Longbridge Light Festival 2014, Back to the Future

Longbridge Light Festival (LLF) was created as part of Longbridge Public Art Project by WERK in celebration of the amazing history of Longbridge and its bright future through light and art.

LLF 2014 was attended by over 5,500 visitors who participated within a full evening programme; 21 site specific light and art installations co commissioned by Claire Farrell (WERK) and LLF guest curators Chris Poolman and Elizabeth Rowe including 20 fringe events with film screenings by Flatpack Film Festival, interactive workshops and sci fi cycling routes.

'...the atmosphere and positivity that could be felt in Longbridge town centre was amazing. Visitors were fully immersed in a journey of exploration across the site; an exploration of technology, interaction, imagination, regeneration and community, whilst never forgetting the physical, social and cultural history of the factory that once stood there. The perfect welcome back to Longbridge.' - Read a full review of Longbridge Light Festival by Rebekah Bainbridge here.

LLF will return again in October 2016!
