The spectacular Lumiere London Light Festival returns to the capital following its 2016 debut, with more than 50 artworks by UK and international artists transforming public spaces and buildings in to an immersive, multi-sensory nocturnal art exhibition of light and sound.

Commissioned by the Mayor of London and produced by the arts charity Artichoke, the four-night festival of lights extends from the West End and Mayfair to Kings Cross, Westminster & Victoria and the South Bank. And the best thing about it? It’s completely free to attend!
Even the roads are pedestrianised for the duration of the event, making it ideal to experience London without the distraction of the usual congestion and traffic. A full programme guide and festival map can be purchased, and a free interactive app downloaded via this link >here<.
With so many fantastic artworks and attractions to see across the different locations, it is advisable to plan this over more than one evening, especially when there is so much to see and experience. There are far too many to choose from, but here are a few of our favourites: Nightlife in Leicester Square, Love Motion at the Royal Academy of Arts, Impulse on South Molton Street, My Light is Your Light in St James’s Churchyard, Child Hood on Trafalgar Square, Eye Love London at the Coca-Cola London Eye and Bough 1 at the Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf.
Lumiere London runs from 18 January to 21 January 2018.
