Salford Quays - Lightwaves 2016

  • to
  • BBC Media City

    Salford, M50 2EQ (map)

    53.474102 -2.297635

  • We'll meet at the Media City tram stop, just by the Big Screen!
  • "Following on from the success of last year, Lightwaves will be returning to Salford Quays/MediaCityUK from 9th– 18th December this year and as always, everything will be free! Featuring a brand new large-scale commission, exciting new work from emerging artists, presentations of incredible work from across the globe, and exciting workshops, Lightwaves 2016 will illuminate The Quays once more and bring light to those dark winter nights."

    This sounds like a incredible photo opportunity, so who's in?! As this event is bound to attract hundreds of people it may be difficult to keep the group together, however we'll try to keep it as a simple format and you don't have to worry about sticking together if you want to go off and shoot your own thing.

    THIS EVENT IS FREE, but be warned: IT WILL BE COLD!
