Help the DN Festival of Light to sparkle this year

Right Up Our Street are today, 25th September, launching a fundraising drive to help them to bring the DN Festival of Light back to Doncaster Minster. 

Last year, the winter festival, which saw Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon in pride of place in Doncaster Minster, was launched with an opening ‘DN Light Night’.

Sally Lockey, project director of Right Up Our Street explains: “The DN Festival of Light celebrates the diversity of our town by bringing different communities together in one space to engage in the arts and culture.

“Last year we brought Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon to Doncaster and more than16,000 people walked through the doors of the Minster to see the Moon for our weeklong free event.

“On our grand opening, we had a spectacular ‘DN Light Night’ which lit up not only the grounds of the Minster but also the faces of our audiences - with interactive light installations and performances.

“This year we'd love to do it ALL again, but we need your help! 

“We are now fundraising to bring Doncaster another DN Light Night. Every donation will go towards scheduling art and activities that will make the event even better (and brighter) than last year!” 

Right Up Our Street is a network of people working across the borough of Doncaster to make art and performance happen in surprising and exciting ways.

“As a thank you to all of our backers, you will be given the first opportunity to secure your entrance to the Minster on Light Night, ensuring you have the full experience of the night that could not happen without your help.

“If we are successful in this campaign, we'd like to supersede last year’s magic light wonderland and bring an even better DN Light Night to Doncaster’s doorstep.

“We’re really excited about what we have planned this year, but we need the help of the community of Doncaster to make it happen,” added Sally.

Right Up Our Street need to reach their goal of £11,000 by November 2nd to be successful in their crowdfunding.

Donations can be from as little as £2 to create a spectacular and memorable event for Doncaster.
