In Pictures: Lumiere Durham brightens up city’s winter nights

Durham’s Lumiere festival started 10 years ago and draws thousands of visitors into the city centre to enjoy free, public art pieces on dark winter nights.

At this year’s event, lyricist and author Sir Tim Rice played his piece Keys Of Light on a white piano which simultaneously projected light and shapes on to a nearby student block.
