A Cathedral Illuminated

Venue: Lichfield Cathedral

Lichfield Cathedral is inviting visitors to get into the Christmas spirit with the return of its annual ‘A Cathedral Illuminated’ show featuring spectacular visuals projected across the building.

Following the success of last year’s sell-out ‘A Cathedral Illuminated’ – which attracted thousands of visitors to the cathedral – the award-winning festive display returns between Monday 18th and Saturday 23rd December, and promises to be bigger and better!

This year’s theme, ‘Star of Wonder, Star of Light’, will take viewers on a Christmas journey around the whole Cathedral Close, leading to the West Front where they will see the Nativity story as never before in an array of mesmerising images and sounds. The experience continues inside the cathedral where visitors can also enjoy a star installation, the annual Christmas tree festival and readings at the crib.

The projections by Lichfield Cathedral’s artist-in-residence Peter Walker will be accompanied by original music by composer David Harper, who collaborate under the name Luxmuralis.

Last year’s spectacular illuminations won ‘Best Staffordshire Event 2017’, chosen by readers of Staffordshire ‘What’s On’.

‘A Cathedral Illuminated’ is taking place at various times between Monday 18th and Saturday 23rd December (not Thursday 21st December). Admission is by ticket only, with tickets available online at www.lichfield-cathedral.org or from The Shop at No.9, priced £4 (£3 for under 16s and free for children under 3), with a family ticket (two adults, two children) for £10.
