Light Night is a late evening celebration of culture in Liverpool. Galleries, museums, and cultural institutions open up their doors to installations and performances, with street theatre and music, the event proved popular with visitors. I was shooting for news agencies, so it was nice being able to have a good wander around, with an open ended brief and with family in tow I covered the earlier and children friendly events, which were all great. Anyway a few highlights below. As always, please ask me first, if you would like to use any images and of course all are available for commercial licence.
