Bury Light Night announces packed agenda

Press Release   •   Oct 03, 2012 10:23 BST

Organisers of this year’s Bury Light Night are advising visitors to start planning their evening’s entertainment as the itinerary is now online.

More than ten thousand people flocked to Light Night last year and it’s hoped that this year (20 October) even more will come along once they know what’s in store. The free family event is open to everyone and because much of it happens on the streets, is very accessible.

 Councillor Jane Lewis, cabinet member for leisure, tourism and culture, said: “Last year, as it was the first time we’d taken part in Light Night, it was a bit of an unknown quantity but we were blown away with how well it was received. We have had loads of positive feedback via our Twitter and Facebook feeds and lots of people have told us that they are planning to come again this year.”

 Once again there will be a selection of market stalls selling handmade wares such as bags, fashion, photography, jewellery and glassware. For the hungry visitor, tasty treats include crepes, cupcakes, and English, Thai, Spanish, Indian, Greek and Chinese food.

 The online brochure can be found at and Facebook. The final hard copy will be going to print on Monday and will be available throughout the town centre from the end of next week.
