Durham’s Lumiere Festival started in 2009 and the perpetrators are still at large. We have gathered video evidence of the gangs involved over the years and with your help, we will bring them to justice to make sure this never happens again.
We have established a pattern of activity in which the offenders strike every second year, and we predict that the upcoming 2019 Durham Lumiere Festival will be on 14-17 November, between 4.30 pm and 11 pm each night. According to police intelligence, there will be 37 different exhibitions of criminal luminosity, 26 of which will be outside the central peninsula area where tickets are required.
Here are some chilling video highlights of previous Lumiere riots. As you can see, it’s total chaos:
Not the best quality, but this is the only video we can find from 2009.
