Press Release   •   Jan 05, 2018 08:50 GMT

Lumiere London 2018 is set to be bigger, brighter and bolder, as the light festival returns for the second time with a spectacular show!

Teaming up with Artichoke, the charity behind the project, to ensure that the event is accessible to all, Q-Park are the official parking partners for this incredible event.

The Lumiere festival has invited international and local artists to create light works on buildings and public spaces each year, transforming cities across the UK since 2009, when the first Lumiere event was held in Durham.

More than 40 UK and international artists will take part in transforming the city into a fantastic nocturnal art exhibition. Free to visit and taking place north and south of the River Thames, the UK’s largest light festival reaches right across the capital. In 2016, the event brought over one million visitors to the city over just four days.

There will be installations in six Lumiere London 2018 locations: King’s Cross, Fitzrovia, the West End, Mayfair, Westminster & Victoria, and South Bank & Waterloo.

You can get 15% off parking in London city centre locations with Q-Park. To make use of this discount, simply pre-book at any of the car parks listed here and use the code LUMIERE15 to receive the discount.

John Denton, Head of Sales and Marketing at Q-Park UK, said, “It is fantastic to be part of such a well-known event in London and we are pleased to support Artichoke in this project. Being an official partner of the Lumiere Festival will ensure mobility and accessibility to visitors during the event, as well as an exciting offering to those planning to visit.”
