AN ambitious art initiative is set to launch tonight with a spectacular light show.

The Journeyer project officially begins with a tour using a phone app developed alongside various art works with a tour around Harwich starting at Ha’penny pier at 7.30pm.

Volunteers, artists and guests will end their walk at Harwich Green at 8.30pm where a show entitled Guiding Lights will illuminate the field for one night only.

There have been provisions made for inclement weather and the Cafe on the Green will be open for refreshments.
