A spectacular sound and light show on the west front and in the nave of the Cathedral, created by the artists of Luxmuralis and suitable for all ages.

The stunning light display, timed to coincide with the start of the Advent season, is designed to capture the imagination of all the family and point towards Christmas. It begins outside with a light art projection onto the three great porticos of the Cathedral, set to music composed by David Harper. The audience then enter the Cathedral to see the interior of the nave full of light projections with accompanying sound.

The immersive piece has been created by the Artistic Collaboration known as ‘Luxmuralis’. Peter Walker, the artist whose creation One Small Step is currently on display at Peterborough Cathedral, is Artistic Director of Luxmuralis, working alongside audio visual technicians and other artists.
