Proudly made in Durham, Lumiere is set to return for four nights from 16-19 November 2023.
Produced by leading UK arts producers Artichoke and commissioned by Durham County Council, with additional support from Arts Council England, Prince Bishop’s Place and a host of further funders and supporters.
The free-to-attend event will feature a thought-provoking and entertaining new programme of spectacular light artworks by UK and internationally-renowned artists who have something to say about our world.
Since 2009, Lumiere in Durham has attracted more than one million visitors and stands as a landmark event in the cultural calendar of the North East. For its 8th edition in 2023, the programme will continue to bring magic, joy and light to the local community, brightening the dark winter nights of November and boosting the local economy.
Beyond the lights, over 12,000 local people and school children have benefitted from involvement in Lumiere’s learning and participation programmes and volunteering opportunities, developing their skills and having a great time in the process.
