Lumiere Light Festival 2015

< Return To London

Since the first Lumiere in Durham 2009, producers Artichoke has brought the iconic light festival to cities across the UK.

Lumiere London was the capital’s largest-ever light festival that took place from 14 to 17 January 2016. An estimated one million people came to see the free event. London’s first Lumiere festival featured illuminations and animations projected at 20 locations in the West End and Kings Cross over four nights. My favourite installations were 1.8 London by Janet Echelman / Studio Echelman, Les Luminéolesby Porté par le vent, Keyframes by Groupe LAPS, Dresses by Tae gon KIM, Les Voyageurs (The Travellers) by Cédric Le Borgne, Brothers & Sisters by Ron Haselden.

It was such a beautiful present to all citizens of London and its guests.

Wish it lasted longer, as so many of my dear friends wished to see it themselves, but couldn’t as were simply not in town.
