Welcome to the Kirkcudbright Festival of Light 2019

Artists have waxed lyrical about the incredible light of Kirkcudbright for more than 100 years. The autumn light makes this picturesque town on the south western edge of Scotland especially enchanting, warming russet landscapes that melt gently into diffused waterscapes.

As the nights draw in it gives us the perfect opportunity to explore the inspirational light of our town, and to light up our historic closes, harbour and hidden corners in imaginative ways.

Our community has pulled together an exciting programme of events and installations with immersive experiences that will delight all ages.

We invite you to join us during this four day festival that showcases the imagination, illumination and inspiration of Kirkcudbright; Scotland’s Artists’ Town.
