The Lumière Festival’s artistic director, Scott Florence, has chosen the theme of Stories for this year’s Evening of Light Celebration, taking place in New Edinburgh Park, Saturday, August 18th, commencing at 5pm.
Live performances, alongside enchanting visual arts, will animate New Edinburgh Park all the while illuminated via candlelit lanterns alone. A family-friendly event, the Lumière Festival offers entertainment suitable for all ages. Among local artists returning this year are the Fire Weavers, A Company of Fools (performing Henry V), Gillian Kirkland, and Propeller Dance. Some of the new artists in this year’s lineup are the thrilling Gitana Georgia & Istvan Betyar (of The Blue Mushroom Sirkus Psyshow) and the hilarious Giant Seagulls (of Surreal McCoy Street Theatre Company).
