North Light aims to support the local community, shine a light on up- and-coming artists and champion the city’s rich history and unique creative scene, and welcoming guests to “eat, drink, work and play in a space that’s steeped in history and open to new creative possibilities”.

North Light will look to emerging regional artists to showcase their work, providing a platform for local talent, the first works on display at the venue have been selected in partnership with Modern Art Chester.
