Welcome to the Light Festival Evaluation Toolkit

Light events and festivals can play an important role in increasing the draw of a town or city, bringing in new visits and helping to safeguard existing visits.They provide an opportunity to celebrate what the city has to offer including shopping, culture & art, entertainment, dining and other activities.


The impacts can go well beyond what can be measured in economic terms and have the potential to positively affect the dynamics of the host town or city centre at night, including enhanced atmosphere and changing perceptions of the place among visitors and residents alike.


To support cities in assessing these impacts, LUCI provides a Toolkit of resources to help members improve their evaluation of the impacts associated with staging light festivals and events.
