Night of Heritage Light 2017

Seeing Oxford in a whole new light.

For one night only, some of Oxford’s most beautiful buildings were lit up like never before.

In association with the Society of Light and Lighting, the Night of Heritage Light 2017 celebrated the art and science of light – with fun, creative designs lighting up some of the city’s most iconic sites:

  • Ashmolean Museum
  • Museum of Natural History
  • Museum of the History of Science
  • Bodleian Library quad
  • Radcliffe Camera
  • Radcliffe Observatory
  • Radcliffe Humanities.

Experts in the field of lighting put their designs on display to demonstrate the power of light. Combining their love of light and art, design teams used their skills to enhance the stunning architecture and light up the night time environment.
