The Light Keeps the Show Going


Now matter how well you plan an event, there are always factors you can’t control. Like, say, the weather.

The Light, Leeds, hosted its end-of-summer outdoor music festival on Saturday and ran into a bit of a speedbump—pouring rain. But that didn’t dampen its spirits. The show must go on, so with the performers safely under cover the center went ahead with the music.

Hundreds of visitors showed up for the Switched On festival, taking in popular (but unsigned) local acts like Dorien Starre, I Call Shot Gun, Seas of Green and Soul Circus. The evening was closed out by The Young Knives. All the bands played the gig for free, leaving proceeds to be collected for a great cause, children’s cancer-fighting charity Candlelighters.

In the end, the center brought in £500 for the charity and gave a great (damp) time to many shoppers. Stephanie James, marketing manager at The Light, said “The event is a great way to showcase some of the brilliant unsigned acts out there and raise money for charity at the same time”
