Experience Durham’s otherworldly event with Seaham Hall
10th anniversary of Lumiere: the UK’s largest light festival
Transforming cities across the UK since 2009 when the first light spectacle took place in Durham, Lumiere 2019 is expected to be the most astonishing yet to mark its 10th anniversary, drawing over 200,000 people from across the world.
Lumiere (14 – 17 November) invites local and international artists to create works that reimagine familiar buildings and public spaces, changing the way we experience our urban surroundings. In previous years the festival’s large-scale installations have included an interactive projection lighting up the vaulted ceiling of Durham Cathedral, a huge bank of light bulbs in the city centre, light transmitted through fog, and multi-coloured patterns cast through a triangular prism onto the River Wear. Smaller-scale gems have included an illuminated park bench and neon bikes.
Stay just 20 minutes away at five-star Seaham Hall, situated on Durham’s glorious coastline. The striking Georgian mansion house has just 21 individually designed suites, fascinating eclectic interiors, two fabulous restaurants, a 44,000 sq ft, award-winning spa and a 37-acre estate to explore.
Seaham Hall’s special Lumiere package costs from £173 pp (based on two sharing) including overnight accommodation in a Junior Suite, a Champagne Afternoon Tea, a Lumiere hamper (includes a flask of hotel chocolate, marshmallows, homemade toffee, a torch and an umbrella), a full English breakfast, and use of the award-winning spa facilities from 12 noon on the day of arrival until 12 noon on the day of departure.
