‘Life’ to light up Lincoln Cathedral

This February, Lincoln Cathedral will host a stunning light and sound installation which will transform the interior of the building into a giant canvas.

‘Life’ by Luxmuralis, will see the historic spaces bathed in stunning images and designs, complemented by an evocative soundtrack. The installation will take visitors on an immersive journey from dawn to dusk, through the natural world.

It is the first time that Lincoln Cathedral has hosted a light and sound show and there is great anticipation for the event which will transform the whole of the Cathedral floor including the nave, St Hugh’s Choir, the transepts, allowing visitors to see the stunning spaces as never before.

The Very Revd Christine Wilson, Dean of Lincoln, said that she was very much looking forward to seeing the Cathedral brought to life in such a creative and inspiring way. “This fantastic building has for centuries sat as a beacon of light across the city, so it is fitting that now we’ll be using light to tell the fascinating story of life in all its many forms. It will be an exciting, colourful and entertaining experience for everyone to enjoy.”

The Dean added that it will also be an occasion for people to be inspired to act for the protection of the planet.

“While it will be uplifting, it will also be a reminder that an essential part of our responsibility as Christians is to protect and maintain God’s creation and enable both the physical environment and the communities within it to flourish. There is an urgent call to respond, both collectively and as individuals, with faith and vigour to the ongoing challenges of the global climate crisis.

“As people spend time in the Cathedral, immersed in light and sound, we hope it will offer them the opportunity to contemplate our role in the natural world, and how we can each have a positive influence on our environment.”

Life by Luxmuralis will run from Wednesday 15th February to Saturday 18th February, with several performances per evening. Booking is essential and tickets are still available from the Cathedral’s website – www.lincolncathedral.com
