SPECTRA – Aberdeen’s Festival of Light 2016


Running for four nights, SPECTRA, Aberdeen’s stunning Festival of Light, will return to celebrate the Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design through the theme of a ‘Spark of Inspiration’.

Bringing leading international artists together with established Scottish collaborators, the festival will deliver a four day light spectacular spanning Union Terrace Gardens to the Kirk of St Nicholas graveyard and into the Granite City’s prominent Marischal College.

Featuring major public realm and gallery installations alongside new experimental works from the North East’s creative community, the festival will enliven the city and celebrate Aberdeen’s creative past, present and future. Inviting audiences to engage with playful, accessible and high quality performances, spaces and works of art that marry light, sound and interactive experiences, SPECTRA 2016 will be an exciting family event bringing light to the depths of winter.
