Lumiere Light Show in Derry
This week’s spectacular Lumiere light show in Derry will allow one Belfast company to display its products like never before.
AM Light makes neon lighting and is the only manufacturer of cold-cathode lighting in Ireland.
It has worked with local artists on some of the pieces to appear at this week’s four-day extravaganza in the city of culture which will see an array of light installations and projects transform buildings and streets.
It is just the latest high- profile project AM Light has been involved with as the family firm expands into new markets across the world.
The Cold-cathode Lighting has been used on some Belfast’s best known landmarks including the Victoria Square complex and Titanic Belfast. It allows bespoke lighting to be added to highlight architectural features – such as the multicoloured dome atop Victoria Square.
Following two successful Lumiere festivals in Durham, England, producers Artichoke have been invited to bring Lumiere to Derry by the Culture Company, bringing an incredible year of arts and culture in the city to a close with a four day celebration of light.
Local and international artists, lighting designers, and community groups will breathe new light into the city with a breathtaking series of lightworks. The festival is expected to be a popular family event with artworks sprawling right across the city in a sprinkle of winter magic.
The light creations will range from large-scale projections, to neons, to installations using the latest LEDs, created by artists and lighting designers from near and far including pieces created by artists from the Northern Ireland as part of the successful Brilliant competition.

Lumiere runs for four days from next Thursday, 28th November and is expected to attract hundreds of thousands of visitors to Derry.
