LLF 2014 was attended by over 5,500 visitors who explored public spaces and multiple venues across Longbridge. The 2014 theme 'Back to the Future' was created by LLF guest curators General Public. General Public and Claire Farrell (WERK) co-commissioned 21 site-specific light and art installations by artists based in the West Midlands, elsewhere in the UK and Europe. The festival programme included over 20 fringe events with film screenings by Flatpack Film Festival, interactive workshops and sci-fi cycling routes.
'...the atmosphere and positivity that could be felt in Longbridge town centre was amazing. Visitors were fully immersed in a journey of exploration across the site; an exploration of technology, interaction, imagination, regeneration and community, whilst never forgetting the physical, social and cultural history of the factory that once stood there. The perfect welcome back to Longbridge.' - Read a full review of Longbridge Light Festival by Rebekah Bainbridge here.
