2018 Programme

Our 2018 annual Festival of Light brought warmth, light and curiosity into Dumfries town centre at the darkest time of the year.

We used light to celebrate the beauty of our surroundings and, in the spirit of play and discovery, invited visitors and townspeople to imagine what could be possible in Dumfries Town Centre.

 

TOWN CENTRE ILLUMINATIONS

24 - 27th January 2018
5pm–late

Making playful shapes, reinterpreting buildings, having fun with the Midsteeple, D-Lux will create an after dark playground.

Look up, look down. Is it that time of year again?
