This was a fantastic idea to highlight great lighting in amazing locations.
One night did not give the impact of the idea enough time for people to view and understand what this was about.
Greater publicity coverage would have been gained if it had stayed in place for at least a week. I would have certainly travelled to see at least one of them had I known.
Lets push to make this an annual event at different locations, but give people a real chance to see these and be impressed.
The Society of Light and Lighting, along with CIBSE celebrate the International Year of Light by illuminating some of the UK’s most iconic locations. On 1 October, in an event designed to showcase the talents of SLL members and the lighting community, teams of dedicated lighting designers shone a ‘new light’ on UNESCO World Heritage Sites across the UK aimed at promoting lighting as both an art form and a science. Starting at William the Conqueror’s Tower of London, the Night of Heritage Light worked its way up the country as the natural light faded. For one night only, experts in the field of lighting put their designs on display to demonstrate the power of light. Other heritage sites include Edinburgh Old and New Towns, Fountains Abbey, Liverpool Maritime Graving Dock, Pontcysyllte Aquaduct, Ironbridge Gorge, Blenheim Palace, Blaenavon, Jurassic Coast
