From a regionally renowned light festival and art exhibitions, to makers markets and creative workshops, artistic talent is being celebrated and encouraged at Royal William Yard this Autumn. A vast variety of events – many free to attend – are taking place over the coming weeks at one of Plymouth’s award winning cultural destinations.
This Autumn also marks the welcome return of the Illuminate Light Festival – and ticket are now available to book. The much-loved festival from Real Ideas is back with light art and immersive digital installations that will capture the imagination. A different format from before, this will be a two-week long programme with a jaw-dropping exhibition as well as a series of workshop sessions for all ages. This year, the event will have a theme, focusing on the climate crisis and how to activate change, and it will involve work from more local artists.
Hailey Cattle, Regional Marketing Manager for Urban Splash, said, “Get inspired, create, and celebrate the vibrant arts scene in this diverse and special place. Our monthly markets feature incredible artists and makers, so you can indulge in unique treats or snap up one-of-a-kind gifts. Whether you want to immerse yourself in the Illuminate experience, enjoy an exhibition or learn new artistic skills, we have you covered.”
