Lumiere London

Today is the day London's festival of light, 'Lumiere London', kicks off. The festival includes a programme of 50 works across the capital, from Thursday 18 to Sunday 21 January 2018, and showcases art from leading UK and international artists.

The first edition of the free event ran in 2016, but this is the biggest to date.

Mayfair highlights include illuminated seesaws on South Molton Street, an ethereal and illuminated sculpture, 'Was That a Dream?' in Berkeley Square and an installation of chandeliers made from used plastic bottles, with the participation of community groups and education teams at Veolia.
