Light Nelson 2018 logo

Light Nelson is a free festival of light that is set to brighten up the Nelson winter from the 6 – 10 July 2018.

The event is a collaboration of art, science, design and technology in works that respond to darkness through illuminated installations. It offers a spectacular outdoor gallery of works set in the historic Queens Gardens, Albion Square, NMIT and surrounds.

Light Nelson is an irresistible mix: a garden walk in the clear dark night of winter with magical moments of illusion, beauty, interaction and fun.
