Architects of Air are back with an amazing new luminarium!

LuminiMax combines smaller luminarium structures (Lumini) to create one magical experience. Explore the beautiful colours and patterns of each inflatable dome in the enormous structure captivating the senses through natural light.

Luminaria are hugely popular all over the world, and the Nottingham-based company has delivered amazing experiences for local families for over 30 years. LuminiMax is designed to allow the Lumini to be enjoyed within the community, connecting with local people for years to come.

What's the difference between tickets? 

Priority Access
Beat the queues by booking Priority Access tickets for specified timeslots. Upon arrival, bookers join a separate, shorter queue that is given priority. You will need to arrive around 10 minutes before your timeslot. These tickets are limited and sell out fast!

Standard Entry

Standard Entry tickets can be booked for one of the three entry periods each day: 11am-1pm, 1-3pm and 3pm-close, allowing you a bit more flexibility with timings. You can enter the luminarium anytime during the period that you have booked for (so no need to stress if you’re running late!) – we just recommend arriving during the first hour of your entry period.

With these tickets, you may have to queue for up to an hour outdoors. There is a play park nearby to help entertain children.

Grown-Ups Only

For some, Architects of Air’s luminaria are at their best when full of children marvelling at the wonders inside. For others, our Grown-ups Only session allows them to enjoy these colourful structures in the sole presence of other adults.

Please arrive for the start of the slot you have booked for. You may have to stand in a short queue outdoors.

Baby and Toddler Tickets

Entry is free for children under 18 months; however, tickets are required. These tickets are available to pre-book over the phone (0115 846 7777) and in-person via Lakeside’s Box Office, or can be gained upon entry to the Luminarium.

With thanks and acknowledgements to Highfields Park and Nottingham City Council for their continued support of this event.
