LightNight Friday 17th May ….the ultimate To-Do List!
A jam-packed programme of cultural events will illuminate this city on the night, but I hope to illuminate my stomach first at the…. mouth watering-mix of culinary delights on offer in the restaurants, bars, hotels, and coffee shops from the Commercial District BID, hosting their Food and Drink Festival at Exchange Flags Square.
This will be my first stop to replenish the parts…..after a busy week, then there will be entertainment by RARE Studio and choirs singng from the balcony of the Town Hall to serenade all the connoisseurs of good food.
After last years LightNight travels, I’ve found that to reap the delights of the night, you need to be well planned and well timed in the events to enjoy it to the full.
The Black-E, Great George Street hosts carnival time with the fun loving Movema, Airborn and Brazuka, bringing you Brazilian samba drumming, acrobatic tricks and dance moves from around the world.
I might even throw in a ‘memory’ at the Transition of a Memory Workshop, if I remember.
A quick trip to the Candle-Lit-Labyrinth at the Anglican Cathedral will be relaxing before the next hike.
Next, a trek down Seel Street, through China Town and on to meet ‘Bookworm’ at Art House Square (near Fact) then into Fact for a glass of wine and a quick chill and another exhibition.
After a breather there, onto Wolstenholm Creative Space for ‘Drop the Dumbells’ then to The Bluecoat to enjoy all the free art offerings for the girls to upskill on.
Finally, we will end the night as always with an exotic coffee at Lunya and some Catalan fusion deli, washed down with a Spanish cava and a late night brandy with excellent conversation about the nights offering.
We always meet old friends and end up networking on these nights so if you are around….follow us on this night of adventure and ‘Do something different on a Friday night’
