The DN Festival of Light

Right Up Our Street have launched a fundraising drive to help them to bring the DN Festival of Light back to Doncaster Minster.

The organisation need to reach their goal of £11,000 by November 2 to be successful in their crowdfunding.

Sally Lockey, project director of Right Up Our Street explains: “The DN Festival of Light celebrates the diversity of our town by bringing different communities together in one space to engage in the arts and culture.

“Last year we brought Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon to Doncaster and more than 16,000 people walked through the doors of the Minster to see the moon for our week-long free event.

“On our grand opening, we had a spectacular ‘DN Light Night’ which lit up the grounds of the Minster. This year we'd love to do it all again, but we need help.

“We are now fundraising to bring Doncaster another DN Light Night. Every donation will go towards scheduling art and activities that will make the event even better and brighter than last year.”

Right Up Our Street is a network of people working across the borough of Doncaster to make art and performance happen.

Sally added: “As a thank you to all of our backers, they will be given the first opportunity to secure entrance to the Minster on Light Night, ensuring they have the full experience of the night that could not happen without your help.”

Donations can be from as little as £2. To donate, please visit www.spacehive.com/dn-festival-of-light.
