As most of you will know, Lumiere is returning to Durham this November. Artichoke, the festival producer, and Durham County Council which has commissioned the festival for the fourth time, are working with Durham BID and the Policy Research Group of St Chad’s College on The Bailey to find ways to better collaborate with and support local businesses in the lead up to and during Lumiere.
But first, we very much want to hear from you. Very soon you’ll be invited to participate in a survey telling us what you think of the festival, what you need from us this year and how we can help you make the most of increased visitor numbers to the city. From what you tell us, we’ll work hard to provide information, advice, toolkits and support.
From now on, the festival will also feature in every issue of the BID Picture. As the date approaches, this will include information about how the city will be affected, road closures and what this might mean for your business.
