It’s rare to get people out of the house on a cold January evening that doesn’t involved sitting someone warm for a few drinks. Yet, Lumiere London, a free series of light installations and interactive art have hundreds, possibly thousands of people a night crowding the streets of central London over a long weekend in pursuit of experiencing the city in a new light.

Lumiere first began in 2009 with the first show installed in Durham, now in it’s seventh year the show has expanded to Derry and now London. Sites around our nation’s capital included Piccadilly Circus, Grovesnor Gardens and King’s Cross and features over * pieces.

Here are my highlights of the festival:
