Don't know if it was the exact same thing, but a similar thing in Amsterdam last year was great!
We saw the flying fish on Friday, then on Saturday saw Westminster Abbey and Kings Cross. Liked the flying fish, it wasn't too busy on Friday and I enjoyed being able to walk down Piccadilly. Didn't enjoy the Kings Cross ones, too many people, and it all felt like a big old corporate hooha to validate the new developments in Kings Cross. Loved the Westminster Abbey one - not too many people, and really beautiful to look at. I think things like this work best when the light/art is interacting with the architecture. I think the Elephant and Westminster were the only ones that we saw that did so, the rest were all just fairly random lights on buildings.
It's returning to London 18th to 21st Jan 2018, only this time it's all over town

I've been keeping an eye on this. Very wary after last time, which was so insanely busy. Hopefully spreading it across a larger area will help with crowds, but the fact it's only three days means it's likely to still be pretty intense
It's actually 4 days. Last time I went on the Thursday and Sunday and avoided the worst of the crowds.
I've started a new thread for this years one: Lumiere London: 18-21 January 2018
