This year LUMEN – Crewe’s Night Of Lights will transform, illuminate and animate Crewe Town Centre. This free and exciting, Winter themed, multi event evening will welcome local families and tourists alike to explore the stunning attractions on show throughout the Town. The main attraction (which has never been seen in Crewe previously), is a mesmerising video mapping show. Portraying a Winter fairy story that will be projected full scale onto the Municipal building façade. This stunning projection will take viewers through a spectacular snowy, sooty, Victorian Crewe telling the story of an unlikely pairing, a chance encounter and amorous pursuit.

Crewe’s Memorial Square will be lit by the magical glow of woodland creatures, giant flowers, luminous stars and Ice drops. And a ‘Fox Lady” puppet will be engaging children on walkabout performance’s around the Town.

Santa’s Grotto can also be found in Lyceum Square along with a fabulous winter market with an eclectic range of food and gift stalls offering mouthwatering treats and those perfect Christmas gifts.

A magical Lantern procession from Lyceum Square will arrive later in Crewe’s Memorial Square, where at 6:30pm the Mayor of Crewe, Cllr Brian Roberts, will switch on this year’s Christmas Lights, and for the very first time the beautiful Crewe’s Night Of lights projection will begin.

This spectacular event is organised by Crewe Town Council and supported by a wide range of successful local business and partners including: Cheshire East CouncilCrewe Lyceum Theatre, Crewe Library, TheCat 107.9FM, The Market, Design Office, ArtReach, Double Take Projection, Same Sky, Bltiz Fireworks,  Air Products, Prestige Motors Crewe, Crewe Engineering & Design UTC and ABC Childcare Services Crewe.
