Lumiere London 2018: The capital becomes a gallery of neon

Last night saw the return of Lumiere London. Spanning four days, over 50 artworks across six areas of the capital will be transforming landmarks and buildings. A host of local and international artists have created neon projections, installations and illuminations. Lumiere is back in the capital two years after the huge success of its debut event in 2016. This year is bigger and brighter than ever. From 5.30pm-10.30pm between 18-21 January, Westminster, South Bank, the West End, Mayfair, Fitzrovia and Kings’ Cross will play host to spectacular expressions of light. We went along on Thursday to see the first night and were pleasantly surprised to see the crowds more manageable this year (in 2016, Metro Girl got stuck in a nightmarish human ‘traffic jam’ in Piccadilly Circus). Here’s some photos of this year’s installations.
