Durham to be transformed as Artichoke announces 10th anniversary programme for Lumiere 

The full programme of 37 artworks and their locations has been revealed for the most ambitious Lumiere yet. Highlights of this 10th anniversary edition of the UK’s largest light art festival include a giant slinky, a piano-powered projection, a monumental snowdome and a fog sculpture cascading across the River Wear.

Running from Thursday 14th – Sunday 17th November 2019 and free to attend, Lumiere Durham is now an unmissable fixture in the cultural calendar of the North East and reimagines the city through dramatic installations, dynamic projections and reflective works showcasing the diversity and creativity of light art. The festival is created by Artichoke, the UK’s leading producers of art in the public realm, and commissioned by Durham County Council, with additional support from Arts Council England, Durham University and a host of further funders and supporters.
