The UK’s largest light festival Lumiere returns to London from 18 – 21 January 2018 and will extend across both sides of the river Thames with festival areas including the West End, Westminster and Kings Cross.
Lumiere was created by Artichoke, a leading arts charity, in Durham in 2009, commissioned by Durham County Council. In January 2016, the company staged the first Lumiere London, supported by the Mayor of London, attracting 1.3 million visitors over four nights and a visitor spend of over £22 million.
The current Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has hailed the upcoming Lumiere London as one of the most spectacular free events to ever take place in the capital. The producers Artichoke have revealed some of the artworks coming to London including an immersive work that imagines a world under water at King’s Cross and flamingos flying through Chinatown. More than 40 artworks, made using the medium of light, will explore the city’s most iconic buildings, landscape and architecture.
The event receives major support from London & Partners, London’s West End, King’s Cross and Bloomberg Philanthropies with additional support provided by a host of partners and funders including Wellcome, The Fitzrovia Partnership and the Victoria, South and Waterloo Business Improvement Districts (BIDs), Cain International, Marriott and Universal Music.
