The city of Belfast was a-light this Culture Night as crowds gathered at St. Anne’s Cathedral for a stunning light show, projected on to the famous façade and steeples of the building.
Thanks to Power NI, Northern Ireland’s leading electricity supplier, thousands of Culture Night visitors gathered in Writer’s Square and enjoyed a light and music show which portrayed the years of generations that have been powered by the company in Northern Ireland.
Power NI’s #LightingUpGenerations show was a tribute to how Belfast has changed over the years, showing a young girl and her grandfather travelling through time from the 1930s to present day, and also marked the 10th anniversary of Culture Night Belfast.
Gemma-Louise Bond, Senior Sponsorship and Events Executive at Power NI who oversaw the project, commented: “Power NI has been lighting up generations of homes and businesses for decades – from before the inception of the Electricity Board for Northern Ireland in 1931when we were Northern Ireland’s only electricity supplier to the present day where we are about to launch an innovative app to manage your home electricity.
“We were so excited to bring our show to Culture Night and to be able to light up one of the most iconic buildings in the city. Our light show was all about togetherness, community and love, our way of giving back to a city that has given us so much and to engage with the people that make Belfast and Northern Ireland the best in the world.”
