For four nights, from 9-12 February 2017, SPECTRA, Aberdeen’s stunning Festival of Light, will return to celebrate the Scottish Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology exploring Aberdeen’s past through this year’s theme “A New Light”.

Bringing together leading international artists with established Scottish collaborators the festival will deliver a light spectacular to once again animate Union Terrace Gardens, the Kirk of St Nicholas Graveyard, Seventeen and Marischal College.

Featuring major public realm and gallery installations alongside new experimental works from the local creative community the festival will enliven the city and celebrate Aberdeen’s creative past, present and future.

Inviting audiences to engage with playful, accessible and high quality performances, spaces and works of art that marry light, sound and interactive experiences SPECTRA 2017 will be an exciting family event bringing light to the depths of winter!
