The Festival of Light comes to Cambridge again, and it’s better and brighter than ever
E-Luminate is back and once again it promises to be spectacular. Running from 12 to 17 February, this unique festival will set our city ablaze in a riot of beautiful light installations and activities, many of which are free to attend. Highlights this year include a night-time arts and crafts market for the launch on 12 February, an interactive installation outside the Fitzwilliam Museum and a light show projected onto Senate House.
For a real treat, get a ticket for the Trail of Light on 13 February. Starting at St Catharine’s College Porter’s Lodge at 4.30pm and 5.15pm, this consists of a walk through selected college chapels and a mini-concert in each. Participants are given their own LED light, becoming part of a moving art installation. The event ends with a drinks reception at Pembroke College. Tickets start at £11.74. Early booking advised.
