Beeston Street Art want to organise Beeston's very own own light night event this Autumn called #alightinBeeston to lift everyone's mood

In association with The Beeston and District Civic Society, the Beeston Street Art group on Facebook have organised over 30 art attractions in Beeston, Nottingham since 2018.  These colourful artworks have brought much joy during recent dark times and breathed life into our community and high street.

When the clocks change this autumn and we lose our daylight again, we would like to bring an extra lift and another type of art attraction to our town - a light night event called #alightinBeeston for which we have created another Facebook group.

We would like to buy a permanent neon style light installation to be hung by Broxtowe Council and also host a light night event incorporating projecting community made creative films on this building facing the trams and buses' route through our town.

We also hope to attract local light artists to display temporary installation works around the town centre, in the square and in Beeston Parish Churchyard.

The more money we raise the more we can do.

I hope you will support this new attraction idea, which will be free for everyone to enjoy - if you just donate the cost of a coffee each, we can bring another much needed creative boost to Beeston.

Best wishes,

Jeanie and the team.
