20 Photos That Might Make You Want To Visit The Next Lumiere London
It’s no Glow Eindhoven or Vivid Sydney, but Lumiere London is a pretty good reason to brave a cold, damp January evening. For four days, international artists get free reign to light up London with over 50 installations.
What they don’t mention in the press release is:
2 rude Dutch people
3 crying mums
10 kids on scooters
12 places trying to seduce you with hot chocolate
20 sites where you’re not sure if it’s part of the festival or just accidental Lumiere.
Despite this, there’s more than a few bright lights to dazzle you. Mine were:
Child Hood @ Trafalager Square – all my Hertz go to this one
Harmonic Portal @ 197 Piccadilly – loved these watts and wats
The Wave @ the South Bank – lightened up my mood
Entre les rangs @ King’s Cross – was truly delightful to walk around
OSC-L & Sixty Minute Spectrum @ South Bank – leave you in the dark
You might want to dim your expectations when you come across these ones:
Waterlicht @ King’s Cross
Be Faithful To Your Dreams @ 197 Piccadilly
Guardian Angels @ King’s Cross
Friction @ 103/113 Regent Street
Lampounette @ King’s Cross
UFO @ King’s Cross

Ohmygosh this looks amazing! Would love to visit. I am headed back to London in March, so I guess I’ll just have to return next January! 😉
I liked it but was underwhelmed this year when compared to the first
