The Light Night Challenge

 
In collaboration with Up for Arts, a partnership between Voluntary Arts and BBC Radio Stoke, we’re challenging the whole city to get glowing during January 2019. Families, community groups, businesses and individuals, we want everyone throughout the city to take on The Light Night Challenge and help us shine a light on Stoke-on-Trent in the countdown to Light Night. 
 
Whether through one of our artist workshops or with a DIY kit, create your very own piece of illuminated art and light up your window! Encourage your neighbour, your street and your whole town to do so, shout about it with #LightUpSOT and let’s see if we can get the whole city lit up.
 
Further details about workshops and kits will be announced shortly. Got a community group, business or individual that would like to take on the Challenge? Email makeadifference.stoke@bbc.co.uk to express your interest in the meantime and find out more.
