Ghostly echo of lumiere looms over Durham Castle

A GHOSTLY apparition has appeared above Durham Castle – reviving memories of last year’s Lumiere light spectacular.

The installation by Durham University students was inspired by a ghost said to haunt the castle’s black staircase.

Echo of the Lumiere, featuring light-based installations around Durham Castle, runs until Sunday (March 16).

The art includes a garden gnome in the master’s garden.

It has been funded by University College master Professor David Held and is being led by senior common room member Goshka Bialek, an internationally-renowned artist.

Lumiere 2013 saw about 175,000 people visit Durham City over four nights last November.

Good luck to the students having a go, but what I see in the photo does not transport me.

Which way has the gnome swung in the Higgins saga?
