Colour & Light 

Colour & Light has enjoyed another successful year!

Colour & Light 2024 ran from 7th - 25th February 2024. The project transformed part of the city with a vibrant light display during the colder winter months, creating a magical and memorable experience for visitors and residents alike, with over 35,000 audience members enjoying the show!

Colour & Light is a high impact and large-scale visual arts project, using 3D projection mapping to bring York’s iconic buildings to life. The project launched in 2023 at York Minster and celebrates the city’s UNESCO Media Arts status.

In 2024, York BID worked with York Museums Trust to illuminate the façade of York Art Gallery.

Colour & Light 2024 was proudly brought to you by York BID, in collaboration with York Art Gallery, Double Take Projections, and lead funding partner LNER. Supported by HSBC and City Cruises.
