Illuminate Bath 2012 in pictures

What an incredibly busy few weeks! Illuminate Bath 2012 was a tremendous success. The festival got busier and busier each night. We estimate that about 36,000 people attended the festival in total over the four evenings. We've had lots of great publicity and photos of the artworks have been enjoyed by people all around the world.

The best part of it for me was seeing so many people of all ages enjoying the artworks. It's hard to take it in at the time but there were a few precious moments when I stopped to look around me and I felt there was a magical and playful atmosphere. After nearly a year of planning it seems like it's gone in a flash. Thankfully there are loads of amazing photos on flickr to enjoy. It's also great to read lots of positive comments on twitter and facebook.
