Having lived in York for over four years, we eventually managed to get along to visit Illuminate York this year. Centred on Castle Museum this year (the location of our Wedding Reception) we arrived around 6.30pm last night to witness a fantastic light and sound show along with thousands of other locals and tourists alike.
The Illuminating York festival has run for seven years now and is becoming a key event on the York tourist agenda.
The show last night had the Castle Museum illuminated with moving images and great sound that brought a whole new perception to this historic building. Paul just thought they shone a few bright lights on to the side of the building, but having now seen this event, admitted that he was truly impressed. The Castle Museum took on shapes that you would never have imagined and with the great sound effects that accompanied this piece of art, it was very entertaining and interesting in equal measure.
If you missed it this year, you must make the effort in 2012 to see what is certainly one of the best festivals going on each year in this famous city we now call home.
