Lumiere is just one of the many events Gareth is involved with this year.

Siobhan McGuigan, ni 2012/14 Manager, Northern Ireland Tourist Board
Siobhan is vital to the Lumiere team understanding all about Derry as a place and a tourist destination, providing connections and expert knowledge. “Right now, Northern Ireland’s light is shining brightly across the world. Lumiere will help to show just how luminous this region is, using the historic walls of the City of Derry as a canvas. We are so looking forward to welcoming this acclaimed festival to our shores.”
