Lumiere, Durham’s v. own festival of light starts tonight and goes on for four days. Looks like with the Festival of Culture bid they are going all out with this, even more so than last years excellent display. If you’re about enjoy….should be spectacular.
The blurb, for once I think, can be believed when it says:
LUMIERE is a four-day festival that will brighten the historic city of Durham, bringing a sprinkle of winter magic to the North East. More than 50 artists will create a breathtaking series of installations, illuminations and performances using light. Lumiere will turn the city into a winter wonderland, transforming its stunning buildings, streets and riverbanks, with a nocturnal winter festival that will amaze residents and visitors alike.
