The York BID were looking to make a big difference to their existing Christmas light scheme. Looking for the WOW factor.
We looked at streets that weren't currently covered but knew that getting permission from building owners would prove too big a task given the timescales. As York has these bars that are effectively gateways they were the perfect structure for our lighting effect.
Andrew Lowson, BID manager, said we've had a lot of very positive feedback about the four Bargates and thought they looked stunning.
