A BIG THANKS

Bright Nights is produced by Gloucester City Council, but lighting up Gloucester over the last few years wouldn't have been possible without the kind support of Arts Council England, Gloucester BID, Unlimited and FESTIVAL.ORG who have helped fund the programme.

A massive thank you to our partners Llanthony Secunda Priory, Blackfriars Priory, Strike A Light, Historic England, Gloucester Guildhall, Gloucester Cathedral, Your Next Move and Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust who played a massive part in the hosting of our 2021 & 2022 Bright Nights Festivals.

The original festival concept was created by Gloucester Culture Trust who supported the programme in its early stages, bringing partners together to make it happen for Gloucester.

We are extremely grateful to everyone who has supported Bright Nights.
