Illuminight with Lidl 2019

Presented by East Ayrshire Leisure, Illuminight with Lidl is created and produced by Scotland’s leading independent event organisers UNIQUE Events in collaboration with production specialists Black Light.

In only two years Illuminight with Lidl has welcomed over 80,000 visitors to Dean Castle County Park, Kilmarnock to experience one of the UK’s most spectacular illumination events.

Conceived in 2017 to launch the extensive redevelopment of Dean Castle Country Park, Illuminight with Lidl has become a much-loved, well attended event, attracting a local following and a strong sense of local pride.


Illuminight with Lidl 2019 will be out-of-this world!

Returning for its third year with a spectacular new ‘SPACE’ show, this year Illuminight with Lidl will take audiences on an intergalactic journey.

Inspired by the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing, the show promises to be out-of-this-world, leading audiences on a space adventure from the KASA Castle Launch Pad to discover alien worlds, the moon and stars, interactive constellation installation and cosmic surprises for young and old alike.

Unique Events has engaged with Scotland’s leading lighting designer Grant Anderson heading up our Creative Team working with composer Claire Mackenzie and arts collective Projector Club to curate an all-new show for 2019.


Illuminight Food, Warming Zones & Shop

Scrumptious warming drinks, melting marshmallows and street food will be on offer at various points along the trail.

Catch a coffee from Linton & Co while you wait for your party to arrive. Once inside, make a night of it and gather round one of the firepits with family and friends for toasting marshmallows. You can also warm yourself at the Refueling Station or Warming Zone with Lidl’s mulled wine, spiced cider or hot chocolate or take a rest at one of our seating zones. Grab a Lidl voucher to help you enjoy Lidl’s warming drinks and marshmallows at home.

Street Food courtesy of Ian Mowbrey and Poke (Babu Kitchen) with a range of local produce offering hot & hearty comfort food to eat on the go. Finish your space adventure with a sweet treat from M&Ds Space Fair.

Bring your space adventure to an end at the M&Ds Space Fair on an exhilarating funfair ride or catch-an-alien at one of the stalls. *separate pay-for attractions
