Lumiere Durham dates announced

09 November 2016

The UK’s largest outdoor light festival Lumiere will return to illuminate Durham for the fifth time next year.

Lumiere Durham will take place from Thursday 16th – Sunday 19th November 2017. The festival has become a landmark event in the cultural calendar of the North East and is recognised around the world as a "must see" light festival. Free-to-attend, Lumiere attracted 200,000 visitors to Durham in 2015.

Alongside the launch of the 2017 festival, the Banks Group have added to the Durham landscape for a second time with a permanent artwork from Lumiere Durham 2015. Lightbench by Bernd Spiecker for LBO-Lichtbankobjekte is now installed in the new Freeman’s Quay development.

Programming for the festival is now underway so stay tuned for updates.
