This event has no upcoming dates

    Enlighten Bury

    Light it up

    Bury’s annual light festival has a new lease of life thanks to the efforts of Bury Art Museum and Sculpture Centre partnered with local event organisers Curated Place! We are proud to welcome Enlighten Bury to the area’s calendar of offerings, an inspiring new sound and light festival that re-invents the experience of Light Night.

    Take in an astonishing array of interactive light and sound installations that blend together to bring the streets, venues, galleries and bars of Bury’s cultural quarter to life, all set to a soundtrack of experimental world music. Features include music and audio/visual performances ffom Hannah Peel, Plaid and more as well as visual art interactives from BAFTA-winning Seb Lee-Delise, Felix Thorn and The Owl Project to name but a few.

    Installations, the light walk and The Met performances are free. Music concerts in Bury Transport Museum and the Parish Church require tickets. For more information and to find out how to book tickets visit
