Lumiere is produced by Artichoke. 

Artichoke is a leading arts charity that works with artists to invade public spaces and put on extraordinary and ambitious events that live in the memory forever.

Artichoke projects take place outside of traditional arts venues like theatres and galleries. Previous projects include bringing central London to a standstill with The Sultan’s Elephant; broadcasting love poetry from illuminated tents along the coastline of the UK for Deborah Warner’s Peace Camp; and burning a 140m long model of 17th century London on the Thames for London’s Burning, marking the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London.

Find out more on the Artichoke website.

Artichoke is dedicated to bringing ground breaking arts events to the widest possible audience. As a registered charity, and with most events free to the public, the company relies on grants, donations and sponsors to fund what they do.

Artichoke: a rare and inspirational mix of creative energy and sheer professional competence. They have never ducked a challenge.
