Lumiere will transform familiar city landmarks, buildings, hidden spaces, parks and waterways into a magical nocturnal landscape of artworks made from light that sets out to amaze, delight, and stop people in their tracks.

The festival will feature a mix of high profile artist commissions, international and local artists and designers, as well as community initiatives. As part of its lasting legacy, the wider ambition of the festival is to use the temporary transformation of the public space to enable people to see the city in new ways.

Make a date and prepare to be dazzled.
