How students get involved in LightNight

LightNight is one of Liverpool’s biggest and most-loved cultural events with tens of thousands of visitors taking part in a range of activities across the city in just one night. As principal sponsor of LightNight, LJMU opened its doors to the public for an exciting and memorable night with a range of cultural and educational activities, exhibitions and performances. LJMU students were an integral part of the celebrations contributing their ideas, time and expertise to make the night a great success.

Students were involved in everything from lending their voices to play Dickens and other important figures in LJMU’s history for the Story of a Pioneering University exhibition to baking Fanny Calder’s surprisingly tasty War Cake. LightNight provides a great opportunity for students to take centre stage or work behind the scenes in events across the University, including dance and drama performances, and exhibitions and activities around fashion, art, film, poetry, science, sports, music and more. Watch the playlist above to find out how students got involved.
