UEL: After Dark - 18 Hours

UEL After Dark will illuminate the University’s Docklands campus in a dazzling display of light, art and movement.

For one night, UEL:After Dark will light up the university’s Docklands campus; welcoming families and local businesses; and providing opportunities for everyone to watch or participate in a range of art, light and movement-based activities.
