7:01pm Tuesday 29th October 2013 in News
YORK’S historic streets and buildings will be transformed after dark with its most ambitious light festival to date.
Illuminating York will this year honour its Viking history as the city celebrates 1,000 years since the first Danish King of England landed.
Some of the highlights of the festival include a light projection and soundscape projected onto Clifford’s Tower and an animation, entitled The Storyteller, projected in the city’s Museum Gardens. York Minster and the National Railway Museum will also be taking part, with the railway attraction lighting up the Mallard and its sister engines for The Autumn Great Gathering.
The festival also involves some free light and fire attractions taking place across the city. The festival runs from October 30 until November 2, from 6pm to 10pm, daily.
