Bristol Cathedral is hosting a ground-breaking, cosmic light show taking spectators on a journey through space. The Luxmuralis show will immerse visitors at the Cathedral as its dazzling projections light up the medieval architechture.

The Dean of Bristol hopes the multi-sensory show will move people “with a sense of awe and wonder”. Reverend, Mandy Ford said: “We are excited to be hosting this multi-sensory experience in Bristol Cathedral and hope that everyone will be moved by a sense of awe and wonder as we experience the light and sound of the universe inside our ancient building.”

The Space Voyager light show will run from 5:30 to 11:00pm - lasting between 45-60 minutes, although visitors can enjoy the show at their own pace. Tickets must be purchased in advance, prices start at £6 for children and are available now here.

“We are all responsible for this small planet that we started to explore in the 1960’s, climate change is part of the narrative,” says artist Peter Walker, Luxmuralis Lead Artist and Artistic Director. “The artwork is about reflecting inwards as much as it is about reflecting outwards, and about how we take care of our small piece of the Universe.”

The show will run until Saturday (November 5).
