LightNight 2019

The Liverpool Arabic Centre (LAC) is delighted to be working with the Liverpool Arab Arts Festival (LAAF) for year’s LightNight 2019.

17:30 – 22:00

Liverpool Town Hall | High St, Liverpool L2 3SW

Liverpool Arabic Centre and Liverpool Arab Arts Festival invite visitors to drop into a traditional Arabic ‘Living Room’.

Food and hospitality forms a significant part of Arabic culture; the ritual of communal eating is vital to traditional and religious ceremonies and events across the Middle East. Arab recipes, food and culinary traditions help to preserve cultures, while often connecting Arabs living abroad to home. These simple daily rituals are a pillar of everyday life. For some cultures, these actions are a form of resistance in the face of war and displacement.

Creating an atmosphere of traditional Arab hospitality, Liverpool Arab Arts Festival will share traditional Arab music, dress, storytelling and Yemeni biscuits and tea with visitors until 20:30. This informal and welcoming atmosphere will celebrate the differences, but most importantly the commonalities, between domestic life in Western and Middle Eastern cultures through the most basic of human rituals.

 This event is part of the tenth annual LightNight Liverpool, the free one-night arts festival, which is taking place on Friday 17 May 2019. 

On LightNight, Liverpool springs to life for a Friday night out like no other. With new commissions and a packed programme of more than 100 events, the festival offers an unforgettable experience to be enjoyed with friends and family. Venues across the city will stay open late to present live music, workshops, theatre, exhibitions and much more.

For 2019 LightNight explores personal and collective rituals, from the spiritual to the habitual, and consider how they help us to understand the world and define, or transcend, our place within it.

Festival guides can be purchased from selected outlets across the city centre or ordered online at

LightNight is produced by local social enterprise Open Culture.
