All tickets have now been issued, find out what you can see without one.
There's still lots to see at Lumiere if you do not have a ticket.
To allow visitors to have a safe and enjoyable experience, the festival organisers in consultation with Durham County Council and Durham Constabulary, have decided to implement a priority ticketing system solely for the central peninsula area this year during the busiest part of the evening, between 4.30 and 7.30pm.
The priority tickets have been very popular and all of these have now been issued. But everyone can still enjoy the whole festival with a little planning.
Only 11 of the event’s 27 installations are located within the restricted area, with some of the most exciting works situated outside the ticketed area. People without priority tickets are therefore strongly advised to visit the outer areas first, and come to the central area after 7.30pm. Check the programme page for some suggested routes.
