SPECTRA, Scotland’s festival of light, returns to Aberdeen in 2022, creating a stunning lightscape across the city and brining four days of family friendly fun to Aberdeenshire. Scotland’s premiere light festival, SPECTRA takes inspiration from Scotland’s Year of Stories in 2022.
From the Thursday 10 to Sunday 13 February, SPECTRA will once again light up the winter nights in Aberdeen encouraging audiences to get out and experience the city looking its best using interactive light sculptures, architectural projections and film to create new ways of exploring the city.
As we emerge from the pandemic, Spectra is the perfect event suitable for friends and family alike, with both indoor and outdoor spaces, it makes Aberdeen the ideal destination for both visitors and staycationers in 2022.
SPECTRA is an Aberdeen City Council event, delivered by award-winning production company Curated Place.
This year the works of art created in light will appear in Marischal College, Union Street, Broad Street, Upperkirkgate, Schoolhill, Marischal Square, and Aberdeen Art Gallery.
