What is Illuminate?
The Illuminate Tour is a nationwide schools tour, partnering with the local schools and churches, focusing on raising aspirations in young people and inspiring them by faith to live their lives on purpose.
As a part of this nationwide tour, Illuminate artists are visiting schools to take lessons and assemblies, followed by an end of week gig at a local venue.
There will be an inspirational Christian message on the night of the gig.
At the event, there will be professional photographers/ videographers to capture the gig. This footage/ photos will be used online and may be used in the future for advertisement.
