Lumiere at Durham

Dunelm Days in Durham
Saturday 16 November, 4.30-6.30pm

Celebrate the 5th anniversary of our global alumni celebration, Dunelm Days, and the 10th anniversary of the UK's largest light festival in Durham.

Lumiere Durham is one of the most spectacular events in the city's calendar and this year alumnus Richard Roberts (St John's 1976-79) is hosting an exclusive pre-Lumiere drinks reception at his home in The College, located next door to Durham Cathedral and in the heart of the picturesque installation.

This event has limited capacity and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Tickets are priced at £15 per person to include a complimentary Durham gift bag. All bookings must be received by Friday 8 November. Click the 'Booking' tab above to secure your place.

As access to the Peninsula will be ticketed during Lumiere peak hours 4.30-7.30pm each night and a one-way system will be in place, guests will be required to bring with them a printout of a letter which will authorise their access. The letter will be provided by the University prior to the event and will also provide details of which access point to use.

Please note: entry to Richard's home is by stairs only. If you have accessibility requirements, please consider this when booking your place.
