Sunderland Illuminations have barely stopped shining and now Durham it set to ‘light up’ for the Lumiere Light Festival.

The Lumiere Light Festival has been to Durham three times before, with events in 2011, 2013 and most recently in 2015.

Artists from around the world will illuminate the city of Durham in delightful and unexpected ways, with a series of light installations to explore.

The Lumiere Light Festival will take place from 16th-19th November which is this Thursday and runs til Sunday.

A free ticketing system will be in operation during peak times (between 4.30pm and 7.30pm) for the city centre peninsula area only.

There will be a limited number of free tickets available for each night of the festival, on an online click and collect basis.

Over half of the 29 art works will be located outside the city centre area and can be visited without a ticket.
