Thank you to our supporters who give so generously to help us produce Lumiere Durham. We have worked with over 120 partners, from local Durham businesses to international partners in 2017.

Messages from two of our supporters:


 Thorn is extremely proud to be sponsoring Dome and Arches by Luminarie de Cagna. The fairy-tale structures have transformed the Market Place, Saddler Street and Silver Street. Durham is the birthplace of Lumiere and home to one of the Thorn manufacturing facilities so it is a natural step for Thorn to sponsor this spectacular event.

EMG Solicitors is a big fan of Lumiere Durham. In previous years, the festival has been a truly unforgettable experience and this year has been even better!  EMG Solicitors are extremely proud to be sponsoring Our Moon by Hannah Fox, which is spectacular, as well as thought provoking.
