Spectacular large-scale projections will light up Derbyshire landmarks with a unique fusion of music, visuals and sound when ‘Shine A Light’ returns this autumn/winter. Visitors will be able to watch Derbyshire’s history unfold in magical night-time shows projected on to heritage venues as part of the new ‘Shine A Light’ programme.

Providing fun for the whole family, the events will bring together awe-inspiring illuminations and projections in a visually stunning display. Delivered by internationally-renowned Derbyshire-born video projection artists Illuminos, ‘Shine A Light’ is inspired by Voices From The Peak – a celebration of the county in sound created by local poet and performer Mark Gwynne Jones to celebrate the Peak District National Park’s 70th birthday last year.

The events have been commissioned by Derbyshire County Council following a successful pilot in 2021 when ‘Shine A Light’ displays held at Chatsworth and Cromford Mills were enjoyed by more than 3,200 visitors.

Designed to celebrate Derbyshire’s rich history and heritage, extend the tourism season and boost the visitor economy in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, the next instalments of ‘Shine A Light’ aim to build on last year’s success with more awe-inspiring events.
