Under Greater Manchester's Tier 3 restrictions and after a successful debut in 2019, Lightopia Festival has proved popular again this year. It becomes the only largest outdoor event during Christmas.
Where a wide range of restriction measures are still being implemented in response to the new epidemic in England, Haitian culture team had overcome all variety of difficulties brought about by the epidemic and made tremendous efforts to make the festival hold on schedule. With the approaching of Christmas and new year, it has brought a festive atmosphere to the city and conveyed hope, warmth, and good wishes.
This year's one very special section is paying tribute to the region's NHS heroes for their tireless work during the Covid pandemic - including a rainbow installation lit up with the words 'thank you'.
Set against the stunning backdrop of the Grade I-listed Heaton Hall, the event fills the surrounding park and woodland with giant glowing sculptures of everything from animals to astrology.
