Lite Nite

See you next year

Lite Nite is a super exciting ALTERNATIVE to Halloween for ages 4-11 and their families.


Lite Nite is our biggest and brightest event of the year, and includes all of this...

Live band
Exciting games, quizzes & prizes
Showstopping performances
+ Hot dog supper & much more

No tricks, just treats

Lite Nite is aimed at ages 4-11, but we encourage accompanying family members to stay and enjoy the event.

Unaccompanied children

For safety reasons, children attending Lite Nite on their own will need to be registered at the door by an adult. We'll take some basic details including the child's name, any allergies, and an emergency contact number.  The adult and child will be given matching stickers to ensure safe collection at the end of the event.


Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. If the event is very busy, we may need to ask some of the adults to sit nearer the back, or in one of our overflow rooms.

Under 4s

Parents/carers bringing children under 4 years old will be directed to one of our overflow rooms where there's a live video link and space for pushchairs.

Over 12s

We don't admit visitors aged 12+ unless accompanying a child.

Families welcome

We held our 29th Lite Nite on 31st October 2019. Details of next year's event will be posted here in 2020.



Lite Nite essentials:

No fancy dress please

Doors open at 6:30pm
It's completely FREE and you don't need a ticket

One night only!

As a youth charity, we are deeply concerned about some of the themes that surround 31st October.


One of the most worrying trends in recent years is the sale of children's fancy dress costumes and accessories that depict graphic injuries and brutal violence including acts that should normally outrage and horrify us. 

Lite Nite was founded in 1991 as an alternative to all the fear and horror of Halloween. Instead of death and darkness, we want to celebrate LIFE and LIGHT... so we throw our biggest and brightest party of the year to give families a choice. Over the last 28 years, we've proved just how much fun children can have when they ditch the dark outfits and party in the light.

Why no fancy dress?

Woodlea Mission
Tenterfield Street, Waterfoot
Rossendale, BB4 7BA


Woodlea Mission is the home of Vision, and it's the perfect venue for children's events. We're just down the road from Waterfoot Primary School. There's a free car park on Millar Barn Lane, but we recommend leaving yourself extra time to park in case it's busy. Please don't park in front of houses on the street.


Keeping children safe is always our first priority, and we have an experienced Safety Team on hand to help make sure everyone enjoys the event.

Food & drinks

Soft drinks and hot dogs (including vegetarian option) are available for children at the end of the event. Please speak to our team if your child has a food allergy.

We're happy for children to bring their own bottled soft drinks and snacks in small packets. We don't allow hot food or drinks, energy drinks, or alcoholic drinks.

Lights & sound

If your child is sensitive to flashing lights or loud sounds, please speak to the Safety Team about our overflow rooms.

Entry policy

As with all our events, we reserve the right to refuse entry.

Members of our team may take photos and videos at this event in line with our Privacy Policy.


This event is run by an experienced team of youth work volunteers who have undergone all necessary training and hold enhanced DBS certificates. Our Safety Team (wearing hi-vis jackets) are available all night if you have any concerns or questions about safety.
