Lumiere returns to its birthplace in Durham, 14-17 November 2019

Join us for a special 10th year anniversary edition. Lumiere is the UK’s largest light festival and has been transforming cities across the UK since 2009. Each Lumiere festival invites local and international artists to create works that reimagine buildings and public spaces, changing the way we experience our environment and the dark, winter nights. Prepare to be dazzled by large-scale projections, interactive creations and mind-blowing installations alongside a selection of quieter, more contemplative artworks.
