Festival of Light is Huddersfields biggest winter event, featuring a major street theatre show in St George's Square and a lively programme of performances and installations across the town centre.
The main show, K@osmos, comes courtesy of Spanish/Argentinean performers Grupo Puja and will be performed on both the Friday and Saturday evenings. Come to the festival and you will also enjoy aerial ballet, an enchanting light garden and be entertained by some of the UK's best street performers.
And, as well as street theatre, there was a winter food and drink market, The Art Market and an abundance of live music performances in bars and venues across the town centre.
"One of the great pleasures of Street Arts festivals is that they make you slow down and put the wonder back into everyday life. Wherever you were in Winchester at this year's Hat Fair, you could hear the distant sound of laughter - as if the whole town was smiling together."
