Bristol Light Festival 2022


Thanks to the investment and involvement from our levy payers, we’re creating a better Bristol: one that’s more caring, more welcoming, safer, cleaner, wonderfully diverse and better promoted.

Our guiding principles are to offer strong and effective governance, to have clear accountability, to give our levy payers value for money and to be responsive to our levy payer’s needs.
