Worcester Cathedral will be transported into space with the arrival of a new exhibition in September.

SPACE, a show of lights and sound, will adopt the cathedral’s interior between Wednesday September 22 and Saturday 25.

The exhibit has been designed by award winning artistic collaboration Luxumuralis, consisting of sculptor Peter Walker and composer David Harper, who have brought similarly stunning projections to cathedrals across the country.

Stephen Edwards, residentiary canon of Worcester Cathedral, said: “We’re very excited to be hosting the SPACE exhibition in September and it promises to be a spectacular show, featuring an immersive internal sound and light journey that will transform the interior of our majestic Cathedral.

“Projects like this are very exciting and important for the Cathedral as they allow visitors to experience our magnificent building in the evening, and in a different way.

“We are always keen to show off the diversity of our stunning building, attract new visitors and allow people the opportunity to experience the Cathedral in all its glory.”

Dr Edwards believes the event is just what the city needs and should offer something for all the family.

“The show is designed to appeal to all ages, and we can’t wait to welcome lots of visitors to enjoy a magical evening, walking amongst the stars and journeying to the edge of the universe!

“The visual spectacular allows visitors to go on a journey through space and time and the chance to walk amongst the stars as sound and light art are projected onto the stunning architectural features within the Cathedral.

“Visitors will be immersed in sound and light as they have the chance to explore and contemplate their own personal journeys.

“After a difficult 18 months, we hope the local community will support this fantastic event and enjoy it as much as we are sure we will.”

Tickets will go on sale in early August. Entry times will be staggered each evening with the exhibit opened from 7:30pm and ending at 10pm. Tours are expected to last between 40 and 60 minutes.
