It is Lumiere London – exhibits of lights only for a limited time, 14th to 17th January 2016 from 6:30pm to 10:30pm, appearing in landmarks across London, which would lead to date night, walk-hunt for Martin and I in the evening. Forget the normal lights and adverts in Piccadilly Circus – the show stopping displays took the attention here, transforming the city. It was a mesmerising evening except the bitter coldness and Bump Lentil constantly moving around my tum, making the walk unbearable. Gloves, scarves, hats and a warm jacket is a priority if you are going to visit tonight or tomorrow.
My favourite spectacles were Les Lumineoles and 195 Piccadilly, both escorted with eventful, magical music. With no transport on this main road came freedom, like it was New Year’s Eve, wondering the streets.
Personally, I feel overall that this should last longer for more to appreciate, and that we should adopt this type of art across London permanently as it adds a romanticised, illuminating momentum. I just wish I had the energy to see them all.
