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.
Produced by Artichoke and supported by the Mayor of London, the festival brought together a spectacular array of artists whose work illuminated the city.
Thirty installations transformed the capital into a magical playground in King’s Cross, Leicester Square, Piccadilly, Regent Street, St James’s and Carnaby. See the names and artists for each installation below.
Lumiere London had founding support from Atom Bank, Bloomberg Philanthropies, Heart of London Business Alliance, London & Partners and King’s Cross, plus additional support from a host of partners and sponsors, including Westminster City Council.
Bloomberg Philanthropies and Artichoke hosted a sold-out Lumiere London Symposium, “The Heart and Soul of the City”, during the festival. Inspiring speakers included Lumiere London artists, cultural pioneers and leading policy makers, who shared their visions for the public realm and how artists and communities can transform it.
More than 200 volunteers from across the capital were recruited to support the festival through Team London, the Mayor’s volunteering programme. Their local expertise and knowledge of the artworks helped make the festival a success.
