A SPECTACULAR unique light show is coming to Gloucester Cathedral next week. 

A new light and sound display is opening at the cathedral on Friday, October 19. 

As part of the exhibition, almost every inch of the inside of the building will be covered with stunning light projections, accompanied by a bespoke soundtrack.

Organisers say the display will take visitors on a journey that delves into the Cathedral’s 1,000 year long history as well as its architecture and stained glass. 

The installation is due to take place until Saturday, October 28. 

Gazette Series: Luxmuralis / Gloucester Cathedral

It has been created by projection art gallery, Luxmuralis in a collaboration between artist and sculptor Peter Walker and composer David Harper.

The Very Reverend Andrew Zihni, Dean of Gloucester, said: “It has been a delight to work with the Luxmuralis team on this exciting project, which shines a light on the Cathedral’s rich tapestry of stories, including our faith, architecture and history. 

“Whether you’re a regular visitor or are coming here for the very first time, we hope that Light Eternal will encourage people to step inside and encounter this building in new and innovative ways. 

“It is brilliant to see that so many people have already booked to come and see it – as always, all are most welcome.” 

Peter Walker, Artistic Director and Lead Artist at Luxmuralis, said: The response to Light Eternal so far has been fantastic. 

“This will be the first time in over 1,000 years that the Cathedral has had such an artwork installed. 

“It will be wonderful to see people of all ages, from around the city and further afield, walk through the ancient architecture and discover the Cathedral anew in what will be a truly immersive experience. 

“We are looking forward to seeing this original artwork, which has been created for the Cathedral, come to life and paint the walls with light.” 

General admission is £9.50 per adult and £6 per child (6-17 years, under 6s go free).
