Mars: War & Peace arrives at Cathedral

Thursday 11 January

See Luke Jerram's stunning artwork for free during the day or just £3pp after dark.

Peterborough Cathedral is the stunning setting for Luke Jerram's spectacular artwork, Mars: War & Peace.

Presented with a new soundtrack at Peterborough Cathedral from 9th - 29th January 2024, a space to encourage peaceful contemplation, Mars: War & Peace provides an opportunity for the public to consider the history of human conflict around the world. Visitors will feel transported to the inhospitable desert wasteland of Mars, whilst also reflecting on the realities of war for ordinary communities on our planet. 

Accompanying the Mars sculpture is a newly created sound   composition by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award winning   composer Dan Jones. Featuring the sounds of seas, deserts and   clips from NASA missions to Mars, it also incorporates the   sounds of distant bombing and people marching, as if to war.

 The artwork is a fusion of Mars imagery, light and surround sound composition and will be open to the public to view for   FREE during the day and for £3pp on selected evenings.
