Play giant illuminated games in Gloucester when Bright Nights returns this February 2023.

The streets of Gloucester are set to come alive with light this February 2023, as Bright Nights returns to the city. 

On Friday 17 and Saturday 18 February 2023, Light Games will bring huge illuminated games to Matson, transforming the Redwell Centre into an illuminated arcade. 

Games include a giant, light-up version of retro mobile game Snake; connect four; neon mini golf; and a memory game, which are all FREE to play, with hot drinks to enjoy around the fire pits too.

The 'unexpected and unusual' installations aim to bring joy and fun to the dark winter evenings. 

Previous Bright Nights installations have included Globoscope, which saw a swathe of glowing orbs appear on Robinswood Hill; Lumino, an illuminated journey through Llanthony Secunda Priory; and Luma, which saw a giant, interactive illuminated snail take up residence at Gloucester Cathedral.

Light Games are free and suitable for children aged four and up, with slots to play each game available to pre-book online in advance.
