It's back for 2024 with more lasers, more locations and even more entertainment, for you to get out and enjoy!
Light Night is back, and this year, it’s returning with more dates, lasers and locations!
The 3-hour laser light show will take place between Monday 26th, February and Sunday 3rd, March, and it will be free to view from multiple locations throughout the Yorkshire Coast.
You can download the Light Night Radio App so you can listen to the newly produced soundtrack while watching the lasers, which adds a whole new dimension to the show!
The lasers will be hosted at:
Whitby Abbey, Whitby: The gothic abbey that once inspired Bram Stoker’s Dracula is the perfect location for the lasers, with great viewing points from West Cliff.
Raven Hall Hotel, Ravenscar: Located in one of the most scenic areas of the Dinosaur coastline, this stately hotel and grounds provide the perfect backdrop for the lasers, with the added benefit that residents of Robin Hood’s Bay will have a perfect view of them from multiple locations in the village.
South Bay, Scarborough: In the heart of the harbour, the lasers will be beamed from Sea Grown and The Esplanade Hotel overlooking Valley Bridge, championing the heritage, industry and eco credentials of the town.
The Chalk Tower, Flamborough: Standing proudly in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it is described as England’s oldest surviving lighthouse. This iconic building, set amongst the golf club grounds, is perfect for gathering by to see the sights.
The Lodge, Bridlington: No seafront is complete without the bright lights of the amusements, and this new location will see the lasers mounted to the roof, providing a sensational vantage point of the show over towards Sewerby. This will be combined with a one-of-a-kind event on Saturday (more details below).
The Promenade, Withernsea: The show will be visible from the promenade, located not far from the fishing compound, to highlight the fishing industry on the Yorkshire Coast and what it contributes to the community.
The Royal Hotel, Whitby
With a clear line of sight from their lounge and rooms across to Whitby Abbey, this is one of the best indoor venues to see the show fully without having to wrap up warm!
The Victoria Hotel, Robin Hood’s Bay
Think music, cocktails and a seasonal menu, all with the added benefit of their conservatory windows giving you premier views across to Ravenscar, a new location for this year’s Light Night shows.
The Grand Hotel, Scarborough
An iconic hotel with an amazing balcony overlooking South Bay makes this one of the hidden gem viewing locations in Scarborough. The bar is open to the public so that you can grab a drink, head to the balcony, and watch the show whilst listening to the soundscore via the Light Night App.
The Esplanade Hotel, Scarborough
Set above the Victorian landmark that is Valley Bridge is The Esplanade Hotel, whose balcony will be the host of the second laser location. This area will give a different vantage to The Grand as you can get a full view of the harbour and the show being displayed from there.
Flamborough Head Golf Club, Flamborough
The Chalk Tower is the inspiration and backdrop to the lasers, and the perfect venue to watch it from is the golf club’s Club House. With various drinks and entertainment, this is a top choice for anyone wanting to view this alternative location.
The Forum, Bridlington
This year, we have teamed up with The Lodge in the Forum to not only host our laser show from their room but also to create a one-of-a-kind night of music. The Saturday night will see the 2024 Drum and Base finalists and other DJs create a night to remember. This is a ticketed event, so book early so you don’t miss out!
