Lumiere London + NY Fold Pizza Review
So today I visit Lumiere London a light festival here in town. And also review pizza sold by the slice at NY Fold Pizza. Lumiere is an art festival which lights up the city for 4 evenings and is also free to attend. Maps are also available on the Lumiere website to see all the landmarks and locations that feature installations. Also some of the largest can be found on Regent Street and Piccadilly Circus.
I also review NY Fold pizza which is inspired by the way New Yorkers eat their take away pizza slices. NY Fold on London’s Charing Cross road has an award winning chef on their team. And so are already featuring on some of the best pizza in London lists. Check out my YouTube vlog of the evening:
Free to attend
The First ever Lumiere London launches on the 14th January 2016. A Spectacular free to attend four night event to chase away the January blues. And also to show the city in a new light. Developed by creative producers Artichoke and also supported by the Mayor of London, Lumiere London runs from 14th-17th January 2016, 6.30-10.30pm.
Free to attend, the festival will also re-imagine London’s urban landscape and architecture. In 30 artworks across four main areas: King’s Cross; Mayfair and Grosvenor Square; Piccadilly, Regent Street, Leicester Square and St James’s; and Trafalgar Square and Westminster.
Also with founding support from Atom Bank, Bloomberg Philanthropies, Heart of London Business Alliance, London & Partners and King’s Cross, plus additional support from a host of partners and sponsors, including Westminster City Council. So Lumiere London will transform parts of London’s West End and King’s Cross into a glittering pedestrian playground.
Londoners and also tourists
Lumiere London aims to attract Londoners and also tourists alike. Right into the heart of the capital and also many iconic London streets. During what is traditionally also one of the quieter months of the year. Festival visitors are also being encouraged to explore the dazzling night-time gallery on foot. So discovering parts of the capital for the first time and seeing familiar sights in a new light.
Suggested walking routes
There are also easy walking routes between many of the 30 exhibits and plenty of opportunities to stay and linger over a drink or a meal at the many venues and attractions along the way.
So suggested walking routes also include from Leicester Square through to Trafalgar Square and Westminster Abbey; from Piccadilly Circus to Grosvenor Square via Piccadilly Arcade and St James’s; along Regent Street via Carnaby to Oxford Circus; and from Euston Road to King’s Cross, Granary Square and beyond.
