Light Nelson charmed and enthralled 55,000 people over five nights
of blessedly perfect winter weather.

The city has embraced Light Nelson, it puts a little bit of magic into people’s lives in the mid-winter. As a community, we can’t underestimate the importance of people coming out to share an experience and to talk to each other; or the opportunity for absolutely everyone to engage with the arts in a way that is totally accessible and non-threatening.

Thanks to all our artists and their teams, sponsors, volunteers, Luminaries, supporters and you the public -
we couldn't do it without you.

The Light Nelson event will be back in 2018 but Light Nelson doesn't sleep.
