Discover York in a new light!
Join National Holidays on an inclusive break to enjoy the sensational light displays that change the historic city of York from one of history, sight and culture to a night time extravaganza of stunning light shows and literally 1000’s of displays.
Now in its 11th year, the Festival was one of the first of its kind in the UK and it continues to pursue new ways of showing this beautiful historic city in a new light. The Festival celebrates light in all of its forms, from the flickering flame to the light emitting diode.
The festival brings to life famous sites as well as hidden gems and with brand new illuminating artworks and a fantastic programme of Fringe events across the city centre will be the best Illuminating York Festival.
The 2016 festival is being developed by the Artistic Directors, selecting artists to create new, bespoke artworks for each site and once again transforming York after dark.
