Banks Group add permanent artwork to Durham landscape
Alongside the launch of Lumiere Durham 2017, the Banks Group have added to the Durham landscape for a second time with a permanent artwork from Lumiere Durham 2015.
Lightbench by Bernd Spiecker for LBO-Lichtbankobjekte (Germany) is now installed in the new Freeman’s Quay development. It joins Tobie Langel’s witty and unusual civic clock, Helvetictoc, which is sited on the wall above the city’s Library and was the Banks Group’s first permanent Lumiere gift to the Durham community.
Lumiere Durham dates announced
The UK’s largest outdoor light festival Lumiere will return to illuminate Durham for the fifth time next year, Thursday 16th – Sunday 19th November 2017.
Lumiere Durham has become a landmark event in the cultural calendar of the North East and is recognised around the world as a “must see” light festival. Free-to-attend, Lumiere attracted 200,000 visitors to Durham in 2015
Programming for the festival is now underway so stay tuned for updates.
