Accessibility

Durham is a medieval city and its cobbled streets, while beautiful, may make it difficult for some to make their way around. If you are concerned about access please consider attending at times when we predict there will be fewer people, Thursday and Sunday after 8.30pm. If you have questions about accessing LUMIERE, please contact Artichoke on artichoke@artichoke.uk.com or try calling the festival information line on: 03000 26 26 26. Lines are open Monday - Friday 9.30am - 5.30pm.
