Lumiere Durham, 16th - 19th November 2017

Back in Durham for the fifth time, artists from around the world will illuminate the city in delightful and unexpected ways, with a series of light installations to explore.

In 2015, 200,000 people came to Lumiere Durham to experience a spectacular programme of 29 light installations. Highlights included a ‘whale’ in the River Wear, mysterious fog tumbling down from the Cathedral and a projection that showed locals climbing the viaduct. Check out the 2015 programme in the Lumiere archive.

Produced by leading arts charity Artichoke and commissioned by Durham County Council, planning is already underway for 2017. Stay tuned for further announcements and information on how you can get involved.
