After seven successful years bringing light to Durham's darkest winter months, Lumiere's festival of illumination is coming to London, transforming the city with a flock of enchanting sculptures and installations. Hosted by outdoor arts collective Artichoke, the festival will be running from the 14th to the 17th of January, bringing installations to Piccadilly, Jermyn Street, Regent Street, Carnaby Street and Oxford Circus, showcasing work from a range of pioneering artists including Janet Echelman, TILT and Benedetto Bufalino. Highlights will include the transformation of Leicester Square into a 'Garden of Light' featuring giant illuminated plants and flowers, along with a flock of neon balloon dogs in Trafalgar Square and a traditional London telephone box transformed into an aquarium. Lumiere runs from 6:30pm-10:30pm each evening.
