Nuit Blanche, translated as all-nighter or a sleepless night, is an annual all-night or night time cultural festival celebrating the arts.  During the night, museums, art galleries and other cultural sights are open free of charge.  City centres will light themselves up and turn into art galleries with art installations, performances and other social activities.  The UK equivalent is ‘Light Night.’

Each year, Nuit Blanche takes place during the first Saturday in October, this year it falls on the 7 October.
