Corporate opportunities


Don’t miss your chance to share in the magic of Lumiere. There are a limited number of exclusive opportunities for companies to join us and see behind the scenes with the artists, producers and VIPs that bring the festival to life.

Play a part in bringing the UK’s largest light festival to the beautiful medieval city of Durham by becoming a corporate partner. Whether you want to sponsor your favourite art installation, put your company’s name to a festival event, or entertain your clients and colleagues in the stunning surroundings of Lumiere, we would love to put together a bespoke package to suit you – and your budget.

By supporting Lumiere, you will raise your company’s profile, enjoy exclusive networking events with some of the region’s leading business figures, and get the inside story from Artichoke, the arts charity that produces the festival. Lumiere’s unique community and education projects also offer exciting opportunities to realise the untapped potential of young people across the North East. We’ll work with you to identify your priorities, complement your existing activity and provide you with a report after the festival so you can measure the value of your partnership.

200,000 people came to see Lumiere in 2015 and in an independent survey, 90% of County Durham residents say it increases their sense of pride in where they live. That year, the festival brought £9.6m in economic benefits to the North East and featured in nearly 500 press articles.
