sponsorship  packages 

We’re delighted to announce that LuminoCity will return to Southend next February Half Term, from Thursday 16th - Saturday 18th February 2023. 


Last year’s festival was part of the celebrations to commemorate our newly awarded city status. Over three dazzling nights, a series of large-scale light installations transformed Southend’s iconic landmarks, inviting residents and visitors to experience the city in a new light. 

Due to the overwhelming success of last year’s festival, we’re delighted to bring LuminoCity back for 2023, and we hope to make it even bigger and better than last year. 


To do that, we need the support of local businesses who recognise the importance of large-scale events such as this to bring people into Southend.
