Lumiere Durham 2013

For four nights in November 2013 Durham City will once again be transformed by a series of light installations and projections from leading regional, national and international artists and organisers. Residents and visitors alike will be able to enjoy a sense of celebration as they explore the new nocturnal landscape of the city. Familiar and forgotten features and spaces will be given a new life as they become the subject or background for beautiful illuminations and projections. This year’s festival is certain to be just as popular with artworks sprawling right across the city in a sprinkle of winter magic. The light creations will range from large-scale projections, to neons, to installations using the latest LEDs, created by artists and lighting designers from near and far including pieces created by artists from the North East as part of the successful brilliant competition. Lumiere is a huge success that has quickly become a major event in the North East. We do recognize that large numbers of people in a small medieval city do present challenges and so we’ve worked closely with our partners to develop an event plan which will deliver a safe event that is more enjoyable for all visitors. Priority tickets for the city center can be booked in advance, and the full program of events for this unforgettable event can be found at
