Medway Light Nights Festival 11 & 12 February 2022

Medway Light Nights

Medway Light Nights is a free spectacular festival of light which will transform Historic Rochester’s iconic buildings and spaces into works of art on Friday and Saturday, 11 and 12 February 2022. 

Medway Council, in partnership with Emergency Exit Arts, has commissioned local, national and internationally-renowned artists, to work alongside our young people and communities, to deliver an incredible event. 

  • Time and Date: Friday, 11 and Saturday, 12 February 6pm-9pm
  • Location: Rochester High Street and surrounding areas

Architectural Visualisation students from the School of Architecture and Planning at The University of Kent have created Illuminarealities, an art installation divided into two parts: one on the Six Poor Travellers’ House, and one at the front of Rochester Cathedral.

Feeding from the stories and messages from Charles Dickens’ literature, Illuminarealities aims to combine light and architecture, creating a fusion of the two. Animating architecture with the history, culture and art of Rochester, students explore this most public of augmented realities in three ways: creating passive, physical and metaphysical interactions. 

Booking not necessary, just turn up!
