Lumiere London

Durham Lumiere Festival 2015

Get ready for Lumiere London: the biggest-ever light festival to hit the capital.

Produced by Artichoke and supported by the Mayor of London, for four evenings in January a host of international artists will illuminate the city from 6:30pm to 10:30pm each night.

Discover a programme that responds to the unique architecture of each location. Lumiere London 2016 is spread across four of London’s most exciting areas: King’s Cross; Mayfair; Piccadilly, Regent Street and St James’s; and Trafalgar Square and Westminster.

Check out the full programme and find out more about the installations. Download a free map to show where to find the installations, or get the app for your iPhone or Android device. A limited number of printed maps will also be available during the festival.

Artichoke produced the first Lumiere in Durham in 2009, where it has since returned every other year, commissioned by Durham County Council. In 2013 the company also travelled to Derry~Londonderry where a unique Lumiere programme was part of the finale to the UK City of Culture celebrations.

Artichoke’s first ever project, The Sultan’s Elephant took place in London in 2006. This was followed by extraordinary projects such as The Telectroscope and Antony Gormley’s One & Other. The company’s return to the capital coincides with their 10 year anniversary.

With a dazzling array of artists preparing to throw new light on some of the city’s most celebrated buildings, everyone is invited to start the new year in spectacular fashion at Lumiere London.
