Change to Lumiere Durham ProgrammeBack to all
November 15th, 2015
As of 11.30am, Sunday 15th November, Lumiere producer Artichoke regrets that due to adverse weather conditions and rising water levels in the River Wear, it has been necessary to cancel Mysticete (the whale) by Top’là Design / Catherine Garret at this evening’s Lumiere festival.
Artichoke is reviewing the situation on an ongoing basis and there will be further updates during the course of the day. Other installations may be affected.
Please prepare for your journey tonight before you leave, and check either the Lumiere or Durham County Council websites at www.lumiere-festival.com or www.durham.gov.uk or follow the Lumiere hashtag #LumiereDurham.
While Artichoke understands that this is disappointing news, there are still many spectacular installations to enjoy at the festival on this final Lumiere evening; Daniel Canogar’s Asalto Durham on the North Road Viaduct, Shared Space & Light’s Home Sweet Home Durham on Hawthorn Terrace and Patrice Warrener’s The Red House at Old Shire Hall. Installations at Durham Cathedral are unaffected.
