Light Night Leeds needs volunteers

If you'd like to help out at this year's Light Night Leeds on 5-6 October, get in touch with Leeds City Council's volunteer coordinators.


For two nights in early October Leeds' arts and cultural venues open their doors late into the evening and artists transform indoor and outdoor spaces into exciting, interactive works or art.

This year's festival will take place 6pm–11pm on Thursday 5 - Friday 6 October 2017.

Being such a large city-wide event, which is increasing in popularity year on year, Light Night relies on a large number of volunteers. The role of a Light Night Festival Volunteer will involve a number of different duties, and opportunities may vary depending on what this year’s Light Night priorities are. You may be asked to assist an artist, undertake market research, or work as a visitor assistant.

If you are:

  • interested in volunteering
  • free on Thursday 28 September for a training induction
  • over 18

the organisers want to hear from you.

As a thank you for donating your time, you will receive a Light Night tote bag and a ticket to see a film at Leeds Town Hall as part of the Leeds International Film Festival.

Contact Leeds City Council's Volunteer Coordinator, Georgina Booth at for further information and to request an application form.
