Celebrating the inspirational light of Kirkcudbright.


Enjoy a tour of the sparkling night time starscapes and journey through our galaxy by taking your seat in our immersive planetarium. Explore the twilight hours and watch as our local folk illuminate the nooks and crannies, as well as the iconic and historic places, of Kirkcudbright. Investigate our artistic installations that infuse our town centre with imaginative expression.


Local artists and makers will be welcoming you to explore their worlds. In some cases they’ll also be inviting you to create your own works of art! Learn how to repurpose beautiful bottles into functional table lamps, create stunning fabric lanterns, make your own fairy door and design beautiful illuminated sculptures from willow. Full details of all the making workshops are on our website.


Fuel your senses with a Diwali celebration meal, take a candlelit walk around a National Trust House, relax your mind with a meditation class and enjoy the play of light across artistic curiosities. The fairy village and mini lochan are a joy in the centre of town and the iconic Kirkcudbright beach huts always delight.
