So far Durham County Council have recruited over 100 people to volunteer as Festival Makers at this year’s Lumiere with the support of Northumbrian Water.  But there’s still got a way to go, and we’re inviting everyone who is interested to a special event on Wednesday 16th September.  Hear from event producers Artichoke about what’s planned for Lumiere this year, and Durham Council staff about the different roles on offer and opportunities beyond the festival.  You’ll also get a chance to check out some of the Festival Maker clothing and sign up for your shifts.
