights will be no more.
Yes, we are pulling the plug and the Festival of Lights will not go ahead in 2019.
Thank you to all the people who have supported this event, especially our major sponsors CCC and Lyttelton Port Company. With significant outside attendance increasing each year the event costs have escalated and the human resources required are significant. In light of this Project Lyttelton has made the difficult decision to refocus those resources more widely for greater community benefit.
Planning for a brand new midwinter series of community-based events is underway with a local feel and the development of a new "midwinter precinct”. There are loads of opportunities for local helpers and creatives to get involved in shaping the midwinter celebrations so they truly reflect our wonderful community.
