Crowds flock to the Lincoln Luminarium

This story is over

Lincoln’s Luminarium opened for the first time on Friday and over 900 people came on the day to explore the inflatable domes — and you can still check it out this weekend.

The demand last night saw on-the-door queues stretch to two hours long and despite the long wait the reactions from visitors was positive.

Hundreds of people are queueing already for the Lincoln Luminarium experience and more are arriving. Details and inside tour here:

Andrea Bayes-Green said on Facebook, “We queued for two hours, it was amazing, we really enjoyed it.”

Jenny Aldridge, also took to social media to express her joy at experiencing The Luminarium, “It was totally awe inspiring. What a wonderful way to bring art into the public eye”

The walk-in-sculpture is designed by the Architects of Air and has toured across the world. The light-up maze has been brought to Lincoln to celebrate its 10th anniversary.

The exhibition can be found just outside the University of Lincoln’s Minerva Building, on the banks of Brayford Pool.

The instillation will remain in place until Sunday April 8 and is open from 1pm until 7pm.

Tickets are £4 on entry and toddlers under 18 months go free (no prams). The structure is wheelchair accessible.
