Thank you for visiting Lumiere Durham 2019

Thank you for joining us on the streets to see Durham City in a whole new light. The 10th anniversary edition of Lumiere was four spectacular evenings showcasing light art in iconic and unexpected places. Hundreds of thousands of people braved incessant rain to experience the event. First estimates put the number of visitors at 165,000, bringing the number of people who have enjoyed the festival since it began in 2009 at just over one million.
