  • Leeds Light Night Guide 2019: Top Places to Visit and Suggest Route Plans

    The Leeds Light Festival 2019 is in its 15th year and its one of the most impressive light festivals in the world with 80,000 visitors. Here's what you can expect to see and ideas of where to go or plan your journey.

    Getting to Leeds Light Festival

    For a full list of transport options car parks click here

    If you are coming from the south or via M1 the Tetley car park is a good place to park since it means you don't have to go through all the traffic in Leeds Centre and everything is a short walk from there.

    Plan: Where to go at the Leeds Light Night: Top things to see

    If you're visiting the Light Night for the first time and want to know the best places to go here is a good route to follow to ensure you see the big attractions.

    The best exhibits will be centred around these areas so a good route might be to start at by a walk up the main street of Briggate and into the Victoria Quarter / Arcade Zone, then down The Headrow (Town Hall & Leeds Library for some warmth) and onto Millenium Square,  followed by City Square / Station Zone (projections onto the Queens Hotel) and across to Trinity Shopping centre followed before getting back to the bottom of Briggate.

    There will be timed shows as well as projections and art going on the whole time in all these areas along with market stalls and an array of street artists and performers. See below for the full list of events/shows. You can just walk around and see lots of different things going on almost everywhere you go on the route above.

    You can also take a free water taxi from Leeds Station (near the Hilton Hotel) to Leeds Dock (see the map for more info) and there are plenty of other venues from the First Direct Arena projecting special lights onto its roof to the Playhouse, Opera North to name a few. See the MAP below for the full list.

    The Leeds Light Night App / Paper Guide

    New this year in 2019 £1.99. Currently the app, although it helps contribute to event funding, its a little light on information and we found the website has a lot more useful information on it. However, to help keep the event free its well worth buying the paper guide book for Leeds Light night which has a lot of good info inside.

  • Halloween Ideas: Stand out this Halloween with the 5-in-1 Pico Genie Periscope Projector

    There are thousands of projectors out there to choose from these days that could spruce up your Halloween or other events but which one will offer good value and not just get chucked in a draw after first use and what content could you put on it various events?

    Ivest in the 5 in 1 Pico Genie Periscope Projector and use it all year round for all kinds of events from Halloween to New Year or any kind of party / holiday.

    Halloween Projector - Pico Genie Periscope

    The Pico Genie Periscope Speaker Projector stands out for parties since its really portable but has amazing speakers but its so easy to just switch the projector from wall to ceiling with its rotating lens.

    Here are 5 events with just one projector that are ideal for use with the Periscope to ensure you get your money's worth!

    Halloween –Have the house that really stands out in the neighbourhood this Halloween. Create holograms of ghosts, ghouls, goblins and project them on to windows, doorway or walls, to give your house a spooky look. To create these holographic images all you need is a dark room and some opaque sheeting (scrim, mosquito netting or material from your local fabric shop).

    See this idea being implemented on the Kirkcaldy Old Kirk Ghost Walk by here
