Lumiere Light Installations Illuminate Northern English City of Durham

DURHAM, England – Locals and visitors alike would be offered from Thursday a chance to explore a series of light installations on display around the northern English university city of Durham on the occasion of the Lumiere.

The fifth edition of the festival sees works by various international artists featuring at historic locations across the city.

“Back in Durham for the fifth time, artists from around the world will illuminate the city in delightful and unexpected ways, with a series of light installations to explore,” the organizers said on the event’s official website.

Images captured by an epa photographer showed trees along the River Wear lit up in purples and pinks as part of Finish artist Kari Kola’s “Frequencies” piece, with the iconic Durham Cathedral looming in the background.

Performers from British collective Cirque Bijou were also pictured spinning glowing umbrellas of various colors, while a moon was projected onto Durham Castle as part of British artist Hannah Fox’s piece, “Our Moon.”

The popular light festival, which has taken place every other year since 2009, draws thousands of visitors.

“In 2015, a record 200,000 visitors came to the event enjoying a ‘whale’ in the River Wear, mysterious rolling fog, and an interactive projection onto the inner roof of Durham Cathedral,” according to the organizers.

The festival, produced by arts charity Artichoke, which was behind the “London Burning” installation that marked the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London, runs from Nov. 16-19.
