Ambitious light installations require energy. In order to minimise the ecological impact that Longbridge Light Festival has on our planet we are committed to making our installations as energy efficient as possible.

Mains power will be used in preference to portable electricity generators where possible. We are encouraging residents, businesses and visitors to the festival to remember to switch off all their house and office lights to save power. We are also working with Longbridge Town Centre businesses to reduce their lighting to save power and to allow the installations to shine brighter.

Artworks and equipment will be transported in combined loads to reduce the number of vehicles on the roads. Contractors and suppliers based in or close to Longbridge or Birmingham will be employed to reduce travel.

Audiences are encouraged to use public transport to get around during the festival. To find out more about visiting Longbridge by public transport please click here.
