An award-winning Aberdeen light festival saw a record number of visitors on its opening night – with more than 11,000 attending.
This year’s SPECTRA launch saw 3,500 more people going along to visit the installations, compared to the 7,500 who flocked to the start of the city centre event in 2017.
BAFTA award-winning artist Seb Lee-Delisle’s Lightning Strikes and Lightbombing by SOLA wowed the crowds at Marischal College, while Union Terrace Garden is the location of installations Wave-Field by Lateral Office and Light Battle by Venividimultiplex.
This year also sees His Majesty’s Theatre bathed in light with King Orpheo by Illuminous.
Aberdeen City Council deputy leader Councillor Marie Boulton said: “The opening evening of SPECTRA 2018 has been tremendous. Each of the sites has been packed with families and friends enjoying the installations.”
