LightNight will provide visitors with the opportunity to see first-hand how Sensor City is helping partners to capitalise on the growing sensor revolution and to hear directly from SMEs who have been able to develop concepts into prototypes with speed and accuracy.

There will be lots of equipment on show including 3D printers, infrared and high speed cameras, microscopes and Virtual Reality headsets. We will also be showcasing the latest technological innovations that our in-house engineering team, University partners and SME community are developing.

Take part in sensor-based games, watch live theatrical performances, and enjoy a drink while admiring the illuminated Liverpool skyline from our top floor, panoramic roof terrace.

This event is part of the ninth annual LightNight Liverpool, the free one-night arts festival, which is taking place on Friday 18 May 2018, from 5-11pm.

LightNight showcases the creative lifeblood of Liverpool, presenting new and ambitious artistic commissions amidst a vibrant programme of more than 100 events including everything from concerts, exhibitions, hands-on workshops and dance to street performance, theatre and talks.

It’s the perfect chance to enjoy the bustling atmosphere and experience the city’s cultural offer after-hours with friends and family.

This LightNight we will question and reflect upon the transformative nature of the self and the world around us. Understood as a significant change in people or place, ‘transformation’ is happening all around us: visible or invisible, turbulent and political, personal and emotional.

LightNight Liverpool is produced by local social enterprise Open Culture.

​Festival guides can be purchased from selected venues across the city centre ​1-18 May, or ordered online at
