My final feature of the year was an opinion piece following a recent visit to Durham.
Here’s a sample of the story:
The light-festival idea is nothing new, of course.
Lyon first came up with the bright idea in 1999 and the Fete des Lumieres has become a major visitor attraction (it runs December 8-11 this year).
Blackpool illuminations, too, have a long history of providing ‘electric sunshine’, brightening up Lancastrian nights since 1879.But I’ve had enough of light-festival overkill. Turn off, tune out, just drop it, folks.
Read the whole feature via Telegrpah Travel, It’s time to pull the plug on overrated winter light festivals.
