A Cathedral Illuminated 2016
In 2016 as part of ‘Lichfield Lumiere‘ the City saw the return of ‘A Cathedral Illuminated’ where 20,000 people turned up to see the Spectacular light and sound display projected onto Lichfield Cathedral by artistic collaboration ‘Luxmuralis‘. The Son-et-lumiere and wider installation which included ‘10,000 Angels’ and projection artwork around the city centre lasted for five nights from 19 – 23rd December 2016, with four shows per night and all free for the public to attend. Both BBC Midlands today and ITV central filmed live at the event. www.LichfieldLumiere.com
Here is a short clip of the Amazing Light and Sound show:
Alongside the Son-et-lumiere viewers that had free tickets were able to continue inside the Cathedral to witness the art installation of 10,000 angels created by Artist in Residence Peter Walker Sculptor. Ten thousand school children from the district each wrote a Christmas message inside a paper angel which were then suspended in the south transcept of the Cathedral for the duration of the installation throughout the Christmas period.
