Shining a light on the preservation and regeneration of the Leeds Temple District through Art and Architecture

Faithful+Gould are passionate about shaping, sustaining and managing change in the historic built environment. We are proud to be supporting developer CEG and sponsoring the ‘Temple Zone’ at the 15th Annual Light Night Leeds Festival, celebrating the power of art and culture in the city centre on 10th and 11th October 2019.

We are working on multiple schemes as part of the new Temple District Regeneration Area of Leeds, including the Grade I Listed Temple Mill with CEG and Tower Works, a joint venture between Richardsons and ASK Real Estate. The launch of the “Temple Zone” at this year’s festival will shine a light on the preservation and rejuvenation underway as the area is transformed by fantastic feature installations and performances.

Phil Thwaite, Leeds Office Director for Faithful+Gould commented “Light Night Leeds is a fantastic family occasion that allows people to see parts of the city they would not necessarily normally visit and makes art fun, interactive and accessible. Last year was my first year of taking the family along and I was blown away by the size and scale of the event."

Phil continued, "Faithful+Gould are really excited to be playing a part this year by supporting the GRID at Temple Zone as part of Light Night Leeds 2019 and grateful to CEG for giving us the opportunity to get involved. This year’s event promises to be even bigger and better than last year and provides us with a great opportunity to showcase Leeds built environment, past and present as well and the fantastic regeneration works going on in the city, particularly on the South Bank and the new Temple District.”

This year the event celebrates the themes of Mind, Body and Spirit, with over 60 stunning creations illuminating iconic architecture across the city centre landscape. With the help of the local student community, artists, headline sponsor Vastint UK and the support of CEG, Faithful+Gould and many other key players in the regeneration and transformation of Leeds City Region, Leeds City Council have made Light Night Leeds set to be one of the largest celebrations of arts and creativity in the UK.
