Undeterred by the current climate, Lightopia Festival 2020 returns this Christmas to provide a little light at the end of a particularly dark year. Taking place between Friday 20 November 2020 and Sunday 3 January 2021, Manchester’s annual light festival invites visitors to explore an expansive and colourful world of illumination in the city’s ever-popular Heaton Park. Giant glowing mushrooms loom in the darkness, huge illuminated sculptures light up the night sky and a spiralling tunnel of light lures wide-eyed families deeper into the festival’s maze of luminosity. What’s more, with its airy location, Lightopia Festival has the added benefit of already being fairly socially distanced – however recent announcements suggest that he team behind the event have gone above and beyond to ensure 2020’s take over is a safe place for family visits. Tickets aren’t on sale just yet but you can sign up to their newsletter to be the first to find out when they’re released – and save 20% on early bird purchases.
