York comes alive with Creatures of The Shadows

The BID's first Halloween event saw two sites in York come alive with creepy creatures emerging from the shadows over three nights during October half term. The dynamic projections at Castle Museum and York Explore Library saw spiders, wolves, dragons and a host of other creatures crawling, fighting and menacing on the building facades.

The projections, coupled with sound and smoke effects, used multiple projectors and technology usually reserved for indoor venues. The free event added a new attraction for visitors to the city during the Halloween period.


The dynamic projections are the product of a collaboration between the BID and Harrogate-based digital projection company Polestar Productions.
